12-month fixed term contract with possible extension

We are seeking two excellent candidates to join our growing and dynamic team of Carers Caseworkers.

The successful candidate will support this hidden army by providing a confidential listening ear and one-to-one information and advice, including carrying out carers assessments and creating individual support plans, tailored to each carer’s needs. They will also develop excellent working relationships with partner organisations, to raise awareness of carers’ rights and needs.

Based in our Westminster office, with significant work remotely in the community, either in the City of Westminster or in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

The ability to speak a community language would be advantageous.

Carers Network is a charity. We are an equal opportunity employer and service provider that recognises and celebrates diversity. We are a London Living Wage employer.
