We have an opportunity for a number of Assistant Practitioners to join us in a central team, providing support across the county.


You will be assisting Adult Social Care teams in supporting those people newly discharged from hospital. You will be assessing and reviewing individuals need for care and support, taking a strength-based approach and arranging services where required to make sure those needs are being met.


It’s an exciting time to join us in Adult Social Services as we continue working under the Living Well approach to care. Our approach seeks to embed our vision to support people to be independent, resilient and well in the community. To maintain our approach, we’re investing in our people – who will make it happen and take us forward on our journey.


If you are committed to a person-centred and strengths-based way of working, we would be interested in hearing from you. In return, we can offer you the opportunity to work in an exciting and challenging area of Social Care, and you will be supported to develop into the role with regular supervision, training and peer support.


All our office-based roles are currently working from home as part of our Smarter Working plans and to support the health and safety of all our colleagues. We anticipate that working remotely will be a key feature of this role.  Our technology platform and equipment are first class, enabling you to connect and collaborate remotely. We ask that you have in place good Broadband connectivity.


There will be a future requirement once current restrictions are lifted to make face to face visits, so we are interested in hearing from candidates across the county.


Interviews will be held across 15th,19th,20th and 21st April via video technology.


Please note that due to this being an urgent requirement, we will be reviewing applications as they are received and may bring the closing date forward if we have received sufficient applications prior to this date.


Closing date: Midday on 8 April 2021
