Community Response Officer (North of England)

Hourglass vacancy:

Community Response Officer (North of England)



Home-based initially; although you may be expected to work in an office location if funding permits us to secure an office.  The role covers the following areas, and you’ll therefore be expected to be within travelling distance to one of these areas: Northumberland, Cumbria, Durham, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire, or North Lincolnshire.


Hours: 35 hours per week

Salary: £22,500 per annum


Hourglass is dedicated to calling time on the harm, abuse and exploitation of older people. We support older people experiencing (or at risk of) harm, abuse or exploitation, and work towards safer ageing and a fairer society for all older people.


As Hourglass works towards a modern new vision based on community-led support, this exiting new role presents a unique opportunity to help us deliver a person-centred approach to tackling the harm and abuse of older people across the North of England.


This is a pivotal time in the charity’s development, and we need someone with the motivation and drive to support us to develop and grow.  Working within our new Community Hub structure (operating remotely initially), you’ll be responsible for:


establishing a local Hourglass presence in the North of England, and raising the profile of the abuse of older people and safer ageing


helping us establish a range of services for older people and others in the region


directly supporting older people and others via our Community Hub, and supporting volunteers to deliver via Hourglass services.
