We’re looking for an enthusiastic and committed individual to join the LA team at our HQ currently based in Chelmsford.


Services Support Officer

Part-Time 21 hours/3 days

Salary £19,000 - £20,500 gross pa full time equivalent depending on experience (actual £11,400 - £12,300)


The Limbless Association is a long standing charity based in Chelmsford, Essex, which through its stakeholder networks extends its reach as an organisation operating and connecting nationally. The LA aims to support amputees, whatever their non-medical needs, from the point of consultation and preoperative assessment through to post-operative recovery and rehabilitation. The loss of a limb or limbs, through accident or illness is a devastating and life changing experience that affects the individual and their families. Consequently issues can be multiple, complex and severe. Here at the LA we champion lives beyond limb loss and believe that all amputees should have unparalleled support to lead independent and fulfilled lives.


The LA operates with a small friendly team working out of the Chelmsford office, a dedicated Trustee Board and an army of volunteers.


The Services Support Officer (SSO) is a key role in the charity, with responsibility for the administration and coordinating of all LA services as well as supporting other roles within the team. As the initial point of contact within the organisation the SSO will run our information support line, providing all our stakeholders with excellent customer service at all times. The SSO will also lead on coordinating the LA’s peer volunteers. No hour, day or week is the same and this role requires a highly organised and efficient person with considerable experience and expertise in a customer service focused environment. Experience of service delivery and an advisory role in a health care setting is also highly desirable.


The charity has some exciting plans to develop and grow over the next few years and it’s essential that members of the LA team are driven by and passionate about the cause we champion.
