The Disability Resource Centre (DRC) is one of the leading disability organisations operating in Birmingham, Solihull and the wider West Midlands. 

Our mission is ‘to build a sustainable business to empower disabled people to take control of their own lives and to actively seek out opportunities to achieve their full potential as individuals in mainstream society’.  This is at the heart of everything we do.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our forward-thinking organisation to manage the effective delivery of a new project in the Staffordshire area (Lichfield, Cannock, Tamworth & East Staffs), supporting disabled people and those with long term health conditions towards and into work. This post will involve a travel between the Staffordshire area and Kitts Green in Birmingham, therefore the successful candidate must be mobile.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and results-driven candidate with a proven track record in the successful delivery of employment and training programmes; a working knowledge of the local employment and training market; and previous experience of supporting and empowering clients towards and into work. Candidates must hold an NQF level 3 or equivalent qualification in advice and guidance and/or a relevant level 3 teacher/training qualification. The programme is funded by the Big Lottery Fund (Building Better Opportunities) and European Social Fund. The appointed individual will therefore provide high level administrative duties to ensure we comply with funders requirements. The role will involve working with other partner organisations, therefore, excellent organisation, communication and customer services skills will be required of the successful candidate.
