The Regional Co-ordinator (RC) is a leadership role within GAP that requires effective communication, organisation and the ability to work with a wide range of people, primarily our wonderful volunteers.   They must help source, train and support the Area Co-ordinators who organise the many events GAP runs to encourage new adopters.

The RC liaises with the Area Co-ordinators, contacts new adopters and introduces them to the local GAP community.  Encouraging new adopters to participate in GAP community and promotional events is an important aspect of this role.

The person must be passionate about GAP and the greyhounds we work to rehome.  Applicants are expected to be a GAP owner and with volunteer experience at GAP events.  Our preference is for a location in or close to Christchurch.
