Life Project (Bath) is seeking to recruit an inspiring individual with experience and enthusiasm to lead our growing services for adults with learning disabilities in the new post of Day Services Coordinator.
The Life Project is an independent, local charity rooted in Christian principles and ethos. We have been working with adults with learning disabilities for over 10 years, striving to create communities, transform society and love life. Our Day Services currently include creative and purposeful activities at our facilities at the Old Acorn Barn alongside maintenance and development of an allotment, and we want to offer more.
Reporting to the Chief Executive, the appointed applicant will lead on the oversight, delivery, and development of our Day Services. As well as direct service delivery this role will further develop and implement our strategic goals to become a robust and sustainable organisation. It encompasses growing the reach and diversity of Day Service provision, increasing accessibility, and management of a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers.
To be successful in this role you will be proactive, have a positive solution-focused attitude and the ability to help realise the significant ambition of this Christian charity.
There is an expectation that this role will progress over time as our day services develop and increase. Initially we are recruiting to 24 hours per week (equivalent to 3 days) but as the number of sessions and services increase so too will the hours. We have set ourselves a target to increase this position by an additional day per week (i.e. 24 to 32 hours per week) by the end of the first year.
The Life Project offers a competitive benefits package, and the charity is committed to equalities, diversity and inclusion and therefore encourages applications from all sections of the community. If you require any assistance to overcome potential barriers, please let us know.
We recognise that we are asking a lot within the Job Description. In identifying the most suitable person for the role, character is most important to us. We encourage you to get in touch if the job excites you but you are unsure if you are suitably equipped or qualified.
