Intact is looking to recruit a dynamic, enthusiastic person with a ‘Can Do Attitude’ and a ‘Positive Outlook’ on life. Reporting to the Training and Employment Lead, the post holder will be responsible for delivering an exceptional digital inclusion service, that enables digitally excluded beneficiaries to get on-line and for those already on-line to improve their I.T. capabilities. Working with a team of Digital Champion volunteers the post holder will advocate the benefits of digital inclusion, run an established UK online service and develop innovative ways to deliver learning to those most digitally excluded.

The post holder will work with both younger and older people from one of the most deprived neighbourhoods in Preston, helping them to become digitally included within society. Beneficiaries will learn new skills, become connected on-line and reduce their social isolation, and access a host of on-line services relevant to them, in a friendly and fun environment. This learning will be delivered in a variety of ways ranging from 1-2-1 work; group work and bespoke training sessions.

This is an opportunity to join a thriving community based organisation. With a recently built 2 storey annexe to our existing building, this is a very exciting time to be joining our team. We are looking for the right person to take this project into the future, maximising our brand new resource and making a positive difference to the lives of local people. You will be part of a very dedicated and motivated staff team committed to excellence and making a real difference. This is a permanent post subject to funding.

This post is jointly funded by The Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund. This is a Building Better Opportunities (BBO) funded project to deliver the BBO promoting Digital Inclusion in Lancashire, called ReachIT.
