Want to feel empowered to make your work person-centred?
That those around you trust you, and inspire you?
Work alongside some of the sector’s most passionate professionals, as a Hertfordshire County Council Social Worker/Senior Social Worker, with a focus on working with people with Asperger’s syndrome.
This is an exciting and rewarding role within our Adult Disability Team and Older People Teams, to provide responses to those in need of support.
So what does this role involve?
You’ll need to be able to respond to complex needs, which can be difficult or ambiguous at times, and work closely with our carers. Your acute analytical skills will be used to inform assessment, make decisions, and intervene when needed – also supporting others to do the same.
You will also be able to ensure effective safeguarding and risk management, so that our people are protected from harm.
The role requires you to address adversity (such as poor health and poverty), as well as social exclusion, to help maximise strength of individuals and their communities. You will promote independence and autonomy with all who you work with, using your person-centred approach.
You will be an ambassador for our HCC Values, Behaviours, and Professional Standards, both internally and externally. This will also involve contributing to the learning and development of others. Alongside this, we will continually support you in your professional development.
You will be working within a multidisciplinary adult disability team, providing both a clinical and strategic focus and lead in working with people with Aspergers Syndrome. Some experience, and an interest in this area of work will be required.
