Wycliffe Bible Translators exists to enable all peoples to engage with the Bible in a language that speaks to their heart. As part of a Global Alliance of organisations, Wycliffe belongs to a global movement committed to seeing communities transformed through Bible translation.
For us this is a time of significant change. Led by James Poole as Executive Director, a strategic review is now focusing Wycliffe on more effective delivery of its primary objectives and further developing the work.
An exciting part of what we do is supporting around 30 independent Bible translation projects run by local people and organisations in 15 countries. We see the number and scope of projects growing significantly and are investing in this area.
This role is a new one for us. Reporting directly to James, the job is ‘hands on’ and operational but also has a pioneering element. It’s an opportunity to be at the heart of what Wycliffe does. Being part of the UK team the role is focused on supporting existing international partners and developing new partnerships by building strong effective relationships.
To be successful you will need to have excellent relationship skills, some experience of working with local international partners, exposure to monitoring and evaluation, be self-motivated, organised and driven with a passion for the work of Bible translation.
It is likely you will have gained at least three or four years’ experience as a team member in the international development department of an international non-government organisation (INGO) and are looking for your next career move.
This post is subject to an occupational requirement that the post holder is a committed Christian under Part 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010.
