What is the job role?
SiCol is a Collective of Adult Social Care Professionals employed by Coventry City Council and its work is closely aligned with the Crisis Home Treatment Team and the Community Mental Health Teams. SICol seeks to deliver practical support and social advocacy on complex social problems. It aims to provide a fast-track multi-disciplinary response premised on principles of co-production and ensuring timely and expedited access to social interventions.
The role of Team Leader within the Axholme arm of SICol is to provide social support to individuals who are experiencing ill mental health and are in crisis with a specific emphasis on promoting their independence, enabling them to take control of their lives with advice, guidance, and practical support. This could be in the form of undertaking casework and providing urgent practical help. The service will work with individuals within their homes for up to a 12-week period, but this could be longer depending on the presenting issues.
This post is exempted under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and as such appointment to this post will be conditional upon the receipt of a satisfactory response to a check of police records via Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a confident team leader that can work independently supporting individuals within their home setting and out in the community.
You will work in partnership with Individuals, Statutory, voluntary, and charitable organisations to support individuals to achieve their desired outcomes and reduce the social stressors that are impacting their mental health.
You will need to be resilient, have good written and verbal communication skills, and be able to present cases in a multi–disciplinary setting. You will also work within the team of Axholme Services working alongside colleagues in the management of the service. If you are looking for a role that offers diversity with no two days being the same this is the role for you.
