Carers Trust is the largest UK wide charity for the nation’s 7 million unpaid carers. Together with our Network Partners, 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. Carers save the UK economy over £119bn every year and act as a main support to our stretched health and social care systems.
We are currently looking for a Compliance & Quality Assurance Officer to support the Working for Carers project. Working for Carers supports carers and former carers across London to find, or move closer, to employment. Support is tailored to meet individual carers’ needs but may include one-to-one support with an advisor, and access to a range of training and volunteering opportunities. The project is led by Carers Trust and delivered in partnership with Network Partners (carers services) in London.
The successful candidate will have experience of working on a large, target-driven project, and experience of being responsible for meeting compliance requirements for finance claims and project activity. They will have good communication skills, with the ability to support others to meet compliance requirements and work as a team to meet tight deadlines. They will have well-developed numeracy skills and excellent attention to detail, as well as extensive working knowledge of Microsoft Excel. This is a great opportunity for someone interested in joining a vibrant organisation and successful, cross organisational team.
Working for Carers is jointly funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund as part of the Building Better Opportunities programme. This is a significant but time-limited project, focused on developing and delivering new services for unemployed and economically inactive carers across London. For this reason, this post is offered as a fixed term contract until 30 September 2022.
