Full time position.

The Business

The Gideons International in Australia (TGIA) is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through associating together for service, sharing personal testimony, and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While we are often recognized for our work with hotels, we also place and distribute Scriptures in strategic locations so they are available to those who want them, as well as to those who may not know they need them. We aspire to be an extension of the mission of the local church.

  • Managing payments and communications from members and strategic partners
  • Liaising with financial supporters
  • Maintaining Association ledgers and daily financial transactions
  • Creating financial documents (such as bills, invoices, pay-orders, receivables and purchase orders)
  • Reconciling bank statements by comparing transactions to the general ledger

We are looking for a motivated individual who is confident juggling multiple tasks and working within a ministry office environment.

An ability to understand and interpret financial source documents, financial reports and management reports is essential.

As the successful candidate you will have:

  • A strong and vibrant Christian faith
  • Tertiary qualification in accounting (Diploma in accounting)
  • Excellent computer skills (i.e. Excel and Accounting Software)
  • Bookkeeping Skills in preparing and maintaining accurate accounts documents
  • Ability to complete tasks while maintaining all confidentiality requirements 


Specific Requirements:

  • Competent in MS Office and Accounting Software (preferably NetSuite)
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Excellent organisational skills and attention to detail
  • Working in a team environment
  • At least one years’ experience in similar role

An understanding of Christian NFP environment and voluntary ministry would be an advantage. Where specific skills, qualifications or experience are lacking, an expression of willingness and desire to grow in those areas will be essential.

The successful applicant can begin work immediately.

We will consider applications as they are submitted. Please include two (2) character referees and two (2) professional referees in your application.
