    Seescape, (formerly Fife Society for the Blind) will offer a nine month paid placement that will boost workplace skills and experience for people who have struggled to find work due to sight loss.

    It forms part of the national Get Set Progress internship programme set up by Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT). The scheme will give a blind or partially sighted person an invaluable opportunity to enter the job market and will mean that a quarter of Seescape’s staff will have visual impairments.

    Currently, only one in four people who are registered blind in Scotland are in employment.  Seescape is delivering the Get Set Progress internship programme in Fife with support from TPT and RNIB, and the post is jointly funded by TPT, the Hospital Saturday Fund and Seescape.

    Get Set Progress provides paid internship opportunities for blind and partially sighted people who are starting out in their careers or returning to work following a career break.

    The intern will gain first-hand experience of supporting others with sight loss, including supporting clients in their homes, working with volunteers and developing administrative and IT skills.

    Interested candidates can contact Seescape’s Sight Support Team Leader Evelyn Hickman at: [email protected] for more information.

    The closing date for applications is Tuesday 05 December 2023
