We have an exciting vision to see more staff join us in more locations around the UK and Ireland. This will mean more international student lives are transformed.
Yet, to see this vision become a reality, we need more workers as part of our expansion. Are you or someone you know passionate about cross-cultural engagement and student ministry? If so, we would love for you to consider joining our team.

My Experience: I Joined Friends International Last Year
Our students come from all over the globe, and sometimes have governments who are unfriendly to the gospel. I spend time researching the religious makeup of their countries so I can communicate safely with them when they return.
I am amazed by the experience and the resources of Friends International as an organisation. There is so much wisdom to draw on, and so many incredible ideas for outreach and discipleship here.
I think if anyone has an interest in international student work, they couldn’t find a better group of people to work alongside!”
FAQ - Joining Friends International

What key skills are needed to be considered for a job at Friends International?
It is important for our staff to have a passion for student ministry and cross-cultural evangelism and to be servant hearted. In terms of what’s on a CV, we consider it important for candidates to have a university degree so that there is an understanding of what it’s like to be a university student, and experience or qualifications in mission or theology. If someone is interested in applying for a job what should they do? They should email their CV (résumé) to our recruitment email address ([email protected] friendsinternational.uk), with a cover letter or email to explain which position they are interested in, what attracts them to it, and what skills and experience they can bring to the role.
What’s the process after you receive an email like this?
When I receive an email from a candidate, I share their paperwork with the recruiting team. Next, often someone will contact them to have an informal chat to find out a little more about them, and so that they can learn more about the role. If that conversation is positive, we would then ask them to complete an application form.
