Job description

Role: To provide support to an allocated number of groups and branches

This is an exciting opportunity to join the UK’s leading charity working to improve life after brain injury.

Headway is the UK-wide charity that supports people affected by brain injury. Through a range of frontline services run from its Nottingham base and working with our network of more than 120 groups and branches across the UK, it provides support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to health professionals.

We are looking to appoint a Network Support Co-ordinator based in London to support Headway groups and branches and help them provide high-quality rehabilitation and support services to individuals, families and carers affected by brain injury.

Reporting to a Network Support Manager, your role will also involve helping groups and branches develop their services, while supporting those under threat from a lack of funding, resources or leadership.

To meet the demands of this challenging yet rewarding role, you will need to be committed, enthusiastic, flexible, and have a passion for making a difference. A working knowledge and understanding of brain injury would be preferable but not essential, as long as you can demonstrate a desire to learn about its complexities and consequences.

We are looking for confident self-starters who have previous voluntary sector experience or who have an interest in working within a health or social care environment.

If you are interested in furthering your career and improving life after brain injury, we would like to hear from you.

Headway – the brain injury association is an equal opportunities employer.

Closing date for applications: Sunday 16th February 2020

Interviews will be held:  Wednesday 26th & Thursday 27th February 2020
