Opportunity available to help make life better for carers

Three out of five people in the UK will become carers at some time in their lives.

Carers Support Centre (CSC) Bristol and South Gloucestershire provides a wide range of information, advice and support services for unpaid adult and young (children) carers.

A carer is someone who provides support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse issues. All the care they give is unpaid.

We have a successful telephone counselling service for adult carers and are looking to expand our counselling team. The position(s) are available on a sessional basis and would be ideal to complement existing counselling work.

Telephone Counsellor(s)
Up to 4 sessions (50 minutes each) per week
Salary: £25 per hour on a self-employed basis, (also covers admin time)

The successful applicant(s) will have experience of:

• providing short term, solution focused counselling by telephone and ideally by skype or email.
• working with a diverse range of people, including young adults (18-25) and people from under- represented groups.
• a range of counselling models and theories.
