Give & Take Care is a Community Interest Company (CIC) set up to deliver a scheme which will improve the social care model for older adults across the UK. It is an ambitious social innovation seeking to generate more care for the elderly by people in their local communities and more person-centred care.

The role requires sound communication skills, intermediate IT skills with an aptitude to learn a new IT database, social media co-ordination, negotiating and influencing skills, time-management, people skills, organisational skills, attention to detail and a passion for the bigger project itself.

The successful candidate will have a strong sense of personal initiative and believe in community development through co-design and the G&TC concept. Some work off site will be required for home visits, home assessments of Care Recievers and promotional events in the community. The post is based at Brunel University London (Uxbridge).
