About the role
Do you want to help people access the care and support that they need?
Then working as a Health and Social Care Service Advisor in Health and Social Care Connect may be the role for you.
You do not need any health or social care experience as we provide comprehensive training and a supportive environment in which to gain the knowledge of the range of health and social care support and services that are available for adults in the community and how these can be accessed by, and for the residents of East Sussex.
We are looking for candidates who:
- Have good IT and communication skills;
- Have some customer service experience, not necessarily in a health or social care;
- Are self-motivated and who possess personal resilience to manage the large volumes of referrals coming into our service;
- Are able to work in a fast paced environment.
This is not a hands on caring or support worker role but one that provides a valuable service to the community, to health and social care professionals and partner organisations such as the emergency services. We provide ongoing training and the opportunity to develop and progress a career in health and social care.
This is an office based role, and staff work shift on a rota basis covering the hours of 8am to 10pm including weekends and bank holidays. Whilst this is a 24/7 service, advisors are not expected to work every evening or weekend and there are pay enhancements for weekend working. You would not be expected to work night shifts in this role.
