Camden Carers is a charity organisation that provides support and services to informal carers within the London Borough of Camden.

Carers play a vital role in our community and they have been at the forefront of the response to the coronavirus pandemic. Many people who have someone who depends on them for support don’t consider themselves a carer yet they are fundamental to the effort to keep people safe throughout this crisis.

Main Purpose of the Role:

Carers play a vital role in our community and they have been at the forefront of the response to the coronavirus pandemic. Many people who have someone who depends on them for support don’t consider themselves a carer yet they are fundamental to the effort to keep people safe throughout this crisis.

This is exciting opportunity to join our dynamic team at Camden Carers and make a difference to the lives of people and families in Camden. We are looking for a hardworking, enthusiastic and flexible team member who is able to adapt to the ever changing and challenging times we find ourselves currently in.

As a part of the Support & Wellbeing Team, you will be required to identify informal carers from all communities in the London Borough of Camden, who care for a family member, partner or friend with Mental Health. You will provide relevant and appropriate support, information and advocacy to informal carers.  

You will need proven experience of delivering provision within a related field and working with people and/or community groups; in particular we are keen to find someone with experience in Mental Health. More details can be found in the job application pack on our website.

Camden Carers values the diversity of its community and aims to have a workforce that reflects this. We therefore encourage applications from all sections of the community. We would like to encourage people who have been or are currently carers to apply. We are committed to ensuring that all employees and job applicants are provided with equality of opportunity in employment.

Deadline for applications: Midnight 18th April 2021
