Role

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.
