Self-Reliant Groups logo

Are you rooted in a community in Greater Manchester?

Do you have contact with groups and individuals who are engaged in their community and or have shared interests?

Do you want to be involved in a new approach to working with groups and individuals to develop self-reliance?

Self-Reliant Groups may be the way forward for you...

We are looking for a number of freelance group workers who can contact and develop groups in the local community.

Contracts are available for up to two years for one or two days each week at £100 per day, across Greater Manchester, as a self-employed worker.

What we need from you

  • Ability to contact or develop small groups of people who can become Self-Reliant Groups
  • Ability to take on the ‘self-reliance’ concept and inspire others with the SRG way of working
  • Experience of developing and nurturing groups and their aspirations
  • Ability to encourage and develop a group to a point where they no longer need any outside help
  • Ability to be innovative, think like an entrepreneur and help a group develop their ideas

What you can expect from us

  • Training in the role including a two-day course and shadowing an existing worker
  • The opportunity to join a vibrant and creative team of other SRG facilitators
  • Ongoing mentoring by our SRG Coordinator
  • Opportunity for further self-development by taking responsibility for promoting the SRG movement, e.g. organising events, presentations, media work
  • Opportunity to visit partner organisations’ peer gatherings in Glasgow and Cardiff

Apply with a brief CV and a covering letter of no more than one side of A4 telling us how you could contact and work with groups in your community. Send to: joyce@church-poverty.org.uk
