Adult and Older People’s Service. Permanent and Fixed term posts available
An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within our well-established Adult Community Team, which delivers services to achieve the best outcomes for adults and older people who have care and support needs.
We work with a variety of people over the age of 18 who have the need for social work intervention. We are looking for highly motivated, registered social workers to join our expanding Adult Community Teams. We are proud and committed to working alongside people and their carers, to enable them to lead more independent and fulfilling lives, as part of their local communities.
It is essential that you have a social work qualification and have a clear understanding of the Care Act and the Local Authorities statutory duties. The successful applicant will also need to be a dynamic, innovative and committed person, willing to consider all possible options, working with external stakeholders, people and their families, as well as colleagues within local authority. It is an exciting time to join us as we embark on a new model of social work practice which will be more relationship based and utilise traditional social work skills.
If you need to undertake your ASYE then you will be pleased to know we offer a 20% reduction in workload, greater than the suggested national 10% and will start you off on obtaining a Post-Graduate Certificate in Social Work
We are committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. This post is working in regulated activity. If you are successful we will undertake additional recruitment checks which will include a check to see if you have had any criminal convictions, a check of police information and we will check the barred list(s). It is a criminal offence for a barred individual to apply for a job in regulated activity.
As this post involves working with children, vulnerable adults or dealing with sensitive information, written references will be taken up and made available to interviewers before the final selection stage; even if you indicate otherwise.
In addition to this you will receive:
• A dedicated 10-day induction
• Options for flexible and hybrid working
• Generous annual leave in addition to bank holidays with the ability to buy additional leave
• Access to a PQ Postgraduate Framework
• Access to online social work resources
• Access to mindfulness sessions and other wellbeing initiatives including a well-being telephone line
• Access to a generous, defined benefit pension scheme
• Access to a home electronics schemes and vehicle leasing scheme.
