Senior WAM Project Officer

AHEAD is now recruiting a Senior WAM Project Officer to join its team.


The Senior WAM Project Officer will participate in a diverse range of activities including engaging with stakeholders, organising and managing employer training events both on and offline, and contributing to and developing best practice guidelines for inclusive recruitment.

This role would suit somebody with a proven ability to communicate messages effectively in a variety of contexts, e.g. presenting at events, delivering training, and facilitating meetings, and a demonstrable background and knowledge of issues concerning disability and the workplace, assistive technology, etc.

The successful candidate will be an honest and reliable professional with a willingness to support colleagues during busy periods, and the ability to work on their own initiative to identify and achieve improvements. You should have good IT skills including database management (Excel), word processing and associated report formatting, and, ideally, knowledge of content management systems such as Mailchimp and WordPress. Previous experience of conducting needs assessments with people with disabilities in order to determine support requirements would be a distinct advantage.

If you’re a team-player with a genuine interest in AHEAD’s mission, experience building and managing relationships with a variety of stakeholders, strong organisational skills, and an understanding of event coordination, we’d love to hear from you!
