Two new roles at Bristol Disability Equality Forum

The Forum is at an exciting period of development that is seeing it develop a range of community development projects to support Disabled people, to ensure their needs are met, and to extend the scope of their voice and influence. 

As part of these developments, we are delighted and excited to offer two new paid roles at the Forum, totalling 1.5 FTE.  These are permanent posts, subject to continued funding being available. 

They are:

  1. Deputy Manager – 0.5FTE.
  2. Citywide Community Development Worker, working with those Disabled people who identify as CEV – 1 FTE.

New Extended Deadline for applications: Wednesday 17th August.

[Please note, all applications must be submitted using our Application Form; no CVs will be accepted.]

Interviews: Week beginning Monday 5th September.

Criteria and flexibility notes:

a. It is an occupational requirement under the Equality Act 2010 that the successful applicant for each post identifies as a Disabled person.  This means any applicant who doesn’t identify as a Disabled person will not be considered for the roles.

b. If a suitably experienced Disabled person meets the criteria for the half-time Deputy role and the full-time Community Development worker role, we are happy to consider a partial combination of the two.  We are also open to applications for the Community Development role on a job share basis. 

However, be aware that we cannot promise that an applicant will get the combination of roles, or the Community Development worker job share they would prefer, as it will depend on the applications received and the best interests of the work to be undertaking.

c. As those who are Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) are underrepresented within the Forum, we particularly welcome applications from Disabled people within these communities.

Please indicate whether you would consider a job share [You don’t have to be willing to consider it].

Completed applications should be returned to:

If you would like to discuss the post before applying, email well before the deadline as her post is only half-time.
