Working at local and national level, Visibility Scotland aims to affect positive change and improve outcomes for visually impaired people of all ages. We want to empower and encourage children and adults to focus on what they can do, not what they cannot.

For the first time ever, Visibility Scotland are now recruiting a qualified Occupational Therapist (OT). To apply for this exciting full time post, you must be passionate, creative, inspiring and able to work under your own initiative.

This new role will require the successful candidate to design and deliver an exciting new self-management programme aimed at teaching people living with a visual impairment healthy habits and everyday strategies.

You will design a unique, rolling six week peer support programme, providing person centred advice on: posture, visual awareness, hand eye coordination and movement within indoor spaces for people of all ages living with a visual impairment.

You will liaise with patients, family members and professionals to ensure that people experiencing changes to their daily life due to a visual impairment receive the correct support at the right time. You must have excellent communication skills and the innate desire to provide inclusive support to all.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a motivated and ambitious organisation. You will ideally have a proven track record in health and social care or the willingness and motivation to learn, and you must have team spirit!

Funding for this project has been provided by the Self-Management Fund for Scotland administered on behalf of the Scottish Government by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) with support from the William Grant Foundation.
