WE ARE RECRUITING NOW
Memory Makers Case Manager
£22,788 P/A – 28 hours per week
Memory Makers is part of SMASH, one of Swindon’s most respected charities. Now in it’s fourth year Memory Makers works with children from 9 to 12 years old who are having a few problems at school or at home. By matching them with a volunteer Memory Maker, the project gives them new experiences, a safe and supportive adult to spend time with and positive childhood memories to help them build confidence, resilience and hope for the future.
We are now recruiting for a Case Manager to work with the volunteers and children and to take Memory Makers to the next level. The successful candidate will have a relevant qualification and experience of working with vulnerable children and young people. They will also have a can do attitude, a caring nature and a smile to share.
In return we can give good rates of pay, flexible working hours and a chance to help change some lives for the better.
The Memory Makers Case Manager will:
- Provide supervision and support to volunteers working within the Memory Makers Project.
- Work closely with external agencies and partners to provide a broad range of services and activities for Memory Makers children.
- Work alongside the Senior Case Manager and the Project Director to devise and implement ways whereby children can enter and maximise their involvement in and gain positive outcomes from the project.
- When and where possible publicise the project and its progress, as a means of creating greater awareness of SMASH and the Memory Makers project.
- Explore and organise other opportunities such as group and other activities that children involved with the project can access and to consider ways in which the project could be broadened to enable children to gain the best possible outcomes.
- Help to recruit and select volunteers and organise and deliver training volunteers along with the design and creation of training courses, material and other resources.
- Organise both directly and in partnership with other organisations, activities with and for children and volunteers.
- Offer direct support to children where needed.
- Conduct initial assessments of children referred to the project and to plan in order to put into place appropriate interventions.
- Make contact and work with volunteers as required to enable effective communication between parents, referrers and the project office and others as appropriate.
- Liaise effectively with parents/guardians and referral agencies.
- Work with other team members and researchers as necessary to facilitate research programmes around the Memory Makers project.
The nature of the work means that the post holder will be expected to work outside normal office hours and occasionally at the weekend in order to meet the client group’s requirements.
