The Transforming Autism Project is seeking a volunteer to join our team as our new Delivery Lead.
The Transforming Autism Project is a brand-new charity focusing on very early intervention for children with autism with a view to making transformative life-long changes that would not be possible later. We challenge the traditional understanding of autism and propose an inspiring, hopeful and truly empowering perspective. For more details, see our TED talk.
We are planning a revolutionary new early intervention autism clinic based on Israel’s pioneering Mifne Centre (see one family’s story here), and also a comprehensive online Hub of resources and inspiration for parents and carers of autistic children.
To find out more about our goals, values and activities, please view our brochure.
Although we are currently new and very small, we will need to grow quickly in order to make progress towards our large-scale goals. We are therefore – through our wonderful volunteers – building a strong professional team so that we can put the infrastructure in place to have the scope to generate and cope with rapid growth.
We need passion, energy and some know-how in pushing our 2 key projects forward. The idea of this role is to oversee and guide any project managers working on our projects (though please do also apply if you have a lot to offer to just one of the projects, and state this in your application – then we can consider together how this could work). It is also to help unblock any issues, see ways forward, and feed into the overall strategy of the charity.
You will have strong experience of projects similar to at least one of our key ones, and this will likely be in the Not for Profit sector. Ideally, you will also have overseen a portfolio of projects run by others and have a strong network that can help us to move ours forward.
We are a strongly values-driven organisation, and are committed to manifesting our values in how we relate to each other, in what we are trying to achieve and in how we do it. You will be in complete resonance with these and dedicated to bringing them into all of your work and interactions.

How Many Hours?
This is flexible and can be discussed, however for a key role such as this, our experience is that it requires at a minimum at least 10 hours or so spread through the week.
The Transforming Autism Project is dedicated to helping create a world where all people are valued and treated according to their inner essential humanity rather than according to the many labels that each of us could wear (or that could be attached to us). We are thus naturally an equal opportunities organisation.
