(https://www.ageuk.org.uk/our-impact/programmes/integrated-care/#)
This post is funded as part of a £2.7m research programme (PROSPER) - @ProsperTrial - which aims to improve the quality of life for older people with frailty by giving them choice and control over decisions about their own health and well-being.
Ideally, you will have a health, social care or voluntary sector background (or be familiar with these areas), be able to provide leadership, guidance, support and supervision to members and able to liaise effectively with the research team to achieve the required outputs.
Agile working is supported, but the nature of the post will require some travel across the District. A full driving license, appropriate insurance cover and use of a car is essential.
