Job searchingChristian Jobs, Opportunities and Vacancies

Recent research confirmed that OSCAR is the UK's most visited Christian jobs website with over 20,000 users per month viewing around 100,000 pages. Users spend, on average, 5 minutes per visit.

In addition to those who browse our website, every Friday around 700 enquirers are emailed all the newly submitted online opportunities for that week. Most of these have asked to receive it as they are actively looking for opportunities in Christian work, short-term or long-term. Many of these have signed up at one of the major Christian events where we host job boards (see exhibitions). Notification of our new jobs also gets emailed monthly to around 2000 people on our general email list.

We have partnerships with several other recruitment and mission websites to help promote these opportunities. These include a number of online job aggregate sites from time to time. We Tweet notifications of opportunities to our 1500 OSCAR Twitter followers and post notifications to over 800 followers on Facebook. We also regularly sponsor selected adverts on social media (i.e. Facebook ads) and Indeed (the world's biggest job aggregator, for UK based salaried positions) for maximum exposure.

We had over 2500 opportunities submitted to our site during 2017 from around 100 Christian organisations and churches. Many of our opportunities received over 1000 page views each during the year! Don't just take our word for it ... see what our clients say after advertising with us.

Our website is fully mobile and tablet friendly. Recent developments to our system means that these opportunities are now searchable by Finance, Duration, Activity, Organisation & Location as well as using any keywords. Each listing gets its own page making them very Google friendly. The organisation's logo is included in both the search returns and your opportunity listing as standard, as are unlimited words in the description.

All this we do as standard, so you don't need to pay 'premium' prices for a premium quality service. Our low costs do not directly reflect the high value of what you're getting when you advertise with us compared to other job websites. We provide this as an affordable service to all who want to further the Kingdom and we desire to make it as accessible as possible to all Christian organisations and churches, large and small.

The cost on our Pay-As-You-Go system for each opportunity listing is detailed in the table below. These charges (see below) are for a 3 month (90 day) listing. Just contact us with your requirements for occasional listings or check out our packages for deals about advertising throughout the year.


From 1st Jan 2018

Nature of Listing * Cost
Salaried £60
Personal Support £40
Voluntary £20

* Salaried: where there is a net payment from the organisation to the individual (without the need for the individual to raise this), even if it is insufficient to cover all the costs involved.
* Personal Support: where the candidate is required to raise some or all of their one-off, outgoing or ongoing costs.
* Voluntary: where the role can be undertaken without any payment or need to raise financial support for one-off, outgoing or ongoing costs (personal or ministry). Usually only applies to UK based roles, as overseas roles normally require the individual to raise at least their own travel costs.

Note: Opportunities that fit into more than one of these categories will be charged at the higher rate i.e. part salaried/part support roles.

With each of the following packages, you get your own account and can update your own information on the OSCAR website. This means that your details can be accessed and changed by you whenever and as often as you like, giving you complete control of your content on the OSCAR website.

If you're interested in one of these packages, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page.

Bronze Package (FREE)

Basic Listing

You will be able to add/update your listing in our online directory through your account. This includes your organisation name, a brief summary about you and your contact details. With many mission enquirers and overseas workers coming through OSCAR, it is important to keep the information in your basic listing on the OSCAR website up-to-date. Alternatively, you can update your info by email to or by using the online form at www.oscar.org.uk/about/suggestlisting.htm .
So far we have had 5 people contact either through seeing the advert on a stand or on your website - 2 of those have started volunteering…!
Matt Rich, Groundwire

Individual jobs/opportunities can be submitted directly through your account and are charged at the 'Pay-As-You-Go' rate detailed above.

* Generally, only mission organisations with a UK office or representative are included in the mission organisations directory.

Silver Package (£50)

In addition to Bronze package benefits, you also get ...

Enhanced Listing

Any listings you have in our directories will be enhanced, which means highlighted with a larger title. At the end of your summary text we also provide a 'more' link through to your Profile page (see below).

Profile Page

This is a page hosted within the OSCAR website which provides you with a dedicated page for your organisation or church. Unlike the basic listing you have in one of the main directories on the OSCAR website, here you can include as much text as you like to inform visitors about your work. There is also a direct link to your Profile Page from your basic listing (which also gets highlighted).

With OSCARís high search engine ranking, having a Profile Page is a significant way through which you can raise your own organisationís online profile and website ranking. This is a page purely for your organisation but optimised by us for the search engines. Many of the Profile Pages have achieved top 10 placings over the years with search engines*.

This Profile Page will include:

  • Organisation/church name
  • Organisation/church details (determined by you, as much or as little as you want)
  • Logo and/or text links to your website
  • A list of your job opportunities hosted with OSCAR
  • * We cannot guarantee any particular placing with search returns as these are determined by the search engines and change frequently

    Gold Package (see fees table below)

    In addition to Silver package benefits, you also get ...

    Unlimited Job Opportunities

    This package provides all that the Bronze and Silver packages offer PLUS the facility for you to add as many job opportunity listings during the year as you want. These can include short term, medium term (gap year) and long term overseas opportunities as well as UK based jobs with your organisation or church. A list of all of your current opportunity listings will appear on your Profile Page. Opportunity listings will need to be updated every 3 months (90 days) but with this package there is no charge for doing this and you can do it yourself through your account whenever you like.

    **Also for 2018: we are including one free job card at all exhibition events for those who have paid for a Gold package (worth around £150!).**

    Other benefits

    We also offer the following:

    • Discounted Job Cards at major Christian Events: Advertising your job opportunities online with us entitles you to a discount for advertising them at many of the UK's major Christian exhibitions that OSCAR is involved in (including Big Church Day Out, New Wine etc.).
    • Re-advertise at no extra cost: If you don't appoint after the closing date and it's less than 90 days since your original advert went online, you may re-advertise the same position for FREE! Just ask us if this is the case and we'll re-activate your listing.
    • Put your job opportunities on your own website: Once you have submitted your opportunity listings, we can provide you with an RSS feed to an automatically updated list of your jobs that you can host on your own website. If you already have opportunity listings on our system, you can find your code at login to your account, click on 'Edit my details' and look directly under your organisation's name where it says 'Your vacancies RSS feed URL:'. That's followed by your code specific to your organisation. You can paste this into any web page or reader to get your automatically updated list.
    • Publicising your events: Your events can go on OSCAR's master events list! Gold and Silver members can have all of their open events advertised on OSCAR. These not only go on the main OSCAR website events list, but upcoming event details also get emailed to around 2000 individual subscribers in our monthly OSCAR Update. To add your events, sign up to OSCARactive and submit them to the OSCARactive events list. We will then do the rest.
    • Retweeting your Tweets: If you have a Twitter account, we are happy to retweet any of your information tweets to our 1500 followers. This includes tweets about opportunities or events, as well as any news that you would like to 'get out there'. Just ask us to follow you and we will do the rest. You can always remind us by sending a direct message through Twitter too.
