Longer Term | Lamb
EXPATRIATE VACANCIES – LONG TERM POSITIONS
Long term positions are for one year or more. We also have opportunities for short term volunteers. We have families, couples, and singles, and a variety of nationalities from four continents.
Sending by a church or Christian mission organization is a requirement. Normally, although there are exceptions, long term expatriate staff will do language study prior to joining, the length of time depending on the expected length of service at LAMB.
Long Term expatriate staff are seconded by organisations from their home countries. Each seconding agency has an agreement with LAMB and the details may vary. However, in general expatriate staff are self-supporting and do not receive a salary from LAMB. LAMB provides administrative support to obtain visas, work permits, professional registration etc and with finding local accommodation. LAMB can also help with language study and cultural orientation where this is not provided by the seconding agency.
