Community Engagement Project Manager
This post is funded by Carers Trust’s Making Carers Count Programme, which is supported by the Covid-19 Support Fund.
We are looking for a Community Engagement Project Manager with a specific focus on engaging with underrepresented organisations and unpaid carers. This is a new role and you will be joining us at a time when Camden Carers have pledged to become an anti-racist organisation. Covid-19 has both highlighted and exacerbated the inequalities faced by underrepresented carers in Camden.
The post-holder will be joining the Development, Learning and Activities Team and will be leading on a range of initiatives to improve access and quality of life for unpaid Carers in Camden from underrepresented groups, to ensure our services are accessible for everyone.
You will be working to strengthen and diversify organisational and unpaid carer’s participation, particularly amplifying the voice of unpaid carers, and embedding joint working between Camden Carers and underrepresented communities and organisations in Camden. Through engaging with underrepresented communities, you will increase referrals to our Support and Wellbeing team and wider services. Your work will further develop referral pathways and services.
The programme will be eternally evaluated and will provide recommendations, successes and challenges of the project.
We are looking for someone who has experience in community engagement, skills in engaging with a diverse range of underrepresented communities, both organisational and individual, good understanding of unpaid carers needs, knowledge of anti-racist practice and principles.
You will need experience in co-ordinating, building and developing partnerships, and building trust and consensus across a range of stakeholders. You will need to be self-motivated, creative and tenacious and have supervision skills, as you will be directly managing an engagement support worker.
You will be working as part of the friendly Development, Learning and activities team, which is part of the wider Camden Carers Service staff. You will need flexibility to attend some meetings at evenings and weekends.
- You will need to be committed to, and will be supported with, professional development.
- A diverse panel of staff and carers will be part of the interview panel.
