Use your experience and skills to make a difference for people with dyslexia and dyscalculia by joining our growing team.
We are looking for a Knowledge & Information Manager to support people with dyslexia by developing the British Dyslexia Association information programme and embedding best practice in information development.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the British Dyslexia Association, the charity that is the voice of dyslexic people. The successful candidate will join our team at a time when we are expanding our information and advice services, and play a pivotal role in supporting our greater focus on our charitable purpose, at the heart of which is evidence-based information on dyslexia and dyscalculia.
The Knowledge & Information Manager will be responsible for all information that we produce, across digital, print and person to person platforms. Alongside thousands of daily visitors to our website, our well established and much valued helpline sees many incoming calls and emails every day, and this role will work with colleagues to ensure all our information is current and accurate.
We are contacted every day by people in need of help or advice, including parents whose children may not be getting the support they need at school, or employees whose workplace has not made reasonable adjustments. We offer expert advice and we are seen as the organisation to go to for expertise on dyslexia.
We are seeking a candidate with expertise in information development, ideally gained in an advice, education or health information role. You will be experienced in producing information for the public from the research stage, through to writing, external review and publication, and experienced in researching information using databases and the internet. You will be confident in liaising with academics and researchers, and you will understand how to explain complex issues for public understanding.
Substantial knowledge of dyslexia and/or neurodiversity gained in an academic or professional setting would be ideal but what matters is that you care about accurate information and its positive impact empowering people.
