We are looking to recruit an Outreach Worker to join our Client Services Team.

The Role

In this exciting role, reporting to the Client Services Manager, you will contribute to our front-line work with people experiencing visual impairment in the community.

Responsible for the South Cambridgeshire and City region, you will work with visually impaired people through a combination of one-to-one home visits, and peer support groups.

Working closely with the Mobile Support Lead (who delivers Equipment and Technology demonstrations from our purpose-built van), you will demonstrate low vision aids, equipment and technology to enable visually impaired people to gain their independence.

You will offer a comprehensive information, advice, casework and advocacy service to visually impaired people, including providing support to apply for benefits, concessions and individual grants, and referrals to other organisations.

You will develop and deliver a range of sports and leisure activities and outings for visually impaired people within your region.

About You

We are looking for a dynamic, energetic and outgoing individual who communicates well and thrives on building relationships.

You will need to be flexible and responsive and able to manage your own workload.

Knowledge of low vision and blindness, and low vision aids and equipment are desirable but not essential as training will be provided.

Previous experience in support worker position is desirable.

It goes without saying that you will need a full, valid driving license.

If you are interested in this role, please email your C.V. and a covering letter to Jenny Medcalf.

The closing date for this role is noon on Friday 4th December 2020, with interviews scheduled for the week commencing Monday 7th December 2020.
