Opportunity for administrator/office manager
AfriCom, YWAM’s communication team for Africa, is offering an amazing opportunity for an administrator/office manager. Based in Muizenberg, South Africa, this is a key role in coordinating the work of AfriCom around the continent.
This person will offer general administrative support to the team, organizing events and developing effective systems to help manage a growing and dynamic ministry. There is also scope for him/her to participate in teaching and presentations and of course to travel widely to meet with teams and attend events throughout Africa.
Communication Teams in YWAM
Back in 2004, during a time of prayer, YWAM’s Global Leadership Team received the insight that the organization had an ineffective central nervous (communication) system.
Lynn Green, the International Chairman of YWAM, explained “That picture of a healthy body is the ideal picture of what our goal is … in reconnecting all our communication cells. Communication is vital to the Kingdom of God and to God’s purposes.”
Motivated by this insight, YWAM has mobilized communication teams to seek creative ways for YWAM ministries to effectively and efficiently communicate with one another. For Africa, God clearly spoke of multiplying communication teams across the continent.
The AfriCom core team is based in Muizenberg, South Africa. We are developing three regional AfriCom teams, in South Africa, Nigeria and Uganda.
AfriCom facilitates YWAM’s Africa projects by mobilizing people, prayer and resources, enabling YWAM teams to play a sustainable and transformational role in their communities. We do this by working closely with YWAM leaders to gather information from around the continent and communicate about YWAM’s work in Africa through print, web, video, text message, data and face-to-face presentations.
YWAM is committed to sharing knowledge across the continent. “By sharing information, we enable ministry teams to be better resourced,” said Lydia Smit, AfriCom Missions Communicator. “It is a way of empowering isolated communities with information that they can use to make informed decisions.” Missions communicators play a key role in attracting resources and staff to support needy projects.
If you have good administrative skills and enjoy diversity, if you are an excellent problem-solver and like to shape your own job, playing a part in a variety of exciting projects, then this could be the place for you!
Our current office manager leaves at the end of 2010. We are looking for a replacement to start anytime from October 2010 onwards.
