More information about the role:

Eczema Outreach Support is a charity supporting families struggling with the day-to-day challenges of having a child with eczema.  The condition is often underestimated and misunderstood. In reality, eczema can have a huge impact on many aspects of life.

Set up in Scotland in 2011 by the mother of a child with eczema, our unique support service has evolved hugely and we are now ready to roll out our core support service across the UK. The role focuses on helping families break down the practical and emotional barriers created by eczema. Full training and induction will be provided.

We expect most families outside Scotland to come from England, though the service will also be open to Wales and Northern Ireland. You will initially provide 1-1 family support remotely, i.e. by phone, emails and social media. Over time, some cases may require a home visit, so access to a car is essential. You will work closely with our team in Scotland, who will actively contribute to our new families’ support by delivering complementary services, such as sending welcome packs and delivering our children’s projects.

EOS is a fast-paced charity and we are constantly improving our service for the benefit of the families we support.  If you like working in an organisation that grabs opportunity and makes change happen then download our pack now.
