Sight Support Derbyshire is looking to recruit a qualified Senior Rehabilitation Specialist (Rehabilitation Officer) to be part of our dedicated team supporting the delivery of high quality services for blind and partially sighted people in Derbyshire.

You will need to be a ‘self-starter’, you will carry out holistic person-centred assessments of need and provide rehabilitation programmes for orientation and mobility, communication, and independent living skills for visually impaired people. If appointed you will prioritise and allocate cases, and support other rehabilitation staff as well as carrying your own case load.

The hours can be flexible to some degree, with full or part-time hours considered. (Please telephone if you wish to discuss options before applying.)

It is essential that you are a qualified rehabilitation worker, holding one of the profession based qualifications available through national training establishments. You should be registered or willing to register with the Rehabilitation Workers Professional Network.

Extensive travel is an essential part of the role, and as many areas in the county are hard to reach by public transport, it is likely that access to a vehicle will be needed (own car or Access to Work).

We can offer you a challenging and rewarding environment, a competitive salary and pension, and generous annual leave entitlement. You will be part of a friendly, helpful and supportive team who are all dedicated to improving the lives of visually impaired people.

This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
