Community Agents Essex is a countywide network of agents and volunteers who support adults (in particular older people and people with learning disabilities and autism) and their informal carers to help them remain living in their own homes. 

These are NOT personal care roles.

The service is delivered through a community and voluntary sector partnership, bringing together three well established organisations: Rural Community Council of Essex (RCCE); British Red Cross (BRC) and Essex County Neighbourhood Watch. These organisations bring a wide range of experience and expertise, working with vulnerable people across rural and urban areas.

Are you looking for flexible work that fits around your family/personal commitments and at the same time helps to support people in your local community?

If the answer's YES, then come and work or us!


We are currently recruiting for a Community Agent for the Colchester area
