    Leading our specialist team of Carer Wellbeing Workers is a busy but rewarding role, ideal if you are forward-thinking and understand the basics of social care. It is a pivotal post in our provider charity, essential within our wider portfolio of services. Assessment can often be step 1 in supporting a family and friend carer so our delivery must be consistently high quality, personal, sensitive and timely to meet our targets.

    Our next Team Leader can ensure we continue to offer this by leading our county-wide team of specialist Carer Assessment Wellbeing Support Workers to sustain the trend of achieving high performance in response to demand and within budget. There are no assumptions as challenges faced by carers are often complex. You can help the team combine creative solutions with simple and practical responses.
