Temporary post to end June 2017 (possibility of ongoing work dependant on funding)

Derby based

22.5 hours (3 days) per week


(£19,490 pro-rata – £11,852 per annum)

*Happy to consider a secondment from a suitable organisation.

Sight Support Derbyshire is looking for a Project Worker to be part of a dedicated team supporting the delivery of high quality services to blind and partially sighted people in Derbyshire.

Part of the operational team based in Derby and reporting to the Service Manager, you will work across Derbyshire (including Derby City). You will need to be a ‘self-starter’ and able to work on your own initiative to ensure that services run smoothly and deliver the required outcomes.

The role of the Project Worker will initially provide support to an identified group of visually impaired people, helping them to find appropriate services to combat social isolation.  A good knowledge of the voluntary and community sector is required to ensure that people can be referred on and sign posted appropriately.

At a time of big changes in both voluntary and statutory services we need people who can be flexible, adapt to change and bring a positive attitude to their work.

It is essential that you understand how the voluntary and community sector works and also what statutory services are responsible for. Whilst it is desirable that you have experience in working with visually impaired people, it is not essential as training will be provided.

You will need access to a vehicle for work purposes and be able and willing to travel around the county.

We can offer you a challenging and rewarding environment, and a competitive salary. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

For an application pack please email heather.davidson@sightsupportderbyshire.org.uk

 Closing date for applications: 9am Monday 6th February 2017

Interview date: Monday 13th February 2017

Sight Support Derbyshire is committed to being an equal opportunities employer.
