We’ve been expanding rapidly and are looking for a Deputy Manager to support our finance and management processes, and an Education Officer to help take forward our work with school, colleges and the public. We are very grateful to the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) who are funding these posts through the Third Sector Resilience Fund for Wales Phase 2 Scheme.”
