Have you got what it takes to live and serve with MAF overseas?

The lifestyle and working conditions

Working hours for MAF staff working abroad are usually 38 hours per week. Staff are entitled to 20 days annual leave plus a minimum of 8 public holidays per year. Home assignment is provided in addition and accrues at 3 weeks per year, it is normally taken every 2 years, and is used for support raising, visiting MAF UK, medicals and debriefs. There is good medical care available in most locations, and where necessary, we support travel to higher levels of care. MAF holds emergency medical and evacuation insurance and has self-funded medical coverage for general ailments. Candidates undertake medical and psychological assessments to determine their suitability and to provide guidance for their location of service.

The family’s needs

MAF considers family needs seriously and takes these into account where possible when deciding the deployment location. Work opportunities for spouses and accessibility to visas also vary by location, as do schooling levels for children. Sometimes staff relocate to a different programme to accommodate stages of education.

Servant’s heart

As a Christian mission, we seek people with suitable skills, qualifications and experience who also sense God is calling them to work abroad. Serving with MAF is an adventure and there are many benefits, but MAF seeks those who are flexible, servant-hearted and resilient enough to thrive in a dynamic environment.
