About the job
You can make a difference for deafblind people.
Each year, Sense supports up to 300 deafblind people of all ages, on our programme of holidays, short breaks and leisure clubs. We are seeking to expand to reach more deafblind people and their families.
As Deputy Head of Holidays & Volunteering you will develop and deliver, in conjunction with deafblind people and others, a three year strategic plan that will ensure Sense meets its objective of expanding our well established holiday & short break programme. You will develop income generation strategies that enable us to be more innovative, and reach more people. You will ensure the safe and effective delivery of a range of holiday and leisure programmes across England and Wales, with the support of a small committed staff team, around thirty sessional staff, and an extensive network of enthusiastic volunteers. You will take a lead role in the national team that is responsible for volunteering, holidays, and short breaks in Sense. This includes active participation in horizon scanning and strategic planning, team management, cross organisation influencing, engagement with other networks and organisations, and deputising for the Head of the team.
You will ensure our services are person centred, and offer deafblind people opportunities to try new things, do things they enjoy and meet new people in a safe and supportive environment.
