The IFES Europe regional team are recruiting for an exciting new opportunity to direct and develop the InterAction program as well as the InterAction (alumni) network.  

InterAction has long been a significant and strategic ministry within IFES Europe, as a program which allows IFES students, graduates and young staff to explore short to medium-term cross-cultural mission opportunities across the European national movements, who benefit through the provision of trainee staff. This is a significant opportunity to develop the program for new contexts and new strategic priorities. In conjunction with the InterAction Administrator, in this role you will develop and refine the processes of recruitment, placement and pastoral care for InterAction volunteers, as well as training for national movements regarding the placement of volunteers and liaison with partner mission organisations. The role also includes responsibility to develop and nurture a growing network of InterAction alumni. 

In this role you will take steps to ensure that cross-cultural mission is promoted within the IFES Europe region, and you will advocate for a Biblical vision of cross-cultural mission among national movement leaders. The responsibilities of the role will be assisted administratively by the InterAction Administrator. 

Candidates for this position must be available for travel up to 12 weeks per year. They will generate financial support towards their salary. The position is part-time (20hrs) with the possibility of negotiating as workload demands. The position may be compatible alongside another ministry role.
