Chief Executive Officer
Carers Centre Tower Hamlets
Salary: c£55,000
Location: London, E1

Anyone can become a carer at any time, at almost any age. As many as three in five people will be carers at some point in their lives.

The Carers Centre strives to improve the lives of carers and by extension the lives of those they care for. A caring role can often be a very stressful, daunting, frustrating, emotionally and physically exhausting experience. As a result, the pressures on the long term carer build up over time.

The Carers Centre strives to ensure that its services continue to remain relevant to the needs of the carer population of Tower Hamlets. Tower Hamlets is an exciting diverse borough in the East End of London. Although it faces many social issues it remains an area with a vibrant feel to it and has not lost its community spirt.

Our new Chief Executive will be joining at a crucial and exciting time for the charity as we work towards our new strategic direction, adapt to meet the challenges of the future and develop our services to extend our reach to even more carers.

• To drive the strategy of Carers Centre Tower Hamlets with the vision to be a centre of excellence.

• To encourage, lead, participate in and manage relevant external partnerships, regionally and nationally, concerned with Carers and their families.

• To have an overview of all aspects of the present contract with Tower Hamlets Council, and future funding contracts.
