Habilitation Specialist (Part-time)

We are Sight for Surrey – an ambitious charity offering a lifetime of support to people who are blind or partially sighted, Deaf, deafblind or hard of hearing. Our mission is to support people to overcome their day-to-day challenges, achieve their potential and lead an independent life. Established in 1922, we are a countywide charity based in Fetcham, near Leatherhead.
Sight for Surrey is committed to ensuring that children and young people who have a vision impairment or multi-sensory impairment are given the opportunities they require to reach their full potential.
Support from the National Lottery and Children in Need have enabled us to expand our Children & Young People’s services. We are now seeking to recruit two part-time Habilitation Specialists to join our multi- disciplinary team. The post holders will have responsibility for assessing and delivering mobility and other independent living skills, teaching concepts and helping children to gain an understanding of our world. The children/young people will be aged 0-25 years and living within the county of Surrey.
Ideally the post holder will have a Specialist Graduate Diploma in Habilitation (Children and Young People) or equivalent qualification. However as we have experienced Habilitation Specialists within our team we would also welcome applications from students who have a place on the UCL Habilitation Course or from qualified Rehabilitation Workers who are interested in studying for the Habilitation Top up Degree.
For further details of the role please see the job description. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Certificate will be required and arranged following job offer.
Closing date: 26th June 2019 / Interview date: 10th July 2019
