They are now recruiting for an inspiring new Director of Services and Development to strategically lead and develop a range of capacity building services, supporting DDPOs across London to deliver tailored, empowering and effective services to all beneficiaries.

Reporting up to the CEO, as Director of Services and Development you will lead on the organisation's capacity building services to all member DDPOs (London-based, equality organisations run by and for Deaf and Disabled people), ensuring they receive high quality and accessible organisational and business advice, training and support. You will act as a key member of Inclusion London's Senior Management Team, leading on internal quality assurance, monitoring and evaluation.

You will be a collaborative leader, able to develop and inspire staff as well as partner organisations, whilst providing strategic direction and solutions for ongoing service development. You will have a strong understanding of equality and diversity as it affects marginalised communities, and will have a strong personal commitment to the Social Model of Disability and the Cultural Model of Deafness.
