CACE is a trusted community resource which has been operating in the Cumbernauld and Northern Corridor areas for over 30 years. We work to prevent loneliness and isolation, supporting older people and their carers to live well in the community on their own terms. We do this through a programme of activities, groups, and outings, door-to-door community transport, and a well-established befriending programme.

We are seeking a warm, creative and engaging individual to help us provide fulfilling and accessible sessions for groups of older people.

As the Service Support Team Lead you will be responsible for our changing programme of activities and ensuring that the people who come to our groups are well supported.

Providing supervisory support to a small but dedicated team of support workers and volunteers, you will ensure a consistently high quality, person-centred service. You'll work closely with people and their loved ones to explore interests, identify opportunities and develop engrossing activities.

You must be a keen advocate for older people, passionate about ensuring they are empowered to remain active within our community. You’ll communicate this enthusiasm when engaging with established and potential partners to develop relationships and explore new opportunities.

Location: Primarily based in Cumbernauld, Northern Corridor and surrounding areas. Trips with groups outside the local area as required by the service and attendance at external meetings and events. Occasional home-working may be available for specific pieces of work by prior agreement, but due to the size of our team and nature of our work, no roles at CACE are compatible with substantial home-working.
