About us

We are a young, fast growing technology company based in Exeter, in the beautiful county of Devon.

Brain in Hand has developed innovative technology which supports people to live more independent and fulfilling lives.  Our main focus to date has been on people with Autism and Asperger’s syndrome, but we are increasingly applying this to other areas such as acquired brain injury or broader mental health conditions. We have clients all over the country and the list is growing quickly.  We work with Local Authorities, the NHS, private and third sector providers as well as individuals who use Brain in Hand by themselves.  Brain in Hand is helping them improve outcomes for users and, of course, helping users be the best that they can be!

Join our Programme Team!

 

The roles

You will be joining a highly skilled and motivated team who, whilst sharing a number of core responsibilities, each have specific areas of expertise and interests.

The roles of Programme Manager and Programme Officer are challenging, diverse and exciting.  You will principally be responsible for the delivery of training and support to a portfolio of Brain in Hand implementation sites; some of which will be inherited and some you will work to develop from inception.

Managing this process will involve working directly with potential clients in order to identify their needs, Programme Managers will develop a clear project plan and then Programme Officers will support them to deliver on that plan.

The roles call for a real balance of skills; project management, training and facilitation skills are crucial as is an understanding of the needs of vulnerable people and the organisations that support them.

Ongoing Recruitment - Specialist Trainers

 

Do you want to join a revolution, supporting individuals with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and mental health problems to use assistive technology to fulfil their potential?

Specialist Trainers: Self-Employed, UK-Wide, Competitive Hourly Rate

 

We are always interested to hear from outstanding, motivated individuals with the skills to support end-users to

  • Set-up their Brain in Hand accounts
  • identify barriers to achieving their goals
  • build strategies to overcome them
  • input their strategies and so they are available when they need them the most.

Sessions may be delivered in users’ own home, or at their place of work or education.  On occasion you may also train small teams of supporters to use the system and appropriately implement Brain in Hand into their working practices.

 

Trainers will need to have professional or personal experience of supporting those with mental health difficulties, autism or brain injury and an understanding of the impact these conditions may have on learning, confidence and independence would be very valuable in this role.

An understanding of person-centred working and solution-focused techniques is essential, as well as experience in coaching/training/mentoring individuals.  However, most important is the ability to communicate and quickly build rapport with people who might find communication difficult.

A good working knowledge of support and funding available within health/social care/education would be an advantage, but not essential.  However, you must be confident working with basic technology – iOS and android phones, downloading apps, accessing the internet on laptops/PCs, using Skype, etc.

 

This is an open-ended application process and we would currently particularly like to hear from individuals in Scotland, London and the South East.  Applicants must have their own transport.

If you are looking for an exciting new project to supplement your existing work, please register your interest with us by submitting a CV, and a short (one-side of A4 max) covering letter outlining your suitability for the role, to Sarah Todd on info@braininhand.co.uk

  • Brain in Hand has helped me to solve all sorts of problems by myself, which has really built my confidence. For example, I have an issue with eye contact when I talk with friends. To solve this, I plan in advance what I can say to a person, which is something I put into my Brain in Hand.
