Further information

This is Redcar and Cleveland. We are an ambitious council keen to build on our strong track record of innovation and partnership working, ensuring that we create a flourishing future for the borough and all of its residents. Key to this is a committed workforce who always gives their best. Offering a fast paced, progressive working environment, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is a great career move.

The Adults & Communities Directorate, consists of four strands, Adult Social Care, Community Development, Neighbourhoods and Public Health. Our aims are to continue to provide essential and highly valued services and to build capacity to enable local communities to make lasting change, improve quality of life, prosperity and the environment. As a directorate we lead on developing a culture of co-operation and co production, respecting and nurturing the skills and talents of local people and enabling them to fulfil their potential.

This is a great opportunity to join the Recovery and Independence Team at an exciting time of development and expansion. The Recovery & Independence Team provide:

- Reablement Service to adults supporting them to learn or re-learn skills of daily living with the aim of them reaching their potential to live independently in their own home.

- Rapid Response Service providing support (within two hours) with personal care, meals and medication to prevent inappropriate emergency admissions to Care homes or hospital and support hospital discharge.

The team covers the whole of Redcar and Cleveland Borough offering the service 7 days per week, from 7am to 10pm. This post-holder will be required to work Monday to Friday 8:30-5 and participate in a weekend working rota currently one weekend in six and an out of hours on call system.

As the service continues to expand and develop, we are looking for two additional Co-ordinators to assist with staff line management responsibilities including; supervision and appraisal and absence management, the initial assessment for re-ablement, the monitoring and reviewing of individual programmes of support, referrals onto other services, assessment of the individuals on the rapid response service in relation to their potential to be re-abled or requirements for on-going needs.

The authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children/young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and a DBS disclosure will be sought.

For further information contact Geraldine Handley, Recovery & Independence Team Manager on 01642 315481.

The council is an accredited Investors in People employer at gold level and holds ambassador status for the North East Better Health at Work Award.

We offer very attractive terms and conditions of employment, including generous annual leave entitlement, flexible working hours (where appropriate), membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and access to numerous other salary sacrifice schemes and staff benefits/discounts, including a lease car scheme.
