Indigenous peoples’ advocate, Latin America
Are you a passionate Christian who is willing to work alongside the indigenous peoples of Latin America?
- Are you passionate about people’s rights?
- Do you want to work towards a more just society?
- Do you long to serve together with systemically marginalised peoples?
- Do you want to help others released to fulfil their potential in God’s mission?
We are looking for a passionate Christian who is willing to work alongside the indigenous peoples of Latin America. CMS has a long history of serving some of the indigenous peoples in Latin America, including the Mapuche in Chile; Wichí, Toba, Chorote in Northern Argentina and Enxet in Paraguay. CMS feels called to enter a new stage of that work and we want you to join us in this developing mission.
Your professional background and specific qualifications are of secondary importance to us.
What is crucial is that you see opportunities where others don’t; you have a mature and living relationship with Jesus; you have experience of engaging with marginalised people and are used to working on the edges of the mainstream; are a team player and are prepared to learn a new language (or two).
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.
If this catches your interest please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We would love to talk further and get to know you.
