Carers Trust Wales provides information, advice and support to Wales’ 370,000 unpaid carers and to professionals who work with carers. Together with a network of local carer focused charities, we provide support, information, advice and services for children, young people and adults caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend. The number of carers is a growing issue, with 3 in 5 of us likely to become a carer at some point in our lifetime. Carers save the Welsh economy over £8.1bn every year and act as the main support to our stretched health and social care systems.

We are currently looking for a Research and Policy Officer to deliver a Welsh Government funded project focussed on respite services for carers of all ages and broader support available for young carers.

The post will sit within the Carers Trust Wales team managed by the Senior External Affairs Manager.

The successful candidate will have experience in undertaking research both in terms of literature reviews and identifying and engaging with key stakeholders. Additionally, the successful candidate will have experience of writing reports, synthesising information and presenting findings in clear and engaging ways.

This is a great opportunity for someone interested in joining a vibrant organisation and very successful team.
