INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITY: Language Program Manager
Peter Drucker once said, “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” When was the last time you had a chance to do both?
As a supported* language program manager, you will work with partners to oversee language development and translation programs to advance Bible translation!
Today, over 2000 people groups, 170 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!
Job Location: Southeast Asia
Want to work in a different location? Wycliffe USA has many open positions located in Africa, Asia, Europe, Americas, and the Pacific! Even though this job is located overseas, you must be legally authorized to work in the United States as per U.S. employment laws.
Every day is different! One day you might participate in program planning and provide leadership to project team leaders. Later you could cultivate a collaborative environment for partners and facilitate effective monitoring and reporting of the program. Another day you would promote personal and professional development of team members.
This job might be for you if…
- You demonstrate the desire and ability to support corporate Biblical and religious goals and participate in regular work-related spiritual activities without reservation (Spiritual Bona Fide Occupational Qualification)
- You are analytical and organized and enjoy strategic planning, problem solving
- You are an excellent communicator and facilitator and understand cross-cultural differences.
- You have basic computer skills, personnel management and financial skills.
