Are you an experienced Social Worker?  Would you like a challenging role with the opportunity to work in an integrated team, support developments and gain management experience?

 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an ambitious, innovative and experienced social worker to join the Single Point of Access team. North Somerset has an established Integrated Single Point of Access providing timely advice, information and triage of referrals received to Adult Services.  Working within a dynamic service delivery model we are now ready to continue to develop the service to ensure we are achieving excellent outcomes for residents of North Somerset.

Working within key legislative frameworks including the Care Act 2014, the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Mental Health Act 1983, you will make defensible decisions in partnership with people with care and support needs, supporting them to take positive risks in order to promote and balance their independence, safety and wellbeing. You will support people to identify and build upon their existing assets as well as access new resources which will promote their independence and wellbeing and help prevent over-reliance on the social care system. You will be comfortable navigating significant levels of complexity and risk to support people to achieve the best possible outcomes.

 

You will have access to regular reflective supervision which empowers you to make evidence informed professional judgements drawing on the latest research, theories, legislation and policy frameworks. You will be given the freedom to practice in a truly strength-based way which recognises the importance of prevention and goes beyond traditional case management. You will maintain your professional registration with Social Work England and be committed to promoting social justice and challenging inequality and discrimination in all forms
