Partnership Options

The Mission Matching Service (MMS) provides an initial interface between enquirers and agencies where enquirers can easily investigate a wide range of mission opportunities, and agencies can search for potential recruits. Together with the associated Top Needs and Teams pages, where Partners can list some of their opportunities, people who are serious about mission but uncertain about a destination or ministry opportunities can explore their options because information from many diverse agencies is available in one place to help them make decisions.

Three levels of agency partnership are available because each agency is unique and recruits differently, and the different package options have been designed to suit their differing practices. The options, which are summarised in the table below, are:

  • Full
  • Limited
  • Basic

A Mission Matching facility is available for use by both individual enquirers and Full and Limited partner agencies. These partners can enter an “agency profile” and their recruitment criteria. Enquirers can enter their “personal profile” and check out their resulting matches with the partner agencies.

 Full Partners have full access to the Mission Matching facility and Enquirer Database in order to be very proactive about searching for and contacting possible recruits. They can take the initiative to contact enquirers.

 Limited Partners have their detailed information displayed to enquirers but cannot themselves access the full Mission Matching facility or Enquirer Database – they can view some limited Enquirer details but generally must rely on Enquirers taking the initiative to contact them.

 Basic Partners have only a brief description and contact details displayed, but no organisational profile and also cannot access the Mission Matching facility or Enquirer Database.

Two other features, available to all levels, are the Top Needs and the Short Term Teams facilities. Partners may enter up to 5 each of their Top Opportunities and Teams for viewing by Enquirers, whether or not they lodge a profile.

Comprehensive details of each of the three partnership types are available in the Partnership Packages (Full, Limited and Basic) which can be viewed or downloaded from the SWN website (http://www.secondwind.net.au/partners/ ) or requested from [email protected].

The MMS will continue to be hosted on the SWN site for a trial period from July 2015 to June 2016.
