We are currently seeking to recruit to a social worker post within the Chesterfield Hospital Discharge Team, which is part of our County Wide Hospital Discharge Service. 

The team primarily provides short term assessment and support to maximise independence and prevent unnecessary admission to enable people to continue living in their own home as long as possible.

Post Holder will be expected to work within tight discharge timescales and therefore will be of interest to applicants who enjoy working within a busy Integrated Multi-disciplinary setting.

Experience of working in Adult Care, specifically the hospital setting is beneficial but not essential.  You will need to have transferrable skills to enable you to facilitate safe, sustainable transfers of care for people utilising a Home First approach.  

The post is for a 5 in 7 working pattern but at the present time staff are expected to work on a Monday to Friday basis. Prior notice will be given in advance if this changes.   

You will need to be able to manage change and have the ability to work effectively and build positive relationships with health partners and other agencies.  

Employees have access to a range of benefits and discounts including: 

  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme
  • 25/27 days annual leave per year (rising to 30/32 days after 5 years continuous service) plus 8 bank holidays (pro rata). Grade dependant.
  • Training and development opportunities
  • Paid travel expenses if required to travel to other sites
  • Smarter travel scheme including access to the cycle to work scheme
  • Supportive management and team
  • Access to our in-house occupational services which also includes free eye tests, physiotherapy and counselling
  • Derbyshire rewards – offering hundreds of discounts and cashback
