Job description

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’re looking to appoint a Network Support Manager in Northern Ireland to manages a series of support networks. You will support the Headway branch network and manage services across the acquired brain injury networks providing high-quality rehabilitation and support services to individuals, families and carers affected by brain injury. You will also manage a small team of regional service coordinators, counsellors and volunteers.

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. However, comprehensive experience of working within disability and health and social care would be advantageous.

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: Midnight, Wednesday 26th February 2020
