An exciting opportunity has arisen to work for Adult Social Services to support patients discharge planning from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Work in this team would suit someone interested in complex case work with a specialist focus on safeguarding.
With a flexible base, either in a hospital and/or community setting, you will enjoy working in partnership with a wide range of health professionals in a time challenged and fast-paced environment. We are proud of our multi-disciplinary working environment and our positive working relationships with our Health colleagues.
You will manage a case load working closely with colleagues and partners in the assessment process to achieve timely discharges in line with the Care Act. As an experienced social worker, you will undertake a range of assessments such as Care Act Assessments; Discharge to Assess Process; Mental Capacity Assessments; and will lead on Safeguarding enquiries.
It is a great time to join us as we embrace our ‘living well’ agenda to support people to be independent, resilient and well. We’re investing in social care and changing the conversation for social work to provide better outcomes, building on the strengths of individuals.
We are committed to facilitating a learning environment and encourage opportunities for on-going professional development including supervising students and supporting social workers to become practice educators.
It is essential that you have a professional Social Work qualification (MA or BA Social Work, DipSW or CQSW) and you are registered with Social Work England.
