JobSense Project

It’s an exciting time for the Centre of Sign-Sight-Sound (COS) as we begin a new two-year employment project working with key partners Elite Specialist Employment Agency, Merthyr Tydfil Institute for the Blind and Agoriad Cyf, to deliver the JobSense project over the next 2 years, which aims to support people with sensory loss (those who are deaf, have hearing loss, blind, have sight loss or are deafblind) into work.

Answering to the JobSense Manager, the Project Compliance will be responsible for providing a full support service to the delivery team and ensuring all monitoring information in line with the Operations Manual is completed effectively and delivered to the JobSense Manager for submission to the overall JobSense Project Manager. You will play a key role in the successful running of this European Social Fund project.

The role requires someone who is experienced at delivering effective administrative support and has a good attention to detail.

You’ll also be used to working independently under your own initiative, with the ability to plan and prioritise your workload effectively.

You will also be passionate about making a difference to the lives of people who have sensory loss.

This scheme has been supported by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government www.gov.wales/eu-funding
