Do you enjoy bringing a diverse team together to tackle different projects? Do you have a heart for how God is working in and through the campsites, support ministries, and churches of the CCCNZ Movement? We’re on the hunt for a skilled Operations Manager to join the CCCNZ staff team for a full-time position (40 hours) in Palmerston North, Manawatū.
Christian Community Churches of New Zealand (CCCNZ) is a national service trust with an Open Brethren heritage, serving and supporting Kiwi churches, support ministries and campsites within the movement. Our heart is to prayerfully partner with God to point people to Jesus, through the gospel, from the Scriptures.
We’ve got a unique and varied staff team working together to support our movement. We’re committed individuals who are motivated by using our distinct gifts to serve together as a team. We’re proud of our mustard seed culture and believe that some of the best things start small and grow from there.
This is a management role within a hands on ministry context. The successful applicant will have experience with various IT platforms, be able to manage moving parts and oversee the execution of events and communications. You’ll need the ability to grasp the big picture, along with the patience and humility to spend time on the finer details of day to day office administration—the nuts and bolts of bringing about a vision.
The successful applicant will also be hands on involved in the day to day financials of the organisation while working alongside a highly competent finance committee. We’re looking for someone with a working knowledge and capability of finances within the charities sector to manage growth and financial restraints.
We’re looking for someone who loves all things administration and is able to use this to implement and maintain workable systems and solutions, enabling, encouraging and working alongside our diverse and remotely located staff team to work together effectively. The role will also support the board administratively so an understanding and ability to perform board secretarial work within a highly functioning governance board is an important part of the role.
The successful applicant will have excellent project management skills—the ability to handle departmental budgets and manage distinct personality types. We’re looking for someone who can compassionately work with and lead team members to implement a vision; someone who is able to ask the right questions and draw out clarity, ensuring deadlines are met and targets are realistic.
We’re looking for someone who is an effective communicator, has a passion for thinking strategically and readily applies a faith mindset to managing budgets, people and resources. We’re looking for someone who understands the ways God has gifted them and feels a call to use these gifts to serve the kingdom.
If this is you, we’d love to hear from you and see if you might be the right fit for our team.
