A revitalised sense of focus and energy is taking our Adult Services in an exciting direction and we want you to help us to make the changes we know are needed. That’s why we need qualified, energetic and resilient Team Managers to help us achieve our aims.

Would you be interested in expanding and developing your career in Adult Social Care as the Front Door Team Manager in our new Independence and Advice Hub?

The hub is designed to contribute to improving the outcomes for vulnerable adults across the region through utilising a strengths based approach to maximise independence, developing partnership working with other organisations and managing demand in an effective and timely manner.

The job has a significant role in working collaboratively with professionals from other disciplines who may be involved in supporting the vulnerable adult, their family and community.  This will be achieved by adopting a highly collaborative approach that ensures internal and external resources work together to identify and deliver a range of services to appropriately meet need.

We are seeking an individual who is passionate about social work and providing a high quality service; someone who has the skills and drive to manage a service through a time of change and who can ensure staff are involved and supported in developing the service and with the confidence to operate in a multi-agency environment.

The successful applicants will play an integral role in fulfilling the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s statutory responsibilities under the Care Act 2014. The Team Manager is a key position committed to achieving the aims of helping people to achieve the outcomes that matter to them in their life and the successful applicant will work closely with multi- agency partners to protect an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a career minded individual to take a proactive role, expanding and developing their skills, within a high performing local authority.

Effective working relationships with relevant partners are key to the successful integration of the workforce and service delivery and this role is key to building and sustaining robust operational partnerships.

The role will involve managing performance, quality assurance, resources, customer demand and budgets, in collaboration with senior managers. The manager will be knowledgeable about managing social workers and other staff within single or multi-professional teams and will contribute to the development of practice, procedures and policy and specifically the professional development of the team they lead. 

To apply for this role you need to be dynamic, motivated work collaboratively and be keen to join a forward thinking authority. All appointments are subject to DBS clearances.

In return, the successful post holder can expect to work as part of a strong team and have access to quality training. Develop your interests, expand your knowledge, and become an expert at what you do.
