As Hearing Forces Project Manager, you will lead and manage three Project Officers and admin staff ensuring that staff and volunteers are developed, trained and motivated to provide the highest quality outreach and information service to support the delivery of the wider Unforgotten Forces Project.
We are looking for an experienced Manager who has the project and management skills to support a team to continue to deliver this much needed service.
Project staff are employed to provide information, advice and support to individuals, their families and/or carers on issues surrounding their hearing loss or tinnitus. We offer a pathway of support alleviating concerns over their hearing loss; this pathway consists of pre-fit support of hearing aids, information support in relation to audiology visits, post support thereafter and advice on any assistive equipment available. In relation to tinnitus we provide support groups, courses, factsheets, equipment loans and one to one individual support to enable the veterans to gain an understanding of how to cope and manage their condition.
Are you a dynamic and confident person who has the skills and experience with the ability to both work on your own initiative and within a team to provide a person-centred service for deaf and hard of hearing people?
Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s Hearing Forces Project is part of consortium led by Poppy Scotland, funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Aged Veterans Fund to provide services to aged veterans named ‘Unforgotten Forces’. We work with partners pan Scotland with staff covering North, East and West for the projects’ three year duration which ends on 30th June 2020 (funding beyond this date is being pursued by the consortium). We provide rehabilitation support to aged veterans with hearing loss or tinnitus.
Communication is a basic human need. Yet most of us know someone who struggles to communicate through hearing loss. It can cause substantial harm to friendships, family relationships, confidence, employability, mental health and life chances.
Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the RNID) is the UK’s largest charity for the 11 million people in the UK who confront deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss every day. Established in 1911, we help people to take control of their lives and live the life they choose, removing the barriers standing in their way. We give people support and care, develop technology and treatments, and campaign for equality.
