The Centre for Applied Human Rights (CAHR), as part of the York Human Rights City Network (YHRCN), wishes to recruit a Coordinator for the YHRCN’s disability programme. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a dynamic strand of the YHRCN’s work and deliver on the promise of York becoming the UK’s first human rights city.
This part time (0.4FTE) post will last a year, and focus on an exciting programme of work associated with disability rights in the city. You will work with CAHR and the YHRCN on three main strands of work: to support the establishment of a sustainable York Disability Rights Forum; undertake work on Community Voices, a City of York Council funded programme looking to engage with communities in the city not reached by conventional consultation processes - for the coming year our focus is on disabled people; and contributing to YHRCN’s annual Indicator Report, in particular with regard to disability matters. The role requires a range of skills, including training, networking, research (especially participatory research), volunteer management, events management, social media and IT, communication and advocacy and, crucially, requires a core commitment to co-production ways of working.
Applications from disabled people or their allies are particularly welcome.
Interview date: 18 December 2020
