An exciting opportunity has arisen for a part time practice manager to work within Health and Social Care Connect (HSCC). We are looking for a forward thinking, dynamic professional with significant experience of working within Adult Social Care (ASC).
Health and Social Care Connect (HSCC) is the East Sussex countywide hub for both professionals and the public to access adult community health and social care services. HSCC provides a multi-disciplinary service comprising information, advice and signposting; phone-based information gathering, triage and assessment; the urgent provision of services based on eligible needs and the efficient processing of referrals onto appropriate community health and/or social care services. It is jointly delivered by East Sussex County Council Adult Social Care and East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (ESHT).
HSCC provides a 24 hour service, 7 days a week, so some evening and weekend working will be required in this role. There is also a requirement to provide on-call cover on a rota basis.
You will work closely with the management team and be responsible for managing and supervising the team including senior professionals. You will oversee the day to day running of the service ensuring that quality and customer service standards are met and maintained.
You will receive both professional and managerial supervision and have access to a wide range of training and support to enhance your professional development.
We would particularly welcome applications from Social Workers due to the safeguarding triage role that is undertaken in HSCC.
