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 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.

A Social Work qualification is required.  For internal applicants only an Occupational Therapy or Nursing qualification will be considered eligible.

Occasionally you will be expected to work outside normal office hours and at weekends to optimise support to service users and provide a responsive, seamless and multi-disciplinary approach.
