Description

Imagine life without internet access or the IT skills to use it. For many of the older residents in our sheltered housing schemes, this is exactly what stops them from connecting with family, managing their health care or simply enjoying browsing.

You can help by facilitating basic Digital Inclusion sessions and informal 1-to-1 support sessions for older people, using a mixture of our in-house digital learning tools and online training, Learn My Way.

More than just a technical role, this involves consulting with older people to identify how the Internet might benefit them, motivating and coaching them to become digitally active and more confident.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising
  • Leadership/Management
  • Computer/Technical

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

We provide supervision, a full induction and in-house or external training to support you in your role, as well as travel and lunch expenses
