We are seeking a qualified rehabilitation officer to work with visually impaired adults in our Northumberland Service. If you are passionate about improving the quality of life for people with a visual impairment and hold a full driving license* with access to a vehicle, then we would like to hear from you (* reasonable adjustments are in place for people with a disability). The main responsibilities of either post will be to;

  • Meet and supporting service users by undertaking comprehensive assessments to identify the options available to meet their needs
  • Manage own case load
  • Undertake case recording
  • Develop person-centred support plans linked to outcomes
  • Provide professional/appropriate advice and assistance to the service users and when required signpost them to other services

You will have experience of working with visually impaired people, be able to undertake needs led assessments, rehabilitation, manage a comprehensive case load and be able to use the internal database.  It is essential that you have a Diploma in Rehabilitation studies and in respect of this post we have a salary progression scheme. We would also consider applications from unqualified individuals that have the appropriate experience of supporting adults with a visual impairment.  How the hours are worked is negotiable and both roles will be a hybrid model (combination of working from home and from our office base in Morpeth when required).

We strive to create an inclusive and diverse workplace and we are committed to wellbeing, promoting hybrid working, offering generous annual leave entitlements, an Employee Assistance Program, Health Cash Plan, Occupational Sick Pay scheme, and flexible TOIL scheme. We invest generously in training and development programmes, providing sponsorship to pursue formal professional qualifications and the opportunity to learn and develop sign language skills.
