Come and work for a multiple award winning charity!
My Life My Choice (MLMC) is a self-advocacy charity run by and for people with learning disabilities, founded in 1998. The charity delivers a diverse range of innovative and user led projects that enhance and empower the lives of adults with learning disabilities in Oxfordshire. These established projects include Stingray nightclub, the Power Up training & consultancy & research team, Champions who speak up and campaign, Travel Buddy scheme, 10 local self-help groups, and Gig Buddies.
We are now looking for a Gig Buddies Coordinator who will continue this exciting new project to target loneliness and isolation by matching beneficiaries with volunteers to go out and have fun together. The Gig Buddies Coordinator will be responsible for recruiting, training and managing the volunteer community as well as the matching of beneficiaries and volunteers who love the same kind of ‘gigs’ (e.g. football matches, the cinema, museum, concerts, music events etc.) so that they can go to these ‘gigs’ together. The Gig Buddies Coordinator will also organise and deliver a programme of monthly social events for the members of MLMC to enjoy.
The successful candidate would be joining MLMC at an exciting time as we move to more spacious and modern offices in line with our development. Staff benefits include flexible working arrangements (including time off in lieu of hours worked), working from home arrangements where suitable, a discretionary two days of extra special leave at Christmas, and staff parking (although, if possible, we’d rather you used your bike, the bus, or walked!).
The successful candidate will need to show a passion for empowering and raising the voices of people with learning disabilities.
The successful applicant will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service enhanced check.
Salary: £22,911 - £26,317 pa, plus 6% pension contribution
