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 adults’ team which promotes professional development.

This post will provide support to the West Kent North (WKN) area, working directly to the Senior Practitioner and Team Manager for the WKN Social Work Team. You will be responsible for managing a caseload of complex work and ensuring quality of care needs assessments and care and support to the public.

This is an exciting post for someone to develop their skills and experience of working with a complex caseload, using a strength-based approach to resolve issues and empower individuals to move beyond challenging circumstances in their lives. It needs the use of multiple approaches to resolve or deal with complex scenarios and presentations, thus providing experience in complex work and problem resolutions.

We are looking for motivated professionals who are interested in working in an integrated team and ready to embrace new ways of working, to help further shape our services. 

This post is within a team that works collaboratively with health and other partnership agencies and focuses on promoting a person’s independence.
