Join our team
Do you have skills in project management and operations? Are you interested in finance or communications? Do you have skills in managing social media? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, and you are based in Birmingham, then GAiN UK needs you!
In the UK, GAiN is working to involve students, professionals and families in finding ways to respond with humility and generosity to the broken and hurting world we live in.
We need more people to achieve this aim.
There are three ways you could get involved:
1. If this vision has grabbed your attention, and you want to become part of the work full-time, you may be interested in joining GAiN as a staff member.
2. If you are a recent graduate, you could join our internship programme, being trained and equipped for whichever path you choose in life through active involvement in GAiN projects and other Agapé movements.
3. If you are unable to commit full-time, but would still like to be involved, then you could volunteer with GAiN in an operational capacity, overseeing project management, finance or communications. This could be either short-term or long-term.
Your role could be coordinating much-needed projects to a particular country, informing GAiN donors and partners of the vital work that their support is enabling, or providing efficient reporting and management of finances associated with specific projects. What you contribute on an operational level would be an essential part of demonstrating unconditional love to suffering people across the world.
