The National Advocacy Service for People with Disabilities is seeking to recruit a Senior Advocate for a temporary (specified purpose) contract to cover employment gap. The post will be based in Southern Region (Waterford).

NAS provides an independent, confidential and free representative advocacy service that works exclusively for people with disabilities. The service is person-centred, accountable, accessible, impartial and independent of service providers, families and other supports.

The organisation has a particular remit for adults with disabilities who are isolated from their community and services, have communication differences, are inappropriately accommodated, live in residential services, attend day services and have limited informal or natural supports.

Reports to: Regional Advocacy Manager

Salary: €47,675-53,022 (pro-rata) (It is anticipated that new entrants to the National Advocacy Service will be appointed on the 1st point of the scale, however, incremental credit, should it be awarded, will be based on previous relevant experience as set out on application form).

Location: Southern Region (Waterford)

Hours: The position is full time (35 hours per week) and may involve working some unsocial hours.

The position entails travel; therefore access to the use of a car is a requirement for the post.

The Senior Advocate will be asked to obtain Garda Clearance before they begin work.

A national panel may be formed of qualified candidates from which temporary, Senior Advocate posts which arise within the next 12 months will be filled, should vacancies arise in this period.
