We’re recuiting for a Mobile Services Lead – an exciting and varied role, contributing to our front-line work with people experiencing visual impairment in Cambridgeshire. If you like meeting people, are outgoing and energetic, this is the job for you!

In this exciting role, reporting to the Client Services Manager, you will contribute to our front-line work with people experiencing visual impairment in the community.

Operating out of our Cambridge office, you will drive our mobile unit, a purpose-built vehicle carrying a range of low vision items and equipment, and information about our services.
Working closely with the Low Vision Equipment and Technology Lead and Outreach Workers you will demonstrate low vision items, equipment, and technology to enable visually impaired people to gain their independence.
