Action on Hearing Loss Scotland has an exciting new opportunity for a Deaf Awareness and British Sign Language trainer to deliver quality training across Scotland, the post will be based in our Glasgow Office.
The trainer will support partners through our ‘Working for Change’ campaign improving their confidence to recruit, support and retain deaf and hard of hearing individuals within the workplace. They will conduct Work Place Assessments, basic hearing checks, Deaf Awareness Sessions; which will include an introduction to workplace BSL and the development of a peer support model. We will support partners to achieve their Disability Confident Award, which will demonstrate their commitment to supporting staff with disabilities.
Communication is a basic human need. Yet most of us know someone who struggles to communicate through hearing loss. It can cause substantial harm to friendships, family relationships, confidence, employability, mental health and life chances.
Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the RNID) is the UK’s largest charity for the 11 million people in the UK who confront deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss every day. Established in 1911, we help people to take control of their lives and live the life they choose, removing the barriers standing in their way. We give people support and care, develop technology and treatments, and campaign for equality.
We champion the value of difference and equality and celebrate our diverse and inclusive workforce. We actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from BAME backgrounds or who are deaf or hard of hearing. With almost 20% of our employees having a disability we proudly hold Disability Confident Leader status and guarantee an interview for disabled applicants meeting the minimum essential criteria.
This post is also subject to a PVG check.
