We are keen to recruit an experienced and enthusiastic person who can provide high quality advice on all aspects of dyslexia and other associated SpLDs.
The Helpline service sits at the heart of our charity and has been providing information, advice and guidance since 1971.
The Helpline Team supports dyslexic people of all ages, in all situations (studying, workplace etc), as well as those who think they may have dyslexia. It also advises parents/carers, educators, employers and the wider community.
We expect the successful applicant to become another valued member of The Dyslexia Association Team.
We believe this position requires a person who has considerable experience of working in the field of dyslexia and who can listen in order to understand what is needed before offering the most appropriate response.
We are looking for a non-judgemental individual who offers a balance of compassion and objectivity.
The right candidate will be self-assured with a polite and confident attitude and comfortable representing TDA in a good light at all times and in all interactions. Experience in communicating positively and assertively with people at all levels is essential.
