The job is to provide short term support to carers who are participating or wish to participate in activities organised under Manchester Carers Network Learning and Development programme.

Carers who will benefit from the support of sessional workers are likely to have more than one specific issue that they want to address and will be accessing more than one learning and development opportunity.

Tasks are likely to include;

  • Supporting individual carers to access the programme,
  • Supporting carers to put the learning from the programme into practice,
  • Supporting carers to access ongoing support from Statutory and Voluntary sector organisations in the City of Manchester.

Sessional Workers will be required to support carers throughout the whole of the City of Manchester, so there will be a requirement to be able to travel independently and to be able to prioritise effectively.
