Our Vacancies

  • Adult Social Care Frontdoor Helpline Worker

    Age UK Lambeth’s vision is to work closely with residents, closely to where they live, remain relevant and to respond locally to rising needs. We want to ensure that we are easy to access, working with local communities and providing the best support we can. The MYcommunity Gateway Team provides support across Age UK Lambeth’s three Neighbourhoods: North, South and Central. 


    Age UK Lambeth and the MYcommunity Gateway team have partnered with Lambeth Adult Social Care in response to the redesign of their Initial Contact Service. Age UK Lambeth provides a busy, in-demand helpline to all new callers to Lambeth Adult Social Care. The helpline provides a triage service, dealing with enquiries, providing individuals the opportunity to discuss their issues and be provided with advice, information and guidance and potentially signposted to a range of services to provide them with support. Where appropriate, referrals are made to ASC for an assessment. 

    Call operation times will be Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm, excluding bank holidays.

    The service works closely with Lambeth Adult Social Care and we have a base working alongside them at the Civic Centre in Brixton. Staff work hybridly, with the opportunity to work from home at least two days per week.

    What you’ll be doing?

    1. The Helpline Worker will answer Lambeth Adult Social Care’s telephone line where the caller has selected a new caller to the service. 

    2. Answer a range of queries and offer reassurance to all callers.

    3. Refer clients to Adult Social Care for an assessment where appropriate.

    4. Refer clients into external and partner services to provide support and refer clients to other Age UK Lambeth services.

    What you’ll benefit from

    • Flexibility - this is a full-time role Brixton based - close to good transport and vibrant town centre

    • Generous pension provision - 7% employer contribution

    • 26 days holiday a year rising to 31 days after 5 years

    • A great staff team

  • Trustee

    Thank you for wanting to find out more about becoming a member of Age UK Lambeth’s Board.

    Our Board members are unpaid volunteers called trustees. They fill an essential role in ensuring our charity improves the lives of older and vulnerable people around the borough of Lambeth. We hope that this pack lets you know more about the charity, the role of a trustee and how to apply to become one.

    We currently have seven Board members with space for up to five more. We want to find people who have a desire to direct services that enable lives to be changed for the better. We want to increase the diversity of the Board bringing different life experiences which match the Lambeth community, broad and diverse as it is. Ideally we want people that bring new skills and experience or enhance those already in place, but this is not essential. It’s not necessary to have previous Board experience.
