Have you experience in managing staff and projects?

Do you have a track record of working in partnership?

Do you have a clear vision of how to develop a team & develop new projects?

Disability Can Do wishes to appoint a Learning & Development Team Leader.

About Us:

Disability Can Do is an independent user led charity that works with, and for disabled adults and carers and places their needs and aspirations at the centre of everything we do

Our mission:

Disability Can Do’s mission is to promote and encourage inclusion, independence and choice.

 Our Aims: 

  • To enable disabled people to gain independence
  • To increase their knowledge of services and choices available
  • To reduce isolation for disabled people and their carers
  • To enable disabled people to have a voice locally, regionally and nationally and promote their right to be involved in decision-making about their lives.
  • To raise awareness about the barriers to inclusion disabled people face especially with regard to health, housing, transport, employment, education

As a Charity we seek to achieve our aims by:

  • Providing Advocacy and Information
  • Supporting disabled adults and their carers to maximise their income
  • Providing Employability Support
  • Providing Volunteering Opportunities
  • Setting up set up initiatives to lessen the isolation of disabled people and their carers
  • Promoting the right of disabled people to be involved in decision-making about their lives and about what goes on in their community.
  • Training ourselves and others about disability issues

Disabled people don’t want to be segregated from society so Disability Can Do is working to provide services that will enable them to lead fully inclusive lives.

Job Role:

We are looking for a dedicated, pro-active individual who can lead our existing training team, developing and delivering new projects and supporting the organisation towards sustainability.  We are looking for someone who can think outside of the box, with a track record of securing funding and delivering projects in partnership, with a good understanding of social enterprise.

Current projects support disabled adults into employment, however training will be widened to include wider personal and skills development to disadvantaged people and corporate training packages.

Whilst projects are delivered to targets, we are looking for an individual who can add real value to our service delivery and wants the best for the individuals the service supports.
