For Professionals

How can your professional skills further the renewal of the world?

Though we are a movement primarily for university students, the professionalism, skill and experience of individuals already established in a career is a needed benefit, particularly in our National Headquarters in Ottawa.

Perhaps you are already working but looking to use your skill set for the Church. Maybe you are not experiencing the fulfillment you thought you would in your current career and are longing for purpose and meaning in your work. Perhaps you are retired from your career and are ready and able to give your time and talent in a mission setting. Regardless of what led you here, your unique work experience is needed to further the fulfillment of the Great Commission. There are many opportunities in our different departments, such as Finance, Development, Human Resources, Media, and Marketing.

Join a group of dynamic people working together to fulfill the Great Commission. Our headquarters is like a mission launch pad. The work we do here is vital to the success of our mission on university campuses and in parishes.

Support Raising

Each CCO missionary has the privilege of completely relying on God’s providence. Our missionaries develop their own team of financial and prayer supporters who contribute directly to the funds for their salary. We call this Support Team Partnership Development or support raising.

Support raising may seem daunting. However, each of our over 100 missionaries, as well as our more than 30 years of CCO history, are living witnesses to the fact that it is possible.

CCO has an excellent support-raising training program that teaches you not only how to raise funds effectively but also instills the key attitudes and mindsets that drive our paradigm of living by providence. This training takes place after you have been hired, in preparation for you to begin your role in CCO, and includes weekly coaching sessions with a support-raising coach throughout your fundraising.  

As a CCO missionary, our Support Team Partnership Development (STPD) is not a means to an end. It is an opportunity to take the gospel to other people. Every person you encounter will have an opportunity to hear the Lord’s message through your witness of relying on His providence and being abandoned to Him. We feel called to have every single person encounter Jesus in a personal way. Our mission field is not only on campuses and through our parish and diocesan coaching relationships, but also in every visit we have with a potential supporter.

As you make the leap into support raising, CCO wants to set you up for success. That is why we also have various bridge-funding options to make the transition as smooth as possible and tailored to your own situation and needs. 

There are many legitimate reasons someone would choose not to apply for staff, and we work hard to ensure support raising isn’t one of them.

CCO is a recognized leader in organizational culture recognized in the Catholic sphere.
