Job Title: Digital Projects Officer
Responsible to: CEO
Hours: Full-time (40 hours per week)
Starting date: October 2022
M4RD exists to provide education and practical tools targeted at medical professionals, enabling them to reduce the diagnostic odyssey and improve the patient experience.
An estimated 3.5 million people in the UK live with a rare condition and one of the greatest challenges highlighted by this patient group is lack of medical professional awareness.
A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 1 in 2000 in a population and approximately 7000 rare conditions have been described. Rare diseases have been a health priority in the UK and across the globe for many years now. Our power to diagnose rare conditions and our scope for treatment has vastly accelerated in the last twenty years.
However the accepted approach to medical education on rare disease has changed very little in that time. Usually a handful of individual rare diseases are taught about in medical education based on factors such as geographical proximity to a specialist center, an educator with a special interest or purely because it’s traditional to teach about some conditions in certain specialties. Usually this kind of education has a biomedical focus, rather than a holistic focus that is needed in rare conditions. The majority of which are life-long and cause multi-system involvement.
The charity is small and consists of a friendly group of staff and Trustees. The work can be intense but rewarding as the charity responds to the needs of the rare disease political landscape. Within reason we try to be flexible in order to make the most out of your skills and time. If you like project management, being organised and working at a fast pace on something fun then please do apply.

Producing the podcast will include scheduling interviews, creating Zoom meetings for the interviews, editing the podcast, liaising with the interviewee on edits and permissions and publishing. This will involve working with Moodle but you will be supported by an M4RD Trustee who is a professional online learning developer as needed.
M4RD has a lot of excellent video content however we haven’t had the opportunity to make it suitable for YouTube. You would be able to take this untouched platform and make it another excellent resource for our audience. This will involve working with Vimeo, YouTube and Canva.

At The Bike Project we provide an innovative solution to one of the most pressing problems facing asylum seekers and refugees on arrival to the UK: access to transport when living on a limited income, which for asylum seekers is as little as £5.66 per day.
Our mission is simple: each year we match refugees and asylum seekers with the many thousands of bikes that go abandoned or unloved around the country. We then go on to support these new bike owners to realise the emotional, practical and physical benefits of cycling.
10 years since that first bike donation, we are about to donate our 10, 000th bike and have expanded the project to include multiple programs, from refugee befriending services to women-only cycling classes.
We have supported tens of thousands of refugees to get access to bikes, learn to cycle and created a community of colleagues, refugees, volunteers and supporters. And we’ve grown rapidly in the last few years, from £720k turnover in 2018, to £2.2m turnover in 2021
Despite our successes, this is just the start. The demand from refugees for our work far outstrips our ability to meet it so we are looking to continue to grow until every refugee in the UK has the opportunity to start cycling.

In this role you will help churches to identify and sell redundant land and buildings to housing associations. This increases the supply of affordable homes in Wales, helping to alleviate homelessness.
Who are we ?
Housing Justice Cymru is the Welsh arm of Housing Justice. A national charity which mobilises church and community groups to take action to address homelessness and housing need, serving some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.

Furthermore, there are an excess of 250 dwellings at the feasibility and detailed design stage.
It is recognised that each year an increasing number of the 6000 places of worship in Wales are closing due to declining and ageing congregations.

You will bring prior experience of fundraising, ideally within a charity setting.
You will be a self-motivated and caring person who is passionate about helping people’s quality of life and committed to improving the outcomes of patients and their families.

This is an incredibly exciting time for Cranstoun. Our vision is to be a world-class leader in rebuilding lives, and we are looking for someone passionate about harm reduction and innovation to play a vital role helping us on this journey.
Working within our Customer team, you will lead the piloting and expansion of our new digital Buddy Up service, designed to reduce drug related harms and deaths. We have worked with the Brave Technology Cooperation in Canada who originally developed this idea and app and are seeking an ambitious and compassionate individual to manage the piloting and expansion of this ground-breaking service, operating for the first time within the United Kingdom.
If you have a proven track record of developing and delivering innovative new services within a health and social care environment, combined with an energy to develop and deliver new ways of working, we would love to hear from you.
The BuddyUp app
The idea is simple, people who are using drugs alone can download the app and be connected to a Cranstoun volunteer, with whom they can build a rescue plan in the event of an emergency. The plan is only activated if the app user overdoses. It will send an emergency message to them, triggering the appropriate medical attention. This app is therefore all about preventing avoidable, fatal overdose.
With this offer we can reach all parts of the UK, people who are in rural locations can access the same support as someone living in a city. There is no pressure on anyone using this service, they do not have to be involved in Cranstoun or any other services or give out any sensitive information.
The app provides support and harm reduction advice at the time when individuals are using drugs. For example, we can provide safer injecting and overdose prevention advice and if someone asks for help to access drug treatment services in their area, we can provide this information.
Cranstoun is pleased to partner with Drug Science and Release in this venture. Within the app links are available to both these organisations who can provide reliable information about drugs and legal advice.
Our aim as an organisation is to bring world class services to the UK from around the world. Our BuddyUp app is an example of this aim, and we believe it is a one stop shop for anyone who uses drugs alone.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept CVs.
A standard DBS check will be undertaken with the successful candidate.
Closing date: Wednesday 24 August 2022.
Interview date (via Microsoft Teams): Wednesday 31 August 2022.
We are an inclusive employer, committed to promoting equality and diversity in all areas of our work.

Volunteers are amazing. They enhance our capacity and enable us to make a bigger and better impact for nature. The Species Recovery Volunteer Network is an exciting project to get more, and more diverse, people engaged in work to save our most threatened species. Volunteers carry out a wide variety of activities including bird-surveying, community engagement and nest protection, whilst working to provide a sustainable legacy for our most threatened species. The Network is already supporting the recovery of species in Eastern England, including little tern, stone curlew, and turtle dove.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and organised individual with a passion for working with people to develop and deliver the Species Recovery Volunteer Network in NI. This is a really exciting opportunity as we expand the approach into NI and engage volunteers in priority species projects here.
