Young Carers Support Advisor
Full time (37 hours) Part time will be considered over 30 hours per week
We are looking for people with excellent communication skills to work with young carers and their families. You will be friendly and able to demonstrate creative ways to seek solutions for issues young carers and their families might be facing. We ask that you can present information in a clear and concise manner suitable for a variety of audiences.
You need to be able to use various IT skills confidently with key tasks being using databases to record work, understanding the need for clear record keeping that demonstrates your understanding of the situation and allows others to work in partnership. Previous experience of using Families First, Outcome Stars or similar tools will be an advantage but is not essential.
As a carer led organisation Carers in Hertfordshire believes that the voice of the carer is central to everything we do, so you will be able to ensure young carers voices are heard at every level, whether this is in planning the care for them and their family or in the planning of services that affect them. You will contribute to this through supporting the work of the young carers council, encouraging feedback on support as well as regular activities and the annual young carers conference.
