Blind Veterans UK

Blind Veterans UK – Events and Entertainment Facilitator


Rustington, West Sussex

Most of us grow up with 5 senses and can’t imagine what it’s like to lose any one of those.

For some ex-service people, this is their reality. Suddenly their whole way of life is changed, even walking to the shops becomes a huge task.

Fortunately, Blind Veterans are here to help rebuild their lives. But they can’t do it alone.

This is where you come in.

As Events & Entertainment Facilitator you’ll be responsible for the delivery of a stimulating programme for veterans that focuses on their individual interests, needs and passions, while also enhancing relationships with the local community.

You’ll deliver activities across a 7 day week and work closely with other departments to make everything work.

You’ll know that facilitating events means being super organised while still being prepared to adapt on the go when the one thing you didn’t plan for happens. You’ll also need to be comfortable working with a wide variety of personalities and changing your style on the fly to keep everyone engaged.

We’re open to candidates looking for full time or part time hours, however these will include evenings and weekends.

We offer:

– Salary of £25,465 per annum
– Generous annual leave with the option to buy additional days
– Pension scheme with generous employer contributions
– Healthcare cash plan
– Access to legal services and mental health support
– Employee assistance programme
– Paid professional subscriptions and discounts
– Home working allowance
– Professional and personal development
– Enhanced pay

Blind Veterans UK helps vision-impaired ex-service people of every generation rebuild their lives after sight loss. We help blind ex-service people lead independent and fulfilling lives by supporting them with our in-depth expertise, experience and full range of services.

This position is subject to Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Checks.

We are only able to accept applications from candidates who are located in and eligible to work within the UK. We are unable to provide any type of Visa sponsorship.

We embrace diversity and welcome applicants from people with a disability and from all backgrounds and cultures.

The current closing date is 8 November, however we may close the role early if we successfully appoint a candidate, so please don’t delay in submitting your application.
