Glasgow North East Carers Centre provides supports and services to unpaid family Carers who look after a family member or friend who cannot manage alone due to illness or disability, including Young Carers and their families.

We are looking to recruit a Young Carer Worker who will help us deliver, develop and expand our services to Young Carers and their families throughout the North East of Glasgow.

The successful candidate will work with Young Carers and their families to help identify and provide services personalised to their own situation and experiences. This could include supports such as information and advice, emotional supports and breaks from caring delivered via a range of methods including on a one to one basis, family supports and groupwork activities.

The post is a flexible 35hr working week as it includes evening work, and occasionally weekend hours may be required.

A driving licence and use of a car is essential for the post.

All successful candidates are required to join the PVG Scheme (or to have their membership updated).

This project is possible thanks to funds raised by Players of People’s Postcode Lottery
