Recruiting Organisation: Age UK West Sussex, Brighton & Hove (AUKWSBH)               

Working hours: 37 hours a week with occasional evenings and weekends

Location: Arun/Chichester/Worthing

Salary :  £25,750 p.a


Age UK West Sussex, Brighton & Hove, is an independent local charity working in the community to help older people, their families and their carers. Their vision is to inspire and enable people in West Sussex, Brighton & Hove to Love Later Life. To do this, they provide an array of services and activities that meet the needs and interests of the communities they support, providing opportunities for people to get out, have fun, socialise and build friendships. It really is a great place to work if you really want to make a difference in people’s lives.


The Role:

As part of a brand-new service, you’ll be supporting a brand-new team as well as working 1-2-1 with people supporting them to access local community services and connecting them up to improve their health and wellbeing.  For example, they might need help to access benefits or housing advice, or they may be lonely and want to get out and about more. You’ll work as part of a multidisciplinary NHS team through Sussex Community Foundation Trust.  This is an extremely rewarding role making a big difference to local people, keeping them out of hospital and in their homes – many don’t have local family support.  You’ll be provided with training and support every step of the way as we set up this exciting new team.


At AUKWSBH, staff benefits include:

  • Flexible Working Option
  • Ongoing professional training and development
  • 28 days annual leave (plus bank holidays) pro-rata for part time staff
  • Eligible for Blue Light discount scheme
  • Part of an inclusive and committed team
  • Ability to make a genuine positive difference to people’s lives
  • 4% auto enrolment pension with Life Assurance

They welcome and encourage applications from all members of the community.
