Social Worker

Role Responsibility

If you are a registered Social Worker then 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.

We are looking for motivated, experienced professionals who are committed to working in an integrated team and ready to embrace new ways of working, to help further shape our services. 

As a Social Worker working with people over the age of 18 with a wide range of disabilities, you will manage a caseload requiring assessment, review and on-going support to make a real difference in achieving improved outcomes and leading to independent living for the service user.

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

A Social Work qualification is required, however if your qualification is pending and you are due to receive this shortly, you may still apply. Newly qualified social workers will also be considered.

For internal applicants only a Social Work, Occupational Therapy or Nursing qualification will be considered eligible.

Occasionally you will be expected to work outside normal office hours and at weekends to optimise support to service users and provide a responsive, seamless and multi-disciplinary approach.
