Intact is looking to recruit a dynamic, enthusiastic person with a ‘Can Do Attitude’ and a ‘Positive Outlook’ on life to deliver an exceptional digital Inclusion service for Ingol, Tanterton and the wider Preston area.

Reporting to the Training and Employment Lead, the post holder will be responsible for delivering a digital inclusion service that enables digitally excluded beneficiaries to get online and 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 create a friendly and fun learning environment, working with people from all walks of life in one of the most deprived neighbourhoods in Preston. Beneficiaries will learn new skills, become connected online, reduce their social isolation, and access a host of online services relevant to them, helping them to become digitally included within society. 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 and you will be part of a very dedicated and motivated staff team committed to excellence and making a real difference. The digital inclusion service at intact is well established, with a good reputation for participation in national events, discussions, networking events and initiatives to promote Digital Inclusion such as ‘Get Online Week.’

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.
