There is an opportunity for a Social Care Practitioner to join the Bolsover North P&P team.

We work with adults who have care and support needs (and people approaching adulthood) living in the community and in care placements to complete person-centred assessments.

An understanding of Strength Based Models of practice and Care Act 2014 principles is necessary.

The role includes visiting people at home, or in homely settings, communicating with them and their carers to gather information to help positively influence their wellbeing and to maximise opportunities to promote choice and control. We undertake personalised safeguarding enquiries where strong communication and organisational skills will be required. We work alongside other organisations and professionals and staff within the team are linked to GP surgeries to promote effective multi-disciplinary practice.

There is opportunity for home and office working. Support is provided through a Microsoft Teams chat facility with the team, a daily Teams catch-up with team members and Senior Practitioner and/or Service Manager, monthly one to one supervision, and a monthly team meeting. We operate a ‘champion’ role, offering the opportunity to develop practice interests and share knowledge within the team.

Provisional Interview Date: week commencing 19 June 2023.

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
