Carers UK is looking for a new Director of Carer Support to lead them through an exciting period of growth, help deliver an ambitious new strategy and be responsible for developing new ways of supporting carers, especially those typically harder to reach.

About the role 

The pandemic has really shone a light on what Britain’s unpaid carers do, with as many as one in four of us now providing care. We believe we have a burning platform to bring about change, as well as provide carers with what they need.

The Director of Carer Support will lead the team to ensure delivery of an ambitious new strategy, and will also be responsible for developing new ways of supporting carers, especially those typically harder to reach. This role has the potential to change carers’ lives forever.

About us 

Carers UK is the national membership charity for the 6.5 million people in the UK who are unpaid carers – and whose care is valued at a staggering £132 billion per year. We are seeking an exceptional candidate who is looking for an exciting opportunity to effect lasting change.

Carers UK’s mission is simple: in whatever ways caring affects you and your family, we are here. We are here with expert advice, information and support. We connect carers so that no one has to care or feel alone. We are committed to innovating to find new ways to reach and support carers. We are tenacious campaigners, and together with our members, we strive for lasting change for carers.

Our vision is of a society that respects, values and supports carers for the huge contribution we make to our families and communities. As the only national membership charity for unpaid carers with over 26,000 members we have created a supportive community of carers. And their voices mean that we are highly respected as experts on the issues facing carers and in the provision of advice, information and support.

About you

With increasing demand for our information, support and advice; a growing membership, and increasing impact through volunteering, we need a Director to lead our work and improve and develop the support we provide for unpaid carers at this crucial time.

The Director of Carer Support will lead the team to ensure delivery of an ambitious new strategy, and will also be responsible for developing new ways of supporting carers, especially those typically harder to reach. This role has the potential to change carers’ lives forever.

You will be a highly motivated leader with a proven track record of leading teams and delivering complex beneficiary-focused and funded projects on time, to budget and to target. Collaborative in approach and with excellent communication skills, you will provide strategic leadership to the Carer Support team and, as a member of the Senior Management Team of Carers UK, contribute to our overall strategy and impact.

We are seeking an exceptional candidate who is looking for an exciting opportunity to effect lasting change.
