About the Team

The Deputyship Team is a frontline service within Adult Social Care responsible for managing the finances of people who lack the capacity to manage their own financial affairs. The team is based in Quadrant Court, Woking but operates countywide, working closely with colleagues across Adult Social Care.

At any one time, the team support a high caseload of circa 700-800 people.

The role 

As an Assistant Team Manager, with day to day oversight of caseworkers and other team members, you will pay a pivotal role in ensuring that Adult Social Care fulfils certain statutory responsibilities under the Mental Capacity Act.  Safeguarding the finances of any person assessed as lacking capacity to manage their financial affairs is a key objective of the team.

With previous experience of managing staff, you will have excellent interpersonal skills and an aptitude for providing advice and guidance to staff and colleagues across Adult Social Care on complex matters. Detailed knowledge and experience of the Mental Capacity Act, the Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian is essential.

A self-starter, you will bring your organisational skills, your enthusiasm, and your person-centred approach to the team. You will be a willing and capable advocate for people who need support with their financial affairs as well as a supportive line manager to your team.
