Do you have what it takes to make a difference to older people? Can you organise an exciting programme of activities? MHA are currently looking for a Community Programme Coordinator to support the Selly Oak Live at Home Scheme.
The Live at Home Community Programme Coordinator is responsible for co-ordinating and running a programme of activities to enable older people (60+) to live later life well. Operated by MHA, Live at Home schemes offer services that aim to relieve social isolation and encourage older people to take an active part in the communities in which they live. Promoting independence and wellbeing for older people living at home is at the heart of everything we do at Selly Oak Live at Home scheme.
MHA Live at Home Schemes operate across the UK, enabling older people to maintain their independence and live later life well and we are looking for an enthusiastic dedicated person to join our team. Our office is based in Northfield and we deliver our services throughout the South West of Birmingham, supporting older people in B14; B29; B30; B31; B38; B45 and B63. Having access to a car is essential for this role due to the spread of our services across South West Birmingham. Members attending our social groups come to have fun therefore a good sense of humour and a “can do” attitude is key to this role.
The post holder will be required to develop new activities based on the feedback and needs of the local community; this could include partnering with other organisations and professionals, therefore strong communication and organisation skills are essential. Anyone applying for this post must be able to work occasional evenings and weekends as our services are delivered across seven days a week.
The services Live at Home schemes provide are social support within the community, there is no expectation of personal or domiciliary care and this is not a housing or care home role.
So if you are excited about working with us why not give us a call for an informal chat on 07568611989 or email us at email@example.com.
Please note that interviews may take place prior to the advert closing as and when suitable applications are received. If a suitable candidate is appointed the role may close early, therefore please do not hesitate to submit your application.
