Now recruiting: Peer Support Workers

26th June 2024

  • Two exciting opportunities have arisen within our Peer Support Service. We are looking to appoint new Peer Support Workers to the following posts:

    • 20-hour, 1-year fixed-term contract – from 1 Sept 2024 to 31 August 2025
    • Up to 20 hours temporary contract (hours negotiable with individual applicants) – this post will run until 31 March 2025 in the first instance, with the option of extension subject to funding

    We are a flexible employer willing to discuss working hours and working patterns with individual candidates.

    Peer support workers work with parents and carers to give information, advice and support, empowering them to access services and reduce isolation. This includes telephone support, virtual and face-to-face appointments, and drop-in sessions in local communities. Group sessions will also be delivered as part of the service.
