Blossom Ireland is a rapidly growing organisation with big ambition. We develop pioneering programmes for young people with intellectual disabilities. We are passionate about ensuring that our young people are as prepared as possible for life as an adult. Our work has been recognised by Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, the Ireland Funds, Social Innovation Fund and Trinity College Dublin to name but a few. We operate to the highest levels of governance and we were recently awarded The Triple Lock standard by the Charities Institute Ireland.
We are currently expanding our team to include a Community Connector. You will be joining the core team of permanent staff (currently a team of 6) and will have the opportunity to input into the direction and growth of service provision.
Reporting to the Programme Director, we are looking for an enthusiastic individual who has a real passion for equality and social justice. You will be working closely with the services team to codevelop, coordinate and monitor a new and exciting programme that will see our current participants be better included in their community. You will work on a one to one basis with young people with intellectual disabilities to support them in identifying community groups or activities that they wish to partake in. In addition to this, you will work with community groups and organisations to support them in being more inclusive and aware of how to support the needs of these participants.
