Work with us
Are you motivated and solutions-driven? Do you want to be part of changing the lives of disabled people?
We are Business Disability Forum. We are a small, friendly, and innovative-thinking, not-for-profit organisation that exists to increase the life chances of disabled people by working with business, Government, and disabled people. To do this effectively, we need the right people in our workforce.
Why work here?
You’ll be part of an organisation that exists to change people’s lives. “Rewarding work”, “stimulating”, and “feeling appreciated” are just some of the things our staff tell us they love about working at Business Disability Forum. We believe we offer great staff benefits, including an Employee Assistance Service (including access to counselling and other wellbeing services), private health insurance, life insurance and permanent health insurance, plus a 5 per cent workplace pension contribution.
An inclusive workplace
Disability and people inclusion are central to why we exist. It’s who we are. We believe every individual should be given the opportunity to thrive and be their best without barriers in their way, and we want this for our own staff as well. While we rely less on ‘counting’ diversity profiles and we instead want to ensure everyone can work and develop in the ways that are best for them, over 60 per cent of our staff have told us they have a disability or long-term condition.
We are currently looking for an Advice Service Manager to join our team.
The Advice Service Manager will:
- Manage and co-deliver the services provided by Business Disability Forum’s Advice Service including acting as referral point for complex queries.
- Delivery of the Business Disability Forum Peer Learning Network.
- Support the delivery of the Business Disability Forum internal upskilling programme.
- Support the delivery of the Disability Smart products, in particularly providing advice and guidance on completed self-assessments, carrying out Disability Smart Audits and quality assuring audits completed by other members of the Business Partnerships Team.
