The Business

The Gideons International in Australia (TGIA) is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to winning others to Christ through associating together for service, sharing personal testimony, and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While we are often recognized for our work with hotels, we also place and distribute Scriptures in strategic locations so they are available to those who want them, as well as to those who may not know they need them. We aspire to be an extension of the mission of the local church.


About the role

As the Operations and Administration Lead, you will help consolidate systems, processes and policies that foster relationships, strengthen foundations and generate engagement, impact and action in the mission of winning others to Christ. The role requires outstanding people skills, communication skills and innovation and will focus on building a healthy team culture and achieving increased organisational performance.

As the successful candidate you will have:
