Pause Co-ordinators are key to the successful functioning of Pause Practices. They manage a wide and varied range of tasks, from the design and implementation of finance, data and performance monitoring systems, to event organising and high-level strategic management support. They are front facing and the main point of contact for professionals, women and others in their system. This means they need to demonstrate excellent interpersonal and communication skills at all levels, as well as having a depth of understanding around the needs of the women and their presenting issues.
The importance of this role cannot be underestimated and it is not unusual for Pause Co-ordinators to have experience of direct work with vulnerable people, as well as significant experience of working in the public and voluntary sectors.
