Deafblind Scotland is the specialist charity working with adults living with dual sensory loss. Our ambitions are high for members and we are therefore at the cutting edge of finding ways to support people to lead their most meaningful life.

Deafblindness can be a devastating condition that can make daily life extremely challenging and as a result, many dual sensory impaired people become isolated. Our services can make a vital difference to their lives; enabling people to regain confidence, gain vital communication skills and re-establish social connections. Some people may acquire the loss of both senses where others may be born deaf or blind and lose the other sense through conditions such as Ushers Syndrome or through the ageing process.

This is a key role and we are seeking to recruit an energetic and efficient individual, who will work to ensure the administration and maintenance of the human resources function of the organisation is kept in accordance with current employment law. Provide administrative support to the Board of Directors, Chief Executive and Senior Management Team. To collect information and produce newsletters for members and professionals working in the field of sensory loss and work as part of an internal marketing team.
