Are you passionate about ensuring adult carers and young carers get the support they need? Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference for families that need social care support?

To be considered for this position you will be able to evidence experience in carrying out social care assessments and planning support consistent with the expectations of the job profile of the Senior Social Care Assistant role. You’ll be able to convey an understanding of both the legislative and good practice contexts working with carers and young carers in all areas of social care practice. You’ll evidence excellent IT skills, ideally having used Liquid Adults System (LAS) database and other MS Office applications, and have experience presenting to small groups.

If you are organised, hardworking, enjoy being a part of a team but also able to work under your own initiative, motivated by helping others improve their practice, and enthusiastic about whole family and personalised approaches, we’d be happy to hear from you.
