Adult Services in West Berkshire has an opportunity for a Social Worker who is registered with Social Work England to join our friendly and supportive West Locality team. We are a small Local Authority with a mixture of urban and rural communities which offers great variety and positive challenges. West Berkshire Council is embracing a new way of working with a strong focus on localities and a strengths based approach to the people that we work with. 

You will work collaboratively with Occupational Therapists and Social Care Practitioners in a large team to undertake assessments and reviews of adults who need care and support in the community. The work is very varied and will involve working with adults with a wide range of needs and disabilities.

Experience of working with people with Learning Disabilities will be of benefit for this post and you will need a working knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act and Safeguarding processes.

We welcome applications from Newly Qualified Social Workers.

West Berkshire Council offer excellent employment benefits such as flexible working, access to a wide range of relevant training, local government pension scheme, family friendly policies, a range of local discounts and much more. You will also be entitled to a generous annual leave entitlement of 28 days per annum rising to a maximum of 33 days. 

A relocation package of up to £8000 may be payable.
