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.

The National Advocacy Service is provided through four regions and a National Office which is based in Dublin.

Location:     Midlands North East Region

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

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

The successful applicant will be asked to obtain Garda Clearance before they begin work.

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