We are looking for a Director!


Permanent, Full-time

This is an exciting time to be joining us. Despite the challenges and impact that Covid brought, GT Wales has come out the other side stronger, delivering support and advice to more Gypsies and Travellers than ever before. We are looking to continue this success and ensure that all Gypsies and Travellers across Wales can access good quality advice and support whilst building a movement that challenges discrimination and influencing real change in Wales for Gypsies and Travellers.

Our new Director will join a passionate, capable, and motivated staff, and an engaged Board ready to work together to deliver on our mission. Your track record in advice, human rights, social welfare or related sectors will ensure that you can bring the insight and nuance necessary for this role.

We are looking for:

      • an inspiring leader and ambassador who is inclusive and empowering.
      • a dynamic leader who makes things happen, and also takes time to listen with empathy.
      • someone who sets high standards, and supports, nurtures, and inspires people to get there.

You’ll need excellent communication skills, experience in budget setting and control, strong IT skills and the ability to be flexible, problem-solve and adapt quickly in a pressurised and changing environment.

If you share our passion, and this sounds like the kind of challenge that motivates you, we would love to hear from you.

We especially encourage applications from Romani, Gypsy and Travelling people, racially minoritised people, and people who have experienced other exclusion or marginalisation.

This role will require completion of a DBS in addition to the standard pre-employment checks.
