Job Description

Can you imagine a world without Amazon Prime? Your skills in management and power tools can even impact eternity in places where free 2-day shipping doesn’t exist!

Many Bible translation projects happen in remote areas with limited access to supplies. As the Sea Freight Shipping Coordinator, you will manage shipments coming and going from around the world, enabling Bible translation to continue!

Today, over 2000 people groups, 150 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Every day is different! You would serve as the primary expert for all exporting and importing needs. One day you might get quotes, authorize invoices, and compile expense summaries. Later you could advise on various regulations, including dangerous goods, vehicle export, and aircraft.

This job might be for you if…

  • You’re a good communicator and love relating to people.
  • You’ve earned at least a high school diploma or equivalent schooling.
  • You thrived for several years in a supervisory role and have basic management skills.
  • You’re competent with Microsoft and Google programs.

It’s a bonus if…

  • You’ve had at least 2 years of post high school or technical school training.
  • You’ve earned a forklift certification.
