Breakthrough UK, a leading disabled peoples user led organisation, is seeking to recruit a highly motivated and resourceful individual to deliver our innovative Pathways Project.
The Project, which is grant-funded by Lloyds Foundation, works with unemployed people who experience multiple or complex barriers to employment and participation in society enabling them to develop their independent living and employability skills and reduce their isolation.
You will have a strong personal commitment to equality, social justice and inclusion and an understanding or lived experience of disabling barriers in employment and society and how to remove these.
You will be resourceful and able to work effectively on your own initiative and as a team member contributing to achievement of shared goals as well as individual and Project targets.
You will design and deliver content for skills development workshops with groups of Project participants, establish constructive relationships with other stakeholders to generate referral of participants to the Project and provide personalised support to participants to enable them to set goals and action plan to achieve them.
You will also monitor and evaluate Project activities and collect evidence of outcomes for participants and the overall social impact of the Project.
As a Disabled Peoples User Led Organisation our Articles of Association require that a minimum of 75% of our Board of Trustees are Disabled People and we strive to be an exemplar employer of Disabled People, ensuring that our employment practices and workplace are barrier free and inclusive. Currently over 50% of our employees identify as Disabled People.
