INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S MINISTRY DIRECTOR

Position Type: Overseas, Support-Raised (negotiable depending on qualifications)

Reports to: President

Primary Duties and Responsibilities: Love Justice International operates 17 family-like children's homes in three countries (Nepal, Bangladesh, and India), as well as a school aimed at providing our children transformative education that will help them become difference-makers in their nation. While our anti-trafficking work is in expansion mode, we do not plan to expand our children's work (homes and schools) until we can prove objectively, with data, that the strategy is working. The job of the International Children's Ministry Director will be to facilitate the scaling up of the children's home model when the time comes to do so. This will involve identifying the right people and places for this expansion and helping local fields adapt and install our core children's ministry processes. The Children's Ministry Director will need to spend extensive time in Nepal and other Asian countries to learn about our model.

Work Environment and Requirements: This position will be based in Asia at least for one year, and it will involve significant travel.

ANTI-TRAFFICKING FIELD LIAISON

Position Type: Support-Raised, Overseas

Reports to: Regional Anti-Trafficking Director

Primary Duties and Responsibilities: To ensure excellence among our 10 anti-human trafficking fields in Asia and Africa, Love Justice uses a number of "core processes." For example, we use a questioning protocol to identify trafficking victims and a Victim Interview Form to collect information about each victim. We also use Searchlight (our human trafficking data entry portal), and we have developed a Case Information Form to collect crucial data about each trafficking case. We also implement a transit monitoring standard, which is our guidebook for how to do transit monitoring. We have 27 such processes connected to our anti-trafficking work which we intend for each field to implement. Our model is to choose the right local partners and put a lot of trust in them to coordinate their projects day-to-day, with our role being largely to assist them in the adaptation and installation of these processes. Anti-Trafficking Field Liaisons will choose a number of these processes to "specialize" in, and they will assist local fields in adapting them, under the guidance of the relevant regional anti-trafficking directors.   

Work Environment and Requirements: This position will be based in Asia and could involve travel all over the world. Eventually, we will want one or more Anti-Trafficking Field Liaisons to be based in South Africa. 

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities: Our core processes involve a number of specialty areas, including finance, accounting, legal, human resources, and human assessments, but many of these processes are original and just require good communication and work skills. Business experience, including familiarity with complex spreadsheets would be very helpful.  All candidates should be mature Christians who are passionate about justice, self-motivated, diligent, problem-solvers, faithful, and willing to adapt to a variety of difficult contexts. A minimum of a bachelor's or master's degree in a relevant field is required.
