Job description


Young Carers Co-Ordinator


Full time (37 hours) Part time hours over 30 hours per week will be considered.


Salary: £20,547 FTE


We are looking for people who are passionate about supporting young people to achieve their potential. 


The young Carers coordinator will support the team taking referrals and holding a smaller caseload of families with emerging needs.


You will need excellent communication skills and be able to be creative to seek solutions to issues facing children, young people, and their families.  You will be able to present information in a clear and concise manner suitable for a variety of audiences.  


You will have strong IT skills and be confident using databases to record your 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 surveys and the annual young carers conference.
