Your growth as a disciple of Jesus will be prioritised with the provision of valuable spiritual input through mentoring and biblical teaching sessions, in order to support you in understanding how to truly serve God through your work.

Graduates will work alongside experienced members of the team, working on developing a new platform to support the business.
