As in independent charity, our retail teams help to bring in the revenue which enables the incredible work offered to the community by other areas of the organisation. Furthermore, our stores (on the high street and online) support individuals by providing more budget-friendly shopping options and often act as a recycling tool for the sustainable market, promoting the sale of pre-loved items alongside new alternatives.
In addition to the below roles, we are also looking for volunteers to help, particularly in our Weymouth branch.


Footcare

Home Support
Following the pandemic, we have seen an increase in demand for our home support service, not only for the extra pair of hands around the house but the need for interaction with others to strengthen emotional connections and provide a sense of belonging to a community. Our incredible team of home support workers provide much-needed assistance from domestic cleaning to regular social interaction. We need to grow our team so that we can continue to help those who really need it. Not only is this an incredibly rewarding role, but it's also a paid role. We have a range of contracts available across North, south and West Dorset.

In addition, we are now also recruiting for a new Home Support Manager. This fast-paced managerial role directly aids the Charity's mission of enabling local older people to remain independent and enjoy life. The right candidate will provide practical and supportive line management to several direct reports. This is an administrative role working from our head office (with some home working).

 

Head Office Functions
We're currently looking to recruit a new Home Support Manager.

Additionally, the Home Support Manager will be tasked with growing the service across the county enabling the Charity to support even more local older people in need. You will work closely with our Bookings Co-ordinator and our Client Liasion Team, and be required to continually report on statistical data, ensuring the viability and growth of the service.
