Reservations Officer – Mission Experience Placement, Arnhem Land

Missions Experience Placement – 12 months paid role

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is an organisation using light aircraft to deliver help and hope in Jesus’ name in over 30 developing countries. For more than 75 years, MAF has been transporting patients, relief workers, produce and medical supplies to the world’s remotest regions and places of deepest human need – places where flying is not a luxury but a lifeline.

One of these places is Arnhem Land, a historical region of the Northern Territory of Australia. It is also a vast wilderness area, defined by rocky escarpments, gorges, rivers and waterfalls.

MAF has served the people of Arnhem Land for over 45 years by sharing God’s love through aviation and technology. In Arnhem Land, MAF operates 8 aircraft to over 60 different airstrips throughout this region. MAF delivers basic supplies, enables education, health care and development, and supports the local community throughout the region through professional Aviation services.

Currently, we are offering two 12-month mission experience placement potions with our Reservations team for interested candidates contemplating a career in missions.
