Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

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 and supports the independence of the people we support.

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 and make a difference every day.

As a Social Worker you will be working with people over the age of 18 with a diverse range of care and support needs. You will manage a dynamic caseload requiring complex assessment and on-going support. This is to facilitate achieving improved outcomes and promoting independent living for the service user working alongside service providers.

Through excellent opportunities for training and development, including a comprehensive induction, you will receive the support you need and recognition for your good work.

A Social Work qualification is required. For internal applicants only, an 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.

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.

This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure application to the Disclosure and Barring service and registration as a qualified Social Worker with Social Work England.

As this position will require access to care home facilities the government has set down legislation that requires all staff who access care home facilities to be double vaccinated before 11 November.

This means that you must receive your first dose no later than 16 September and your second no later than 11 November, unless you are medically exempt.

We offer the following:-

- Social Worker position at KR9 (£30,034 to £34,180 depending on experience) or KR10 (£34,351 to £40,405 depending on experience)

- Relocation package

- Full induction and comprehensive professional learning and development

- Annual leave allowance of 27 to 30 days depending on grade and experience

- Golden Hello of £2,000 one-off payment on starting employment subject to meeting criteria
