Coventry's Tools With A Mission looking for new centre manager so it can expand its services

A COVENTRY charity is searching for a new centre manager so it can expand its operation and help more people.

Tools with a Mission (TWAM) works mainly in sub-Saharan Africa, collecting usable donated tools across the UK, refurbishing them and sending them as trade kits to the developing world for livelihood creation.

Currently TWAM’s Coventry refurbishment centre specialises in making up carpentry kits and refurbishing sewing machines but it is planning a move to larger premises in Binley in the near future.

The new manager will oversee the transition from a small workshop to a large refurbishment centre capable of doubling the output of TWAM. The aim for the new centre is to prepare every toolkit TWAM offers and dispatch 16 containers-a-year within three years.

The charity has advertised for a new centre manager but has had a dearth of suitable applicants.

TWAM Chief Executive Mike Griffin said: “The successful candidate will be the first full-time manager employed by us in Coventry and will be integral to our expansion.

“Initially the role will be in our current small Refurbishment Centre in Binley, managing a small, but expanding, team of volunteers.

“The current centre works out of two small industrial units and operates one of TWAM’s five vans and has been opening three days a week for many years. “

For more information, call Mike Griffin on 01473 210220 or email orgo to for more details on the charity.
