The Dixon Community South East Carers Centre. On behalf of the Glasgow City Carers Partnership

Glasgow South East Carers Centre provides services to unpaid family Carers, who look after a family member or friend who cannot manage alone due to illness or disability, including Young Carers and their families.

Working alongside our Carers Support Workers and directly with Carers, our TPSC will identify training and peer support opportunities which will enable Carers to manage their caring role and maintain their own health and wellbeing.

Whilst delivering peer support groups directly, the TPSC will source appropriate providers for other training opportunities. Training programmes will be innovative and continually developing, including those available online.

Although experience is desirable, a willingness and commitment to learning is key, underpinned by strong admin, communication and organisational skills.

Delivering key supports and services to Carers during the current pandemic, the successful candidate will support our work via a mix of both home and office working.

The successful candidate will have a firm understanding and appreciation of unpaid family Carers, their roles, contribution and value to our communities. The focus for this post will be working with young carers and their families in the community.

Applicants must have an understanding of and commitment to the needs of carers, have excellent written and oral communication skills, have experience of developing support plans, providing an information and advice service, planning and delivery of services to support carers and have a knowledge and understanding of the policy drivers for unpaid carers, especially in relation to the Carers Act. An understanding of the welfare benefits system and a valid driving licence is desirable.
