We are seeking to appoint someone to lead and oversee the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) project in New Zealand. Working with the OCC team, you will be integral to the mobilisation, empowerment and proselytisation of volunteers each year that make this project possible. You will oversee all OCC activity in New Zealand, covering The North Island, Auckland and the South Island, ensuring that aggressive growth goals in key areas and oversee program objectives are met to increase both shoeboxes and volunteer engagement.  You will also oversee and spiritually shepherd high-level volunteers to further the ministry of OCC in the New Zealand.



Whenever Samaritan’s Purse establishes field offices in response to international crises, we need individuals at those sites to carry out project-related work. Our field office structure generally consists of the following positions: Country Director, Program Manager, Logistics Coordinator, and Office Manager/Field Accountant. Depending on the scope of the project, we may also seek to fill other positions such as Deputy Country Director and specialists in Public Health, Water and Sanitation, Food, Construction, Engineering, Evangelism, Community Outreach, and Fleet Management.

We look for motivated, competent, and qualified individuals whose educations and life skills meet our needs and who have a heart and passion for the Gospel and the ability to get a job done. We are particularly interested in those who have third world experience. Foreign languages are not generally required, but are beneficial. Our international field staff assignments are full-time positions with heavy workloads in harsh and oftentimes unstable environments. International field staff usually serve a minimum of 12 months, and terms of service are determined by program needs and applicant availability. We offer a competitive salary and benefit package.
