Sensory Hub Officer (Sight Loss)

  • Full time
  • £25,408
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 14th April 2021

The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (The ALLIANCE) is an independent Scottish Charity funded by a grant from the Scottish Government. Our vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.

The ALLIANCE has three core aims; we seek to:

  • Ensure people are at the centre, that their voices, expertise and rights drive policy and sit at the heart of design, delivery and improvement of support and services.
  • Support transformational change, towards approaches that work with individual and community assets, helping people to stay well, supporting human rights, self-management, co-production and independent living.
  • Champion and support the third sector as a vital strategic and delivery partner and foster better cross-sector understanding and partnership.

The Sensory Hub Officer (Sight Loss) forms an integral role within an exciting new team at The ALLIANCE – The Scottish Sensory Hub. This post will operate within the strategic aims of The ALLIANCE with an emphasis on the voice of lived experience, co-production and human rights.

The post will draw from the significant history and ethos of The Scottish Council on Visual Impairment (SCOVI) who are now joining The Scottish Sensory Hub as part of The ALLIANCE. SCOVI’s mission - for blind and partially sighted people throughout Scotland to lead independent and inclusive lives - will continue to be enshrined within The Sensory Hub.

The post holder will have the ability to develop and strengthen informed relationships across the Scottish sight loss sector and engage with the wider sensory sector. The role requires skill in working to your own initiative, as part of a wider team and the ability to manage competing priorities across a range of strategic policies and outcomes. The post holder will be a skilled coordinator and experienced networker. The ability to synthesise information, produce high quality reports, engage with research-led practice and to promote a rights-based approach across the sensory field is essential.

The successful applicant must be able to travel regularly throughout Scotland. A flexible approach to working hours is essential, as occasional additional hours and overnight stays will be required.
