Wycliffe Bible Translators are looking to recruit a Director for Church Engagement to join our team in High Wycombe. This page contains all the information you need to apply for this role.

While Wycliffe is well known in some circles, there are others where it is not yet known and the task of Bible translation has been assumed to have been completed many years ago. We love to introduce churches and individuals to the unfinished task and see fruit grow from these relationships.

The Director for Church Engagement is responsible for enabling an increasing number of people and churches in UK and Ireland to participate in making God’s word available to all people. This is achieved through leading a team of employees, members and volunteers (currently 17 people, about 9 full time equivalents, based across the UK), and through collaboration with other staff teams.

This role requires someone motivated by their Christian faith with a deep personal concern for world mission to serve in this unique role with Wycliffe, bringing clarity, influence, passion and a collaborative style to leadership.


We hope that you will find the information in the attached documents below helpful and clear. If Wycliffe’s vision is a cause you can champion and the position fits with your skills, values and experience, then we would love to hear from you.

If an informal conversation about the role would help, please email the resourcing team at resourcing@wycliffe.org.uk to arrange one.

Your application should include:

  • A covering letter, of no more than two pages in total, summarising your reasons for applying and explaining your ability to fulfil the Aims of the Role and meet the Person Specification.
  • A completed Candidate Information Form.
  • A full CV, including educational qualifications and full employment history, with a particular focus on experience and skills relevant to this role.

Your application should be sent to the resourcing team at (resourcing@wycliffe.org.uk) by 9am on Monday 25th February. All applications will be treated as confidential.

Should you be shortlisted we will invite you for an interview at the offices of Wycliffe Bible Translators in central High Wycombe.

Thank you for considering this role and please join us in prayer as we seek God’s wisdom in appointing the right candidate for this post.
