About this opportunity

Are you interested in leading a monthly discussion group for men? Do you like engaging with ideas? Do you like meeting new people?

The Tough Guy Book Club is looking for men interested in hosting a monthly chapter of our club.

You must be reliable, have good communication habits and a willingness to engage with new people. You do NOT need to be a big reader or have a wide understanding of literature.

Our club is open to all men over the age of 18 and aims to use classic and contemporary fiction as a starting point to foster discussion around a broad range of topics, from history to masculinity to pop culture, and anything else that is raised by month’s book.

The key aim of these meetings is to have a healthy and interesting conversation, not to see who has the best opinion on the current book. Your role will be to facilitate this aim, which means encouraging new or quiet guys to participate and diffusing any over-talkative or disrespectful behaviour.

It is essential that you are available on the first Wednesday night of each month, when our meetings take place across the country, from 7pm for approximately 3-4 hours. It is also expected that you will spend 1-2 hours across the month promoting the event and communicating with the club’s coordinating team.
