We have started our new roles and are recruiting for 2 new people to join the team.
Gary and Rachel are both Membership and Engagement leads. Their jobs are to make sure Learning Disability England is working with members, partners, and the wider community helping them to
• represent themselves and their ideas
• create and run campaigns
• learn from each other
• share their best and most effective ways of working
Gary also has a lead role as spokesperson as part of us making sure people with learning disabilities are supported to speak up and represent themselves.
Both of them work part time for Learning Disability England so might not be available every day but will get back to you soon.
Gary is looking for a new Personal Assistant to work with him as his PA Bridget has a new job with Learning Disability England.
