Job description

We believe everyone should be able to choose who they spend time with - and do what matters to them. We want to reduce loneliness and help make our communities more connected. We offer guidance, best practice, a community of people sharing their lives, legal advice and insurance.

This is an exciting short term role (six months fixed term contract) to coordinate a new programme in response to the Covid-19 pandemic which aims to rapidly expand the Shared Lives sector by developing a new system to recruit and assess Shared Lives carers via an online platform, and to support two partner Shared Lives schemes to scale up their offer using these new tools. This will create a platform and new ways of working which will subsequently be made available to every local Shared Lives scheme in the UK.

You will need to be confident, positive and innovative with proven experience of project development and coordination in the public or voluntary sector. You will be a great communicator including having clear and concise presentation skills aswell as have the ability to work flexibly and creatively using own initiative to resolve issues. Overall an energetic and genuine friendly team member who is willing to help and support others, enjoys meeting new people and building long lasting relationships.

JD attached.
