About the role

One of our goals is to enable Young Carers (YC) and Young Adult Carers (YAC) to overcome some of the challenges they face in a creative and solution-focused way. This may involve working with a whole family approach and utilising community assets to support and improve well-being and reduce agreed-identified needs.

Working as a team member within our Young Carers and Young Adult Carers Service, you will have the opportunity to assess and support identified carers working alongside them to develop life skills which support positive future outcomes.

As part of this role you will:

  • need to travel independently across the county
  • have a flexible approach to working hours to meet service needs
  • be working with carers (aged 11-18 years) and their families
  • develop and facilitate needs led one to one and group interventions and activities.

About you

We are seeking an enthusiastic and proactive adviser who has the skills and experience to make a difference. Someone with the confidence to work on their own initiative alongside being a motivated member of our team.

You will have:

  • communication skills to build/maintain working relationships with stakeholders
  • organisational skills to manage and maintain an evolving caseload
  • experience engaging with children and young people
  • confidence to provide respite and wellbeing opportunities across the county.

If you do not feel you currently have all of the skills but are enthusiastic to work within our service, please still apply as learning development and support will be provided.

But why work for us?

For over 35 years Suffolk Family Carers have been helping family carers of all ages across Suffolk get the support they need to live fuller lives. We provided information, advice and guidance to thousands of family carers each year and is recognised nationally as the GSK Impact Award winner 2019.

Our credible representation of family carers’ needs enables us to campaign on issues that affect them, to ensure their voices are heard. We will keep driving change across society to enable family carers to have a life of their own alongside their caring role.

We offer some great employee benefits, which include:

  • flexible working and hybrid working opportunities
  • enhanced annual leave entitlement
  • competitive salary
  • various wellbeing at work initiatives.
