For over 200 years CMS has been at the forefront of global mission, living out the gospel of Jesus, seeing lives changed and communities transformed. If you join CMS you will find an organisation that has been reinvigorated with a fresh vision to make disciples of Jesus among people at the edges, both in the UK and around the world.

What you’ll need to succeed

The successful candidate will have a minimum of one year’s experience in an administrative role or similar, and will demonstrate strong organisational and multi-tasking skills.

It is also a requirement for this post holder to be in sympathy with the aims and values of CMS.
