We are looking for an enthusiastic person who can help promote the use of Assistive Technology (AT) to enable vulnerable people to continue living safely and independently in the community. You will assess referrals from social care staff, partner agencies and the general public, providing advice on how AT solutions can help to manage risks, support daily living activities and provide cost effective care. You will arrange for service partners to install appropriate solutions. You will have experience of working in health, housing or social care, and a good understanding of how AT can be used to support vulnerable people, including people with age related frailty, dementia, physical or learning disabilities, and mental health issues. Training will be provided to further enhance your knowledge. This is a changing area of work, and you will be required to keep up to date with new AT solutions. 

For an informal chat about the post please ring Mark Douglas on 0115 8040342. NCC staff wishing to apply for this post as a secondment will require prior approval from their manager.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
