Eurocarers is the European network representing informal carers and their organisations, irrespective of the particular age or health need of the person they are caring for, with the aim of advancing their interests both at national and EU level. Carers are people who provide (usually unpaid) care to someone with a chronic illness, disability or other long-lasting health or care need, outside a professional or formal employment framework. Our objective is to contribute to the development of sustainable, people-centred and community-based care services that fully recognise and value the contribution of carers.

The Project Officer will be responsible for the successful and timely completion of Eurocarers’ deliverables in the framework of two EU-funded Projects (Erasmus + and Horizon 2020 programmes). He/She will also contribute to the development of evidence-based policy recommendations building on these projects.
