Job Description

About the Role

It is a very exciting time for Leonard Cheshire’s International Team with our ambitious but well-planned growth strategy beginning to gain momentum. We are looking for people to join us on this journey of growth. This is a significant opportunity for you to support the implementation of Leonard Cheshire’s interventions in a new innovative programme whose aim is to improve well-being and inclusion of people with disabilities in low and middle income settings. This will be achieved through international development actors who are able to access new, innovative and effective approaches to supporting people with disabilities – with focus on jobs and livelihoods and improved and high-quality data, evidence and technical support on disability inclusion routinely used for decision making.

About You

We are looking for a talented individual to manage our new programme, Innovating Pathways for Employment Inclusion (IPEI) in 3 countries across Asia and Africa. This person will manage the programme, working closely with partner organisations and Leonard Cheshire teams in the countries to ensure the effective delivery, financial management, monitoring and reporting of the project.

About Leonard Cheshire

We are Leonard Cheshire – supporting individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability. We’re at the heart of local life – opening doors to opportunity, choice and support in communities around the globe. Through pioneering research and innovation, we are building a fairer, more inclusive society that recognises the positive contributions we all make, and where we are all proud to play our part. Our international development programmes support children in school and disabled adults into employment across Africa and Asia.

What we Offer

  • Fair and competitive pay rates
  • A generous employer contribution to a company pension scheme with additional life cover
  • Substantial annual leave, with the option to buy or sell leave
  • Access to a cash health plan at favourable rates
  • A Comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme

We seek candidates with a genuine commitment to the values and ethos of Leonard Cheshire who are excited by this opportunity to make a difference to the lives of people with a disability.

Leonard Cheshire welcomes applications from all sections of the community and we strongly encourage applications from persons with lived experience of disability.

Shortlisting for this role may take place as applications are received. We therefore reserve the right to close this vacancy once a suitable candidate has been appointed.

Closing date: 26 March 2019
