About the role
A full-time, Social Worker permanent position has become available to join the Lewes & North Wealden Neighbourhood Support Team.
This is an interesting post which offers the opportunity to work in partnership with people in a multi-disciplinary way towards promoting the independence of the adults we work with.
The post would offer the preferred candidate the opportunity to work in partnership with our clients undertaking Care Act (2014) compliant assessments, offering support, guidance and signposting where necessary.
You will need to be confident and competent in assessing risk, undertaking mental capacity assessments, to have knowledge of Safeguarding Adults practice and be willing to develop in these areas.
These are challenging roles and the part you play will ensure our service continues to develop, giving positive outcomes for vulnerable people who are assessed as meeting Adult Social Care’s eligibility criteria.
A commitment to your own professional development is also required and in return good support and encouragement is always available.
All applications will be considered against the Job Description and Person Specification.
