Suffolk Family Carers is a respected charity that is passionate about creating solutions to meet the needs of family carers of all ages. We provide a range of services to support adult, young adult and young carers across Suffolk.

We support young adult carers aged 14 - 25, and are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, proactive and driven Young Adult Carer Adviser who can enable young adult carers and their families to overcome some of the challenges they face in a creative and solution focused way.

The role will predominantly be working with young people aged 14-25 in the Ipswich locality.

Excellent relationship building skills are required to develop working relationships with education staff and community partners to raise awareness of the needs of young adult carers. You will support colleges in implementing creative, sustainable best practise support for their young adult carers. In addition, you will plan and facilitate respite activities across the county and support delivery of personal development workshops / programmes. You will need to be motivated about enabling young people to develop their self-confidence and future aspirations, working innovatively to ensure the support is engaging, age appropriate and co-produced wherever possible.

We are seeking a proactive individual who has the skills and experience of engaging with Young Adults on a 1:1 and group basis. You will be required to travel to locations across Suffolk and be available for evening and occasional weekend or residential working.

There is flexibility around working hours as well as attractive employee benefits. Suffolk Family Carers is located on a rural business park, easily accessible from the A14 and 4 miles from Ipswich.
