Working in an environment where work is seen as worship, you will join a team of professionals who minister through their day-to-day work, pray together daily, and use the Bible as a foundation for business and career development.
As a ‘workplace minister’, you will put your faith into action in a business ministry while you apply world-class professional skills to develop insights. You should have a personal commitment to the Christian faith and be actively involved in a church congregation.
You will be enrolled in a comprehensive ministry development programme which includes:

A comprehensive reading list of books written by leading practitioners and theologians.
A marketplace ministry peer mentoring programme in which colleagues support each other in their ministry growth.
You will proactively seek to understand the client’s business, personal and corporate needs, and you will use discernment from the Holy Spirit as you carry out work assignments. You will need to use the fruits and the gifts of the Spirit in your work.
Sales as ministry
The business operates a ‘sales-as-ministry’ model in which every team member plays a role in blessing current or potential clients through outreach and engagement. To support this, you will be enrolled in a cross-functional team with a focus on prayer-led outreach to individuals in relevant roles and organisations. Training in sales-as-ministry will be provided.
Your role as a Insights Data Analyst
As a Social Media Analyst, you will carry out market research for some of the world’s largest healthcare organisations, using cutting edge technologies to analyse data and develop unique insights.
While working collaboratively with your colleagues, you will use a proven methodology for developing insights aligned with clients’ business needs. You will conduct research using a range of technologies; extract, analyse and present intelligence insights from data; and enable clients to act on what you discover.
Tangible outcomes of your work will include contributing to the production of comprehensive insights reports and the presentation of research, both to client teams and elsewhere, where your work can make a positive impact on health systems and ultimately on nations.
Practically, your day to day work may include (but is not limited to) the following:
Use a range of platforms and methodologies to analyse and visualise data, and develop client-ready reports, working alongside other team members.
Dedicate time to praying for clients, other external stakeholders and colleagues.
Take part in workshops with clients, to understand their business needs in order to inform your work in research and innovation.
Develop your knowledge of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry, and of the industry’s marketing, communications and market research practices, so that you can understand clients’ challenges and opportunities.
Develop ideas for, and take part in, innovative research projects designed to prove new technologies or methodologies, or contribute to health systems.
Challenge other team members to also innovate and develop ideas for improving our work.
Prayerfully take part in client engagement as part of a cross-functional outreach team.
Collaborate with your colleagues to support the overall success of the team, who will also support you in your success.
You may also use a wide range of your skills and experience to serve the business ministry’s objectives. This may include working on other areas of the business according to your skills and passions.
