Sight Loss Council Coordinator

Contract: Fixed term 6 months, full time

Location: Home based with some travel in the North West region

£21,500 – £31,500 per annum depending on experience

Closing date for applications:  12 December at midday

 

This is a new role within the team to support the Engagement Manager (EM) for the North West. It’s an exciting role which will be working on establishing a third Sight Loss Council (SLC) in the region, through a six-month pilot programme.  This will include testing out new ways of working with the SLC volunteers, developing new models of practice and establishing clear roles and responsibilities between the EM and the Coordinator posts.

The work of our Sight Loss Councils is driven by three key priority areas:

  • Employment and skills
  • Health and well-being
  • Inclusive Communities

Challenges in accessing services under these areas continue to profoundly affect blind and partially sighted people in the UK.

We currently have 12 Sight Loss Councils across England, with plans to grow this reach even further, but in order to support this growth, we need to grow our team and infrastructure.

The successful candidate will have experience of working with volunteers with a visual impairment or additional needs. They will have proven experience of developing and delivering social action projects and have supported with planning and delivering events. The ability to work collaboratively with other organisations to achieve their goals is key.

This role is primarily home based but as this post will be working as part of a pilot project, there is a duty to be flexible in the approach to work duties; the post holder will be required to travel to meetings at various locations within the North West and occasionally to London.
