The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people.
Are you passionate about participation, young people’s engagement and making sure their voice is heard and acted on by decision makers? Have you already made a significant impact elsewhere in making sure children and young people have a voice? Do you have the passion and enthusiasm to make a real difference to the lives of deaf children and young? If so, we would like to hear from you.
This post offers an amazing opportunity to manage and develop our growing participation work and profile with deaf children and young people. Working closely with the Policy and Campaigns team, the post holder will manage a team to actively engage and support deaf children and young people to get involved in our policy and campaigning activity, ensuring all of our work is influenced by their views and experiences.
The role is also an outward facing service and therefore you will bring your experience to partnership development and influencing others. You will also possess strong management and leadership skills that are underpinned by strategic thinking and budget management.
Candidates will need extensive experience of working directly with children and young people and a strong commitment to upholding their needs and rights. Having a good working knowledge of current policy in safeguarding, education, health and decision making processes would be advantageous.
