An exciting opportunity has arisen at Disability Equality Scotland. We are seeking an experienced Project Development Worker to join our team.

Disability Equality Scotland is a membership organisation for disabled people and disability groups/organisations. It’s our mission to make Scotland fully accessible.

We promote access in its widest sense, including access to our built and natural environment and access to the same and equal opportunities as enjoyed by others in our communities, promoting a life of dignity, respect, choice, and independence. This extends beyond physical access to include access to information, access to inclusive communication and inclusion in decision-making, whether with planners over inclusive design or transport providers about accessible and safe travel.

Disability Equality Scotland is a key delivery partner of both Inspiring Scotland and Transport Scotland. In 2020 we launched a pilot of Scotland’s first National Hate Crime Charter with key transport providers. The pilot included front-facing staff, managers and passengers and successfully reached over 1.2million passengers in an eight-week period.

The successful candidate will be responsible for (though not exclusively): the project management of the Hate Crime Charter activities; ongoing training and development, in association with transport providers across Scotland; and undertaking monitoring and evaluation of the project,
