Sometimes our posts are restricted to women applicants only under the Equality Act. A central part of the GFS approach is to provide single-gender spaces. This will be highlighted on the role description where appropriate.
As part of our growth plan, GFS is undergoing an exciting change in the way we manage our service delivery. We have big plans to develop clusters of groups in targeted areas of England and Wales, to ensure we are best placed to meet the needs of girls and young women.
As part of this change we are looking to recruit group coordinators to both new and existing GFS locations. Successful candidates will coordinate a local GFS group and gain experience in managing a team of volunteers and supporting the growth of GFS in the local area.
Due to the nature of the role this post is restricted to female applicants only under the Equality Act.
