Aspire is a national charity that provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury.  

Through its projects and programmes, Aspire offers support to the 50,000 people living with a spinal cord injury in the UK. To deliver this we employ around 130 remarkable people. We are proud to be 27th in the Sunday Times list of Top 100 Not-for-Profit Organisations to work for in 2019.

Aspire is a Disability Confident Leader and we actively look to recruit disabled people.  If you require support to complete your application or have any queries please contact Tasha Webster, Director of Operations via email [email protected] or by telephone 020 8420 6716.

Assistive Technologist / Trainer - Cardiff 14 hours per week

Every four hours, someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. Many of those who are injured will lose the ability to access standard computer and phone technology. The Aspire Assistive Technology Programme gives them back that independence.

This role will build on the work already being carried out by our staff, volunteers and the NHS team and will ensure that patients going through their rehabilitation can work with a dedicated member of Aspire staff who will help them access computers, tablets and phones. 

This post will work closely with patients and the NHS teams; excellent communication skills, an ability to build relationships with people from diverse backgrounds and the confidence to work autonomously are essential. The role is based primarily at the Spinal Injury Centre in Cardiff, but will also require some travel to other locations in the region from time to time.

You will probably already have experience of Assistive Technology, either as a trainer or user, and have a desire to use this knowledge to improve people's independence.
