Case Officer

Role Responsibility

If you have experience within the health and social care sector, we would love to hear from you. We are offering an excellent opportunity to join a friendly, dynamic and supportive team which promotes professional development.

This post would be based in the North Kent and Swale area and focusing on the work for discharge planning for clients under the Older Persons Physical Disability (OPPD) remit . This post is within a team that works collaboratively with health and other partnership agencies and focuses on promoting a persons independence.

We are looking for motivated, proactive professionals who are interested in working within the Short Term Pathways, and keen to work with Acute, Community Hospitals. The successful applicant also needs to be flexible in their approach and committed to working in an integrated team and ready to embrace new ways of working, to help further shape our services. 

As a Case Officer working with people over the age of 18 with a wide range of needs, you will manage a caseload requiring assessment, review and on-going support to make a real difference in achieving improved outcomes, promoting the independence of our service users.

Alongside opportunities for training and development, you will receive the support you need and recognition for your good work.

Our team in Short Term Pathways is creative, dynamic and diverse.  The team are proud of the high standard of service we provide to our customers at their most vulnerable times. This is an exciting time to join us and informal telephone calls prior to interview are welcomed form people who share our values and are ready to be part of our exciting journey.

The ability to travel across a wide geographical area in a timely and flexible
manner at various times of the day is essential. You should note that public
transport is rarely a viable option as some rural areas of Kent often have limited
public transport.

This post is considered by KCC to be a customer-facing position. The Council
therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to
ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for
the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are
set out in the Job Description/Person Specification.

We are increasingly accessible to the public outside of traditional office hours, as we
move towards an 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week service to ensure service needs
are met.

This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure application to the Disclosure and Barring service.

This post is based at Medway Maritime Hospital, however there is an expectation that the successful applicant will travel to the various locations in North Kent and Swale to undertake short term pathway work.
