This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a busy, but very supportive generic adult team in Social Care, the team consists of Social Worker and Social Care Practitioners. 

The post is  in a generic adults team, working with clients from the age of 18 upwards. You will require working knowledge of the Care Act 2014 and MCA 2005, as you will be assessing clients care needs, and working with them and their support networks to create support plans. Using person centred, strengths based approaches you will be supporting clients to lead fulfilled lives in our local communities.

The work is varied as we support clients with learning and physical disabilities, including younger clients who are preparing for adulthood.

We operate a ‘champion’ role in our team, which will give you the opportunity to develop and share your knowledge and practice interests with the team.

As a social worker in the team you will be supported with regular supervision and have access to peer group discussions to support you in your support planning.

Safeguarding is a regular part of the role, and experience in this area is preferred.

Our base is at The Arc in Clowne but due to the current  pandemic & new ways of working , workers are currently working from home and our office with support of technology.
