New Year, New Opportunity? 

These roles are based in locality fieldwork teams who produce a high throughput of quality social work interventions inclusive of:

- Application of the Care Act 2014 e.g. assessing needs and safeguarding adults at risk of abuse and neglect. 

- Application of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 e.g. mental capacity assessments and best interests decision making. 

- Participation in National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS Funded Nursing Care Decision Support Tools. 

Ideally, candidates will have some experience of inter-agency and multidisciplinary work with partners inclusive of health, as well as solution focused plus person and community centred practice with adults from a variety of service user groups.  There will be the opportunity to gain a wide breadth of experience with different service users and in a variety of contexts. 

Competency generally in utilising information and communication technology is necessary – but training on specific systems will also be available. 

Candidates who benchmark at interview will be offered, in order of interview performance, their preferred role from those remaining.  It is likely that posts additional to the above will become available post-advertisement.  Also, should further posts become available after this recruitment, candidates who benchmark may similarly be contacted within 3 months with further job offers.
