Are you somebody who would love to help people in Northern Ireland with the UK’s most common cause of sight loss?

Every day, around 300 people are diagnosed with macular disease. It’s the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK. Macular disease is cruel and isolating. It steals your sight, your independence, and your ability to do the things you love.

The Macular Society is working to deliver our ultimate ambition – to Beat Macular Disease for the next generation. We are determined to end the fear and isolation of macular disease with world-class research and the best advice and support.

We run a busy Advice and Information line, Counselling Service, fund research, campaign for improvements and provide volunteer-delivered services. We have over 400 local peer support groups across the UK and more launch each year. An exciting opportunity has arisen within our Services team working with our support groups and volunteers. This position will recruit, train, develop and support local Macular Society groups and volunteers across The Western and Southern Health and Social Care Trust areas. Your important role will be to help us strengthen our network in these Trust areas.

You will have access to a car for regular travel

There will be occasional overnight stays, out of hours and weekend work, however we have a flexible approach to how you manage your time to achieve great results.

We are an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons.
