Your chance to help create a digitally inclusive community.

We have an exciting opportunity to work as a Digital Inclusion Officer, delivering an innovative new project in Blackpool.

Groundwork delivers a diverse portfolio of programmes. We support communities to become more active and resilient, develop and improve public spaces and build greener, safer and stronger neighbourhoods.
We are launching an innovative digital inclusion project in Blackpool in partnership with Blackpool Council. The project is designed to empower and encourage individuals who are digitally excluded or who have been isolating due to COVID restrictions. Our aim is to engage residents in a programme of support that improves their digital awareness and reduces isolation. The project will promote the loaning of digital devices through the existing library service and increase local people’s understanding of how to get online.

We are looking for someone with an excellent understanding of basic I.T. needs and using Chromebooks to access the internet and applications.  You’ll also have excellent communication skills, a high level of patience and tact and experience of working with people with complex needs.

If you believe you have the skills and experience we are looking for and are seeking a role that makes a difference to other people’s lives – we’d like to hear from you.
