HR Officer, Cairns

Mission Aviation Fellowship is an international Christian organisation whose mission is to fly light aircraft, and to use other technologies to bring help and hope to people in some of the world’s poorest communities. Every four minutes a MAF aircraft is taking off or landing somewhere in the world to assist missions, churches, aid and development agencies, and other local groups to transform lives and share the love of God. We operate in over 30 countries with over 130 aircraft.

Being a global organisation, sometimes working in very remote locations can be challenging and our Human Resource department is key in providing support, guidance and care to all our staff.

We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Human Resources (HR) professional with proven experience to support the HR Manager and other senior managers in the Asia Pacific region. Reporting directly to the HR Manager and, working closely with colleagues in the HR team, you will be required to deliver an effective and efficient HR service. You will also provide HR advice and guidance on all aspects of people management.

The HR Officer role will be based in our Cairns support office. This role requires international travel.
