Job description

Our new national Peer Support Service is working with thousands of kinship carers and kinship carer volunteers to create a network of support groups across England. Funded by the Department for Education, this new service is game changing for kinship carers. The support groups enable kinship carers to connect with other kinship carers, and offer them a safe space to share experiences, learn from each other and provide emotional support.

To support the peer support service, our specialist Advice Team offer expert information and advice to support groups through facilitating themed online workshops. You'll be responsible for designing and delivering these workshops. You'll also provide advice to carers on a one-to-one basis on the phone or online.

We’re particularly looking for someone with knowledge of advice enquiry areas such as welfare benefits, financial support, housing, employment, children’s services, childcare and/or education.

You’ll also be a confident and engaging presenter. Ideally you’ll have experience running online advice workshops, but if you have other transferable experience, please ensure you demonstrate this in your application.

There are up to three roles available for 21 - 35 hours per week depending on the requirements of the candidate. We can be flexible around when these hours are worked.

When applying, please address the following questions in your cover statement:

  • Why do you want to work for Kinship?
  • How does your experience match the job description (specifically in relation to your experience of advice work and then workshop development and facilitation?
  • What do you think good workshop facilitation looks like?
  • What’s your ‘why’? (What motivates you at work)

Location: Home-based or London office-based (Vauxhall)

Hours: Part-time or full-time - between 21 and 35 hours per week

Contract: 16-month fixed-term with possibility of extension, dependent on funding

Benefits: 30 days annual leave plus bank holidays (pro rata) and pension

Closing date: 2pm on Weds 31 August

Interview date: Weds 7 September

About Kinship:

Kinship is the leading charity in England and Wales for kinship carers – relatives and friends who raise children when their parents aren’t able to. We offer kinship carers expert advice as well as financial, legal, practical and emotional support and understanding from the moment they need it, for as long as they need it. We’re always there to help with the complicated and stressful decisions that so many kinship families have to make, as well as to celebrate the good times.

Working alongside kinship carers and the children they raise, with their voice and views at the fore, we build communities of support and give everything we have to fight for each family and their rights, as well as to raise awareness of kinship care and secure better support for all those playing this critical role.
