The Mission to Seafarers (MtS) has an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Church and Volunteer Engagement Manager. This is a new role which will focus on helping deliver two key elements of our regional strategy as we look to communicate our biblical and spiritual vision for MtS to a new and wider audience. Firstly, we aim to expand upon our already strong foundation of UK church relationships through maintaining existing, and identifying and fostering new partnerships; and secondly, we are focused on diversifying and growing our team of committed volunteers.
