An opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified and experienced individual to join the First Contact Team (Adult Social Care) as a Social Care Officer on a permanent basis.
The team deals with a wide range of incoming referrals for social care support, advice and information. Enquiries relating to the safeguarding of adults and adults who need care and support are also a key part of the role.
The successful candidate will have knowledge and experience of adult social care, adult safeguarding and the ability to communicate effectively with clients, their families, members of the public and professionals across a range of services. A good standard of administration skills and the ability to use IT systems is essential.
The successful candidate will work to promote a preventative approach as outlined by the Care Act 2014 and will prioritise the well-being and safety of clients and their families.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated individual who works well as part of a team, uses their initiative and is able to adapt to change. The successful candidate will be skilled in problem-solving and requires an ability to remain calm and focused whilst balancing a variety of demands.
In return, we offer a supportive environment and are committed to continuous professional development with regular supervision and an annual appraisal.
We offer an excellent total reward package including a competitive salary, generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement as well as access to a number of additional employee benefits and a wide range of learning and development opportunities.
