“If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together.” - African Proverb

At Loom, we place the highest value on people, knowing that a group of inspired individuals with a clear vision and strategy can make real, long-lasting impact. Our focus is working as a team and we love when new people bring fresh life and energy to our group. You may just be one of those people. Interested? There are three ways to work with Loom:

Culture

Loom promotes a culture that encourages personal growth and work effectiveness. As a Learning Organization, we believe that as we learn together, we become more of who we are meant to be, individually and as an organization.

Numbers

The Loom home office currently comprises 14 staff and an alternating number of interns. Our office rarely looks the same from day to day. A few of the team will be out visiting a project somewhere in the world, some may be running training courses in any number of locations while others work remotely. We love the innovation that these ever-changing situations provide and at the same value connection, community and maintaining togetherness at our core.

Salaries/Benefits

From the Executive Director to the newest staff member, each Loom staff is responsible for building a team of individuals and churches who work together to finance their salary and benefits. For questions about this or more information, please contact: people@loominternational.org.
