Location: Bow Road Methodist Church Reports to: Zacchaeus Project Manager
The Zacchaeus Project has been run for 23 years by Tower Hamlets Methodist Circuit, delivering support primarily for older people and their carers to help improve health and well-being and combat social exclusion in our local community. We provide various services usually on Monday to Friday for around 150 service users with 2 staff and 20 volunteers. We have been successful in securing National Lottery Community funding until February 2023 to expand and formalise the advice and guidance provision.
We are now looking to hire a full time Advice and Guidance Coordinator, who will:
- set up the function within the project
- act as the advice and guidance expert
- set up and train a group of volunteers
- establish a network of useful contacts locally for referrals.
The role would suit someone with advice and guidance experience, who is passionate about facilitating the maximum independence of older people and their carers who find it increasingly difficult to navigate the systems around healthcare, benefits, social support, bereavement, etc.
- This is a fixed contract position, until February 2023, subject to funding.
- Closing date for applications is ongoing
