Job description

Please be aware that this vacancy may close earlier than the advertised date. If you are interested in the position, please submit an application as soon as possible.

Deafblind UK supports people who have both sight and hearing loss. You’ll be welcomed into our big family of clinical, operational and administrative staff who are all passionate about making life better for our members. Working for Deafblind UK is flexible and friendly. We support a healthy work-life balance and from the moment you join us, you will be fully supported by the wider team. You will also get a generous annual leave allowance and access to our Westfield Health Cash Plan.

We’re looking for a Social Inclusion Officer, based in the Peterborough area, who will work with service users, current and new key partners, stakeholders and volunteers to connect people with dual sensory loss to accessible social opportunities and the services that Deafblind UK provide.

We are looking for someone who can excel at networking and communication, with experience of using own initiative and creativity to develop a project, programme or area of work.

The post holder will become an active member of the Charitable Services team, promoting the delivery of accessible social opportunities in our local communities. The main tasks delivered to achieve this will be:

  • To support a monthly local social group for people with dual sensory loss;
  • To support a Peterborough-based social group for people with vision loss to deliver their regular activities;
  • To co-ordinate any volunteers who provide help at the social groups;
  • To work with local people with sensory loss to research the services and support that can best assist them;
  • To develop and maintain a wide network of connections to key partner organisations in order to promote the work of Deafblind UK;
  • To represent Deafblind UK and its members at local events, within online meetings and forums and to promote the service and generate service user referrals;
  • To provide support for Deafblind UK’s Technology Service Lead in the hosting of our Peterborough based technology focus group, as required.

Contact us for further details of the job role on 0800 132320.

The Company

We support people who have combined sight and hearing loss which affects their access to information, mobility, and communication. We help them to live with their condition and to build their confidence and independence.

Deafblindness affects everyone in different ways. Some people might have mild sight and hearing loss whereas others can’t see or hear anything. It can be isolating and lonely and can lead to mental health issues - but it’s far more common than many people realise. Around 450,000 people are affected by sight and hearing loss in the UK.

Schedule:

  • Day shift
  • Weekdays

Work authorisation:

  • United Kingdom (required)

Work Location: Remote

To apply please provide a CV and one page cover letter demonstrating your previous experience and suitability.
