If you are a registered Social Worker then we would love to hear from you. We are offering an excellent opportunity to join a friendly, dynamic and supportive Social Work team which promotes professional development.
We are looking for motivated, experienced professionals who are committed to working in an integrated team and ready to embrace new ways of working, to help further shape our services.
As a Registered Practitioner working with people over the age of 18 with a wide range of disabilities, you will manage a caseload requiring assessment, review and on-going support to make a real difference in achieving improved outcomes and leading to independent living for the service user.
The ability to travel across a wide geographical area in a timely and flexible manner at various times of the day is essential. You should note that public transport is rarely a viable option as some rural areas of Kent often have limited public transport.
