YHRCN Coordinator Disability Programme

Posted on 19 November 2020

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 one 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.

Informal enquiries about this post may be directed to Professor Paul Gready, email; paul.gready@york.ac.uk 

For further information on the network and annual indicator reports, please take a look at the YHRCN website
