GMCVO works to drive economic and social inclusion in Greater Manchester.

  • You can work flexible hours – as well as offering flexible working hours, we are willing to negotiate reduced and flexible hours where needed and where possible. As a carer friendly organisation we adapt our work to support colleagues with care responsibilities

  • You can have flexibility in work location – negotiate how much you use our offices (close to Piccadilly Rail Station) or work from home.  We support agreed home working with the necessary IT, and furniture etc if needed

  • You will be valued - Our Employee Representation Group plays a critical role in developing our practice and ensuring wellbeing is at the heart of our work

  • You will be supported - As well as support from your Line Manager, we also encourage staff to support one another, both within and across teams

  • You will have social interaction with like minded people - staff 'away' days, informal wellbeing drop ins and other social events are part of working here
