About the Organisation

3 in 5 of us will become a carer at some point in our lives. Whether we are caring for a parent, partner or family member with an illness or disability, caring is a rewarding and demanding role.

Unpaid carers save the economy over £132bn every year – that’s the cost of a second NHS. The carers our client supports save the Wiltshire economy over £961 million a year.

Our client helps carers access services, information, education and training, respite, and breaks from their caring role. They ensure they have a voice that is heard and work with health and social care professionals and employers to raise carer awareness and develop best practice.

You may have experience in sales, customer service, fundraising, fundraiser, community fundraising, account manager, business development.
