Would you like to join an exciting and unique service for Armed Forces veterans with a visual impairment?

Our Linburn Centre is an activity hub to support the independence of armed forces veterans with sight loss. We are looking for a Centre Officer who will enable members to maximise the benefit and enjoyment they gain from attending the Centre. They will be a key member of the staff team, assessing the needs of our members and developing ways to support their independence.

We aim to find someone with a variety of skills and abilities. You will be innovative and creative in approach and have interests you can share with our members, as well as a caring approach.
