We wish to recruit two Independent Advocates working from our office in Newport. This will involve regular travel throughout the Gwent area and occasionally to our head office in Pontypridd. The successful applicant will need to be dynamic and self-motivated and fiercely committed to the rights of disabled people and to the value of advocacy. You will be computer literate with a high standard of written and verbal communication.

As an Independent Advocate you will be working with individuals to ensure their voices are heard in decisions that affect them and ensuring their rights are upheld. The postholder must be confident in supporting and representing individual disabled people in a variety of situations and in respect of diverse issues.

The postholders will be members of our small team based at our satellite office in Newport. Dewis C.I.L is an independent voluntary organisation with an integrated management committee of disabled and non-disabled people. We particularly encourage disabled people and people with direct experience of disability to apply. This post is subject to a satisfactory DBS check.
