Together with over 140 Network Partners, Harrow Carers is a member of The Carers Trust Network, the largest UK wide charity for the nation's 7 million unpaid carers. We provide support, information, advice and services for children, young people and adults caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend. The number of carers is a growing issue, with 3 in 5 of us likely to become a carer at some point in our lifetime. Unpaid carers save the UK economy over £132bn every year and act as a main support to our stretched health and social care systems.

Harrow Carers has a fantastic opportunity for 3 Employment Personal Advisors to deliver engaging employment support activities as part of the new Working for Carers programme. This project is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.

Your focus will be on delivering engaging activities that enable unemployed and economically inactive unpaid carers aged 25 and over across Hounslow, Hillingdon, Ealing, Harrow, Brent, Barnet, Enfield, Haringey, Hammersmith and Fulham. to address their personal barriers to entering, returning or sustaining employment. These tailored activities will include one-to-one support, peer and group activities and time-limited in-work support to enable sustainable employment. 

We are looking for warm, outgoing, highly organised people who are able to effectively manage a varied workload. Successful candidates will also have previous experience of having secured sustained employment outputs for beneficiaries.  As the post holders will also provide direct support to unpaid carers across Hounslow, Hillingdon, Ealing, Harrow, Brent, Barnet, Enfield, Haringey, Hammersmith and Fulham. it is important that they have experience of providing practical, emotional or therapeutic support to vulnerable/high need client groups and a good understanding of the needs of carers and the issues they may face. 

Applicants must be willing to work outside of office hours to manage service delivery at sites across Hounslow, Hillingdon, Ealing, Harrow, Brent, Barnet, Enfield, Haringey, Hammersmith and Fulham. (as required) and undergo screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). 

Closing date for applications is 5pm on 1st September 2017 with interviews in the week commencing 4th September 2017.
