An exciting opportunity, helping to transform the lives of people with learning disabilities. We are growing rapidly and are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and suitably qualified person to join our team.
Set up and run by award-winning local charity Ilkley Community Enterprise Ltd, Outside the Box (OTB) provides a range of services and activities all designed to enable and support people with a learning disability to lead more independent, fulfilled and healthier lives. These include OTB community café, OTB Choices and OTB Works; these services currently support around 60 people with learning disabilities (our members) each week.
As a charity we are relatively small but have expanded rapidly over recent years and have an ambitious plan for further growth and development in the future. We are due to relocate OTB café to substantially larger premises and this will drive and support increased scale and depth of the services we provide and increase the number of members we engage and support.
Adults and young people with a learning disability are at the heart of what we do at OTB: they are our ‘members’ and a critical part of the overall OTB Team. We work with our members, their parents/carers, and others involved in their lives, to help them to fulfil their potential, to learn and achieve their goals. Members participate in OTB café to learn new skills, improve confidence and self-esteem, achieve qualifications, gain meaningful experience of the world of work and as appropriate progress into paid employment.
We have recently restructured the OTB staff team and this role of Support Team Leader is part of the new team that will help sustain and build on the success of OTB to date.
