Location: Lister Hospital, Stevenage

Salary: £22,500

About us: Giving people a voice – and making sure it’s heard – is something POhWER does every day. We’re all about promoting equality, challenging unfairness and giving disadvantaged and vulnerable people access to high quality information, advice and advocacy services. POhWER is a registered charity that provides a range of services across England and Scotland

We are looking to recruit people who share our core values and can demonstrate that they apply and live those values in their daily working practice.

About the role:

POhWER has partnered with five local voluntary sector organisations in Hertfordshire to deliver a new integrated hospital discharge and community navigation service. The project aims to improve peoples’ general health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation, unnecessary hospital admissions, GP visits and reduce reliance on home care providers.

Working across both hospital and community settings, you will support people, over the age of 18, who are frail, vulnerable or unwell, or in danger of losing their independence, including those who are being admitted to and discharged from hospital, to find and access a wide range of support based on their individual needs.

The role will cover Stevenage and North Hertfordshire and is based in Stevenage.

An excellent communicator along with an understanding of older people and previous experience of delivering a service to the community is essential. A working knowledge of health, specialist mental health and other statutory services would be an advantage.

Candidates will need to travel independently of public transport and have access to their own vehicle.

 

We apologise in advance, that if you do not hear back from us within two weeks of the closing date then please presume that you have been unsuccessful.

There are also possible volunteering opportunities available within POhWER across the whole of England, to get more information on these opportunities please visit http://www.pohwer.net/get-involved/volunteering-for-pohwer.
