Job description

Do you want to work somewhere where you can make a positive impact every day? Then look no further.

At Back Up, we have big ambitions. Over the next few years, we’re going to be transforming the lives of even more people affected by spinal cord injury.

Do you want to play an integral part in our journey as our next Courses Coordinator?

About the role:

Working as part of the services team, you’ll be a key player in how we develop and deliver our impactful courses.

All of our courses aim to increase confidence and independence in a supportive environment. They’re also led by people who have a spinal cord injury themselves – allowing participants to learn from others who have who have been there and can understand the issues and challenges. They quite literally transform lives.

With your organisational skills and desire to make a positive impact, you’ll play a vital role in helping us realise our vision of a world where people affected by spinal cord injury can reach their full potential.

Day-to-day, you’ll be working with volunteers, partners and participants to make sure our courses are a success and deliver the best possible experience to everyone involved.

About you:

You’ll be a confident communicator with excellent organisational skills in person, in writing and on the telephone. You’ll enjoy planning and delivering work to see things through; be that independently or as part of a wider team.

Lived experience is an advantage; but most important is your sharing our commitment to transform the lives of everyone affected by spinal cord injury.
