About the roles
Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire and Daventry Volunteer Centre have been awarded funding for these roles for three years from the Big Lottery Fund. The Happy @ Home project will provide a lifeline to lonely, isolated and at risk older people in West Northamptonshire, supporting people to live happily, healthily, safely and independently in their homes for as long as possible. We are looking for three self-motivated, proactive outgoing staff members to deliver support and activities for older people across three districts.

You will have great people skills and a passion for supporting elderly and vulnerable people, working under your own initiative to tight deadlines. It is essential that you have experience of working with volunteers and communities and can demonstrate how you have managed successful community projects. The ability to build strong partner relationships and to enthuse others to come on board with the project is key. We are looking for 3 staff members who will work well independently and as part of the team lead by the Project Manager. You will be creative, idea driven and have the ability to be flexible in your working arrangements.

What we’ll give you

A competitive salary, flexible working to fit with the needs of the project, 20 days holiday per year initially.
