During this time of uncertainty during the Coronavirus pandemic, Imago is pleased to be in a position to recruit new staff. We are doing things a little differently with virtual interviews being held by the power of the internet, and a period of home working as we remotely provide services to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. We are ready to welcome new members to our team, ensuring that everyone receives the support and training to be able to make a difference.
Are you confident, reliable, outgoing and have a ‘can do’ attitude?

You will be the first point of call for all communications into the Hub, so must be confident communicating with clients, families and social care professionals by phone and email.
Based in a fast-paced office, the team deal with a constant flow of referrals and enquiries and you will be trained to use our bespoke database. Ability to follow processes, excellent data entry skills, speed and accuracy are key. Due to the nature of the role, you will need to swap between phone calls, enquiries and tasks while remaining focussed.
The Hub team are at the core of our services for vulnerable and disadvantaged people. You will prioritise and allocate tasks to support workers in the field, signpost people to other services and organisations, providing emotional support where necessary.
