We are seeking to recruit 2 full time permanent Social Worker’s to join the Chesterfield Royal Hospital and University of Derby & Burton Hospital Discharge Teams.  For these posts, the focus will be to support Derbyshire residents to be discharged from those Acute Trusts but there is an expectation to provide support to other hospitals when required. The teams are based within the Integrated Discharge Hubs.

Experience of working in a 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 leaving hospital utilising a Home First approach.

You will need to be able to manage and positively adopt change. You would be expected to work effectively and build positive relationships with health partners and other agencies. You will need to be committed to working in a person centred and strengths-based way with clients and their families to maintain and maximise their independence, whilst observing the tight timescales under the Care Act and current guidance.

Derbyshire offer a flexible working scheme and professional development framework for Social Workers including Assessed & Supported Year in Employment (ASYE).
