Community Partner Specialist (four separate specialist roles)
Community Partner Specialist Positions Open for Applications
Following the recruitment for the Lead Community Partner role announced in Improving Lives: the Work and Health Green Paper, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is welcoming applications for Specialist Community Partners. These posts will be based in small teams working alongside Young Persons and Mental Health Community Partners.
About the roles
The Learning Disabilities and Neurodiverse Conditions Community Partner will work collaboratively with the third sector in strengthening awareness and understanding of disability and health conditions within Jobcentre Plus. This includes enhancing the support offered to customers with a late-onset or deterioration of a disability or health condition.
The Pan-Disability Community Partner will provide valuable insight and expert advice on disability and health conditions and the barriers faced by people; strengthening the understanding of Jobcentre Plus staff, partners and potential employers.
The Drugs and Alcohol Dependency Community Partner will use their expertise to work in partnership with Jobcentre Plus staff to deliver an enhanced level of support to meet the needs and aspirations of those with a dependency on drugs and alcohol and other related mental health issues.
The Musculoskeletal Conditions Community Partner will use their expertise to enhance the support offered to customers with musculoskeletal conditions that include arthritis, back pain and a range of other conditions affecting muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
Each of these roles will help to shape the support people with these conditions receive by developing a national mentoring network and building relationships with specialist organisations in the local area.
For these opportunities, you may be interested in a fixed-term appointment opportunity or a secondment from your current organisation. Both fixed-term appointments and secondments are available for 12 months with a possible extension for a further 11 months. Organisations are also invited to offer secondment opportunities to their staff.
