This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a growing service dedicated to transforming the lives of people affected by spinal cord injury. We know the benefits of working or volunteering for people with spinal cord injury are massive. Back Up believe that a spinal cord injury should not be a barrier when it comes to employment and volunteering.
What does the role involve?
By taking on this role, you will be in charge of delivering Back Up’s vocational service. You will be tasked with delivering our Back to Work course. Working closely with the Services Development Manager you will develop the Early Intervention Vocational Rehab (EiVR) model and influence practice at specialist hospitals across the country, working with professionals to develop and influence their way of working. You will also take a lead in developing an online toolkit, allowing users to access further information and resources.
Is Back Up a good place to work?
Back Up not only does great work, it also has a great culture. There are no silos – something reinforced by the charity’s size, a one-team ethos, socialising together and hot-desking. Back Up runs anonymous staff morale surveys and we consistently score well above the sector average on every question. Colleagues are professional, approachable, supportive and warm. You will work in a successful team at a leading charity with an international reputation in its field, working very close to the cause. Fun is one of our core values and it comes through in our work. There are sometimes friendly dogs in the office and a cake or two to enjoy!
Where are you based?
We have a staff team of over 30 working in our Wandsworth office. The vocation coordinator role will be primarily based here.
