Community transformation advisors, Africa


Community transformation advisors, Africa

Do you have a mind for business and a passion to help others?

Our partners in Central and East Africa are looking for people with experience of setting up small businesses to come alongside communities and work together to explore and develop simple business models that work well in their context and which can help people out of poverty.

This role could involve working with local ministries such as the department of agriculture, building on their existing strengths and exploring creative and sustainable ways of income generation.

There are also opportunities to work specifically with women, creating opportunities for women in the community to start their own businesses and encouraging their leadership and ownership of women to lead these projects.

There is also the opportunity to work with young people to develop enterprise projects designed to benefit their community.


We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of the people we serve, our partners, our volunteers, and our staff. We believe that every child or adult we come into contact with has the right to be protected from all forms of harm and abuse. Our recruitment and selection processes are in line with our Safeguarding Policy and the SCHR Misconduct Disclosure Scheme, which CMS is a member of as part of our commitment to safeguarding.    


Our core values of being pioneering, relational, faithful and evangelistic are integral to everything we do, and we work hard to ensure that every member of staff is valued, supported and encouraged to continually learn and develop their skills.
