PiNZ Logo on whitePioneers New Zealand is a growing mobilising agency operating in New Zealand since 1998. Our parent body is Pioneers International, an organisation that supports over 3,000 members working in more than 300 teams in cross-cultural Christian ministry around the globe.

We are seeking a person to take a major role in managing and leading our mobilisation work in New Zealand and in contributing to the operation and growth of Pioneers International.

The board wishes to consolidate the collective leadership model begun in 2015 with the appointment of two people to share the role of director in an interim capacity. This position requires a person with proven skills in collaborative and effective team leadership. Our major specification is that the person is called by God to do the work and is of proven character as a transformational leader.

The appointment could be to either a full- or part-time position depending on the circumstances of the person appointed. The team approach provides flexibility to tailor the specific responsibilities to make full use of the appointee's gifts, skills and experience.

Some remuneration is available for the position. As Pioneers New Zealand revenue comes mainly from worker contributions and is limited, staff are expected to raise some personal financial support.

Pioneers New Zealand is based in Auckland. However, it may be possible for the director to reside elsewhere depending on individual circumstances.

Application packs will be available in February 2017.
