Job Vacancies

GMWRAG has periodically advertised posts on behalf of our members in the past but we thought it would be useful to set this up as a permanent page rather than the individual posts we’ve done in the past. The advice sector is contracting at present but keep looking and we’re sure that from time to time you’ll spot things appearing here.

GMWRAG does not formally charge for job adverts but we invite donations of £50 if you would like to place an advert.

Please note that if you advertise a post here we will be able to advise on the number of views your page had. If you provide us with documents for people to download from this site and not just your own e.g. application packs, then we will also be able to give you an idea of how many times people went on to download them.

New vacancies are announced by an update to this page; and a post on the main page of the site. If you subscribe to the site (which requires no more than your email address) then you will receive an automatically generated email every time there is a new post on the site. This requires no more than your email address.
