Up for a new challenge? Want to make a difference?

Love young people and are good at listening?

Self-motivated and like to keep busy?

We are looking for a Young Carer Support Worker to join our team. Covering all ages from 5 to 25 this will be a busy and varied job covering raising awareness within schools, working with families & providing 1-1 support with a young person. One day might be spent encouraging a young person to open up, the next you might be delivering wellbeing parcels or organising school holiday fun activities. You will be working across all age groups, whether supporting someone in Primary School or helping a Young Adult get into University, College, Apprenticeships or their first job.

The successful applicant will need to be an enthusiastic individual that delivers; a self-starter with excellent communication and organisation skills. You need to be passionate about making a difference to young carers and their families but also able to demonstrate what that difference is.

You will be completely working from home initially but must be able to travel to our offices in Milngavie (less than 25 minutes from Glasgow centre by train) and throughout East Dunbartonshire. As restrictions ease, you may still be able to partly remote-work on an ongoing basis.
