We are looking for motivated and proactive people, who want to make a difference to the community, within a team that work collaboratively with internal and external partners and focuses on promoting a persons independence. The successful applicant also needs to be flexible in their approach and ready to embrace new ways of working to help further shape our services.

This is an exciting and multi-faceted post involving the daily use of computerised systems, recording and relaying essential information as necessary within the team, accurate maintenance of records and great emphasis on working as part of the immediate and wider teams. You will also be in day to day contact with individuals using the service, or their families via telephone and e-mail so excellent communication skills are essential for this role
