Working for Age UK Northamptonshire
Age UK Northamptonshire is a local independent charity with around 270 employees, most of whom work part-time. In the 2017/18 financial year we helped over 14,000 people. If you would like to work for a charity that reduces loneliness and supports older people throughout the county, we'd love to hear from you.
If there are no current vacancies listed below, please see other ways you can get involved.
We need to recruit an experienced advice worker to undertake in-depth casework, give tailored advice and support to help people living in Northamptonshire implement their housing choices. You will be responsible for additional project work as directed by the Information & Advice Manager and deputise for the Manager when required. This role will also review advice work from the Manager's caseload and create and implement information guides relating to legislative changes.
We need to recruit an experienced advice worker to provide a high quality information and advice service to clients, their carers and/or other service providers. You will take live calls on the Information and Advice Line and carry out standard benefit assessments, inform clients of their entitlements and provide support with making appropriate claims. The post is largely office based, with some work in the community.
We are recruiting someone with knowledge of welfare benefits, housing issues and legislation and excellent IT skills to lead and oversee the quality, standards and deployment of our Information & Advice team. You will support advisers and volunteers, providing expertise and knowledge, and also undertake regular supervision sessions and team meetings.
This is a development role and will involve working with Age UK Milton Keynes (based in Milton Keynes) and Age UK Buckinghamshire (based in Aylesbury) to strengthen and develop the Information & Advice teams in each charity.
We need to recruit several caring, reliable people to help older people living in Northamptonshire look after their homes and stay independent. If you enjoy housework and keeping busy this is a rewarding job where you know you are making a difference.
Especially in Brackley - Corby - Daventry - Kingsthorpe
You will be providing a vital service that suits our clients and enables them to make the most of life. Having a reliable, caring person to help with domestic cleaning makes a huge difference to older people who may have a health condition that restricts what they can do. Not all our clients are in poor health or disabled but they all benefit from the reassurance of knowing that they can rely on Age UK Northamptonshire. PPE will be supplied for this role.
We’re looking for people who are kind, caring and compassionate. You don’t have to have care experience; we will support you to gain knowledge through training and increase your confidence by nurturing you so that you can provide the highest quality care to patients who are at the end of their lives and to support them and their family at home. What’s in it for you? The opportunity to join a caring and supportive team, to make a real difference to families at a challenging time and to achieve immense job satisfaction.
We have recently started a new service and are recruting two Care & Support Assistants to contribute to its development and expansion.
POST ONE – Day Care Assistant: salaried – Day Care at Home - 25 hours per week
POST TWO – Day Care Assistant: casual – Day Care (currently three Day Centres/Day Care at Home)
This new role offers the post holder the opportunity to innovate and develop new ways of working, both in the client’s own home or in a day centre setting.
Tasks will include the provision of care in a day care setting, shopping and spending time with clients in their own home to reduce social isolation and promote physical activity and mental stimulation. More details of other tasks are included in the job description.
We are recruiting an individual with passion and drive to take overall responsibility for the development of new and existing day care opportunities, both home and centre based. You will be responsible for the oversight and management of the Day Care and Transport services and be expected to run an efficient and responsive service.
If you have an understanding of equal opportunities, and the ability to work in an appropriate and sensitive way with all clients and have empathy with older people, we'd love to hear from you. This post is for 25 hours a week and can be hugely rewarding, enabling you to make a positive difference to vulnerable older people every day you're at work.
