Maternity cover for up to 9 months
Mansfield District Council are seeking a part time Case Management Officer to cover maternity leave for a period of approximately 9 months from August 2021.
We are looking for someone to join our busy team and work alongside all other Community Safety front line staff, including Neighbourhood Wardens and CCTV enforcement. This person needs to be conversant in working in partnership with various support and enforcement agencies including the police and fire services, social services adult and children and youth services.
The post has recently been developed to include today’s community demand to the department. Demand in relation to cases of ASB account for a majority of all calls for service and for this reason requires an officer to consider all solutions from a problem solving approach. Problem solving solutions should therefore be a strong skill of any candidate.
The team are the main resource to ensure that social care responsibilities relating to the service are managed and developed. This includes the need to understand social care referral processes and how to lead this demand to a satisfactory referral solution.
Funded project development forms part of the role, and such work will see the officer working with many partners on long term projects. Recently this has included such work as that of youth engagement and family support. Such work can include the need to converse and mediate solutions with struggling families.
The successful candidate will be expected to have a high level of communication skills including that of negotiating, selling, collecting, presenting and chairing. Therefore the successful candidate will have excellent verbal and written skills. This includes the need to be able to produce reports which require the officer to first, carry out research, analyse data and make recommendations to assist managers in performance management and operational decision making.
This team is fully responsible for the Authority’s approach to any unlawful encampments from the welfare aspect to court papers for eviction applications where appropriate. The successful candidate will thus need to be conversant in the development of court papers.
Most of the ASB work and continuous nuisance issues dealt with by the department are the responsibility of this team. This often involves the use of community protection warnings and notices prior to court applications for community protection notices. Thus the candidate will be expected to be both conversant and adept in the use of the Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act.
The successful candidate must be highly conversant with Microsoft word and excel as some reports will require the creation of data spreadsheets and charts.
