Further Information
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 a highly motivated, registered social worker to join our expanding Adult Community Team. 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.
We are specifically looking for a social worker to be part of our Older Persons Community Mental Health Team.
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. They will have experience of working with older people experiencing mental health difficulties.
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.
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.
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.
