Work for Warwickshire Pride

 

LGBT+ Women's Fitness and Wellbeing Club Facilitator - APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED

Working for Warwickshire Pride is an incredibly rewarding experience that will enable you to make a difference to the lives of LGBT+ people, as well as developing your skills. We are currently seeking a facilitator for our new LGBT+ women's fitness and wellbeing club that is is due to start in January 2022.

This is a 16 week contract. The successful applicant will be responsible for running a weekly fitness and wellbeing club for LGBT+ women. The club will run in Leamington Spa one evening per week between 6:00pm - 8:00pm. It will involve fitness activities such as running and walking, alongside socialising and enabling LGBT+ women to meet others, have conversations and make friends. The exact format will be determined by you, with support from a line manager at Warwickshire Pride, although it is anticipated that it will be very much like a 'walk and talk' or 'run and talk' club. We are open minded about which evening the club takes place, as long as it is a Monday - Thursday.

The club is all about helping LGBT+ women to feel and be fitter and healthier in a supportive, social environment. You will play a key part in helping people to achieve that, alongside a team of volunteers who you will manage and motivate.

Person specification:

  • You must be a woman to apply for this role. It is a club run by women, for women. We wish to make it clear that trans women are women and that non-binary people who feel this is for them are also welcome to apply.

  • Ideally you will be LGBT+, although this is not essential.

  • An understanding of the issues affecting LGBT+ women is a requirement.

  • You need to be open minded, enthusiastic and able to motivate people.

  • Patience and tact are also key requirements.

  • Ideally you will have a fitness and/or coaching qualification, or at least experience and skills in those areas.

Contract dates:

The contract will begin on the first week of January and run for 16 weeks.

Payment for this role:

This 16 week contract will pay £800 on a self-employed basis. That is £50 per session (£25 per hour). Travel and other out of pocket expenses will also be covered in line with Warwickshire Pride's expenses policy.

Application process:

Please complete the application form below. You will then be contacted to arrange attending an interview via Zoom to further assess your suitability for this role. The deadline for applying for this role is midday on Wednesday 8th December.
