Description

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is a unique organisation using aircraft to deliver help and hope across the developing world. MAF transport 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. We operate in over 30 countries with over 130 planes.

Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. It is also one of the most rural, as only 18 per cent of its people live in urban centres and the rest live in very remote areas with no option of transport being available due to the tough terrain. In locations such as PNG, we require good IT services and infrastructure to operate safely and effectively.

To help implement and develop good IT services and infrastructure we are looking for an IT Manager to join our PNG programme. Our IT function covers a wide portfolio from programme development to customer support.
