Cruse Bereavement Care is the largest bereavement charity in the UK. Our mission is to offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies and to enhance society’s care of bereaved people.
Our South Hub region covers Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, West Sussex and Surrey and our bereavement support is delivered by 700 volunteers across the Hub, to over 7000 clients each year.
The role of Hub Coordinator (Contracts) based in the South Hub is a new role, which will lead on the development of our ‘Bereaved by Suicide’ project in West Sussex, as well as supporting our bereavement services across the Hub.
The ‘Bereaved by Suicide’ project in West Sussex is initially funded for 12 months. The Coordinator will be working with our local volunteer-led services to recruit volunteers to the project, ensuring clients receive the best possible support, liaising with external stakeholders, ensuring reporting requirements are met and taking client referrals into the project. This role will also support the Hub Manager to maintain an overview of funding contracts within the region and support the Hub staff team across the Hub where needed.
We are looking for someone with a passion for what we do, who will work both pro-actively and collaboratively. You will have the experience and drive to ensure our services are the best they can be, build strong working relationships with our local volunteers, Hub staff team and external stakeholders, and have the skills required to support clients bereaved by suicide.
This role will be homebased and therefore you will need a reliable internet connection and the space to work from home. When Covid restrictions are lifted, there will be a requirement for regular travel within the Hub, particularly in the West Sussex region. The post is a fixed term contract for 12 months.
Applications should be submitted by 9am on Monday 17th March. Interviews will be arranged for Thursday 25th March and conducted via Zoom. Your application should consist of a CV and covering letter, which outlines your suitability for the role in reference to the job description and person specification, and should be no longer than two pages.
Cruse welcomes and encourages applications from everyone regardless of age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
