About the Role
The role of the Pathways Project Manager is to lead on an exciting new project funded by the City Bridge Trust ‘Bridge to Work’ (BtW) programme which aims to tackle the disproportionately high level of unemployment amongst young disabled Londoners. CAE will be supporting young disabled Londoners into careers in inclusive design and accessible environments through training, job shadowing, CPD and networking opportunities. We know that there are currently limited opportunities for young (disabled) people to move into careers in access and inclusive design, and this project will help develop the next generation of access professionals. It also underpins our vision to help create more accessible environments.
Our ideal candidate will have a broad understanding of disabilities or experience of supporting young people with disabilities. You will have experience if working within a project or coordinator role and have a track record of providing high quality support to deliver successful projects. In addition, excellent attention to detail, the ability to prioritise and organise and fantastic communication skills will be crucial to your success in the role.
Closing date for the position is Monday 31 August 2020
