Charity registered in Scotland SC027000
Carers of East Lothian supports all adults in a caring situation in East Lothian to get information and services to help their individual caring role, enhance their own wellbeing, and strengthen their collective voice to improve services.
Carers of East Lothian is the leading local support organisation for people who are looking after friends or family who are frail, disabled or who have chronic health problems. We have an excellent reputation and are now looking to recruit a new Carer Support Worker to join our committed team. You should have a good understanding of health and social care issues and services, experience of providing person centred support and a real commitment to supporting carers to achieve the outcomes they prioritise. You must have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, be comfortable in the use of IT and have the ability to organise and manage a complex caseload. In return we offer a good salary, very flexible working arrangements and a chance to make a real difference to peoples’ lives. PVG scheme membership is essential as is the ability to drive and access to a car. The post will initially be based in Musselburgh but we are moving to offices in the new Community Hospital in Haddington around Sept of this year.
Carers of East Lothian is striving to be an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.

This is an exciting new project aimed at tackling loneliness amongst residents of the North Berwick Costal ward area. The Project Worker will work closely with GP Practices, local organisations and volunteers to identify and support isolated people. You must be enthusiastic and self-reliant and have excellent interpersonal skills and experience of working with other organisation to achieve the best for people. In return we offer a good salary, flexible working arrangements and a great opportunity to play a significant role in the development of this project and to make a real difference to peoples’ lives. PVG scheme membership is essential as is the ability to drive and access to a car.
North Berwick Costal Health and Wellbeing Association has initial funding for a 12 month pilot project but we hope to be able to obtain longer term funding. The Association will lead development of the project and is being supported by Carers of East Lothian who will formally employ the project worker. We are striving to be an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
