Would you like to help create a world without barriers for deaf children and young people?
The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people.
We are seeking a dynamic person to take a lead role in building knowledge and awareness of both specialist products and mainstream products (such as mobile apps) to transform the lives of deaf children and young people.

In this post, you will be critically reviewing and identifying emerging user needs and gaps in provision. You will also internally and externally champion the opportunities to fulfil these through new products and initiatives.
We are looking for someone that has excellent networking and relationship-building skills and the ability to use these to fulfil strategic and operational goals. You may come from a technology or information or policy background. Whatever your background you will have significant experience of working with a range of partners – e.g. statutory, commercial and voluntary organizations.
You will be an effective communicator – able to create engaging technology content for information resources and from social media, to presentations and management reports.If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
