Job Vacancies – Regional Peer Support Officers x 2
The provision of peer-led support to newly spinal cord injured people and their families is at the core of SIA’s service delivery activities, with our team of Regional Peer Support Officers working in a variety of settings up and down the country, including in SCI Centres. Their role is to provide much-needed support to those coming to terms with the impact of such a life-changing injury, acting as positive role models and playing an active part in the delivery of other frontline SIA services. Our RPSOs also act as ambassadors for the charity, particularly when working to forge relationships with healthcare professionals and/or key supporters of our work.
We are now looking to recruit two replacement Regional Peer Support Officers to join our team and provide support specifically within the East Midlands region and the South Wales & Borders region. Due to the nature of the work we anticipate that the postholders will themselves be spinal cord injured, and will be required to undergo relevant checks with the Disclosure & Barring Service.
Each post is part-time (28 hours per week) and is offered at a salary of £20,300 per annum (£25,375 pro rata) plus 28 days leave (pro rata) and access to life assurance and pension schemes.
Closing date for completed applications: Friday 30 June
Interviews will be held at SIA’s offices in Milton Keynes on Thursday 13 July
