WANTED: Teacher to change the world!

Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS) seeks a qualified teacher to be the face of ALWS in Lutheran schools and congregations in South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. As the overseas aid and development agency of the Lutheran Church of Australia, a key strategic goal of ALWS is to inspire and enable the Lutheran family to reach out in love for justice. 

You will be passionate about social justice, have a strong understanding of development, and committed to sharing how helping others through ALWS is a practical way to live out Christian faith.

You will work with a team of professionals across Australia, and must have the discipline to operate effectively working remotely.

ALWS is a child safe organisation and requires personnel to undertake regular working with children and criminal record checks, and to sign and abide by the ALWS Code of Conduct (accessible on the ALWS website).  This permanent position will commence from 13 January 2020, starting at 0.6 FTE with potential to grow.
