Permanent, Part-time, 28 hours (4 days) per week
Job description

Our advice team supports nearly 4,000 kinship carers each year with expert advice. We’re looking for an accomplished leader and manager to lead our growing advice and information team. As part of our new three-year strategy (2022–2025), we’re focusing on developing our high-quality, user-centred services to support more kinship carers when they need it most.

You’ll be an excellent manager, supporting your team to unlock their potential, develop new skills and pilot new channels of support and information (online chat, legal advice, and web content, among others). Our new Kinship Compass project is about developing clear and easy-to-access pathways to advice and information and peer support across local kinship communities. As our Advice and Information Manager, you’ll work closely with your team to support this project, taking the lead on developing the advice and information pathway.

We are growing and so is the need for our kinship carers. You’ll be a dynamic, thoughtful leader supporting a passionate and committed team.

You’ll work with our Online Service Innovation Manager to continuously improve the service, embrace digital solutions and create efficiencies and processes to drive performance and increase our ability to provide more support to kinship carers across England and Wales.

In this role, you'll work 28 hours (4 days) per week, and we offer flexibility so you can fit your home life around your job (which is really important to us).

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 voices 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.

In return, we offer 30 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays (pro rata if part-time) and a pension.
