    Post: Team Leader Hospital Carer Support Worker
    Hours: 35 per week 
    Responsible to: Centre Manager
    Salary: £33,364.17 per annum
    Location: Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, with travel to Queen Margaret Hospital, community hospitals throughout Fife and The Fife Carers Centre, Kirkcaldy.

    Fife Carers Centre is a well-regarded and well-established organisation that has supported thousands of families and unpaid carers throughout Fife since 1995. The vision of Fife Carers Centre is to ensure that unpaid carers throughout Fife are valued, recognised, and supported to have equal access to a good quality of life that is not prejudiced by their caring role.

    The Role

    You will be based at Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, with travel to community hospitals throughout Fife and Fife Carers Centre, Kirkcaldy. Your work will include providing a sensitive, person-centred support service for carers where the cared-for person is in hospital approaching discharge. You will oversee an established Hospital Based Program and supervise a team of four Hospital Carer Support Workers across Fife's Hospitals, working closely with Fife Carers Centre Manager to establish continuity of support for Carers after discharge.

    You'll assist carers in presenting their views to the appropriate planning authorities and decision-makers, as well as giving one-to-one support to carers so that they know how to access services helping them to develop self-advocacy and, where necessary, advocating on the carer's behalf, and very importantly providing a listening ear for carers.

    How to apply

    Full details about the role and the application form can be found here on the Fife Carers website.

    The closing date for applications is 11.59am on Monday 17 June 2024. Interview will be held week beginning 01 July 2024.
