Do you want to help disabled people improve their digital literacy? Technology plays an important role in the lives of people with learning disabilities, helping them connect with the world in ways that weren’t previously possible.

We need an experienced and motivated facilitator to plan and run engaging group sessions to teach people how to confidently use technology.

You’ll advise and guide our students in their use of devices, helping them communicate, find information, and learn the digital skills to enjoy hobbies like listening to music, playing games, and creating art.

Share is a registered charity and a centre for training and wellbeing. We provide a range of programmes helping adults with learning disabilities, autism and other support needs become more happy, healthy and independent. Our vision is a world where disabled people are fully included in society, living the life they choose, and we need talented people to help us make that happen.

Who we’re looking for

  • You’ve worked with people with learning disabilities and autism, and you understand how crucial it is that they’re not digitally excluded
  • You appreciate the power of digital knowledge to positively transform people’s lives and you’re adept and competent using different technologies to help people learn and grow
  • You’re self-motivated with the commitment and initiative to think on your feet and solve problems
  • You have the energy, creativity and empathy to inspire those around you and help them reach their goals
  • Most importantly, you have a strong commitment to making sure disabled people have equal access to all aspects of life
