North London Cares is seeking a warm, approachable, empathetic and resilient people-person to join our team for a six month period, helping to manage our ambitious pro-active Winter Wellbeing project.
The project will run from October 2017 to March 2018, and through a series of interactions and interventions will help older neighbours to stay warm, active, healthy and connected during the most isolating time of year.
Reporting to our Head of Programmes and working with our experienced Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, the successful candidate will be responsible for communicating regularly with older people; organising the sourcing and delivery of various items to help ensure our older neighbours are neither left alone nor left behind during winter; reaching out to older people by door-knocking, in supermarkets, chemists, GP surgeries and other community locations; and vital record keeping.
So we need someone who loves working with people, who can relate to and build trust with neighbours from all backgrounds including those in difficult situations, and who has high quality communication and administrative skills.
If that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
