An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a fully registered social worker to join the busy Goole Community Wellbeing Team based in the Goole Council Offices, however working on a blended approach to include home working. The team covers a wide geographical area and the ability to drive is essential for which a mileage allowance can be claimed. We have several flexible working policies that can be considered as the ERYC is committed to promoting a good work life balance and we value our workforce.
You will work in accordance with the Care Act 2014, undertaking person centred assessments in the community or hospital setting, assisting in the creation of collaborative care and support plans and monitoring, and reviewing support thereafter. Social workers also participate in the ‘duty rota’ which can involve dealing with urgent situations. An understanding of policy, operational practice and procedures relating to adults and carers is desirable.
You will work within the legislative framework relating to adult social care and will have some knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards, along with an awareness of safeguarding vulnerable adults.
Excellent communication skills, an ability to manage your time effectively, working under pressure and being flexible in your approach are essential requirements of the role. You will also possess excellent written and IT skills and be expected to input data on the adult information database, Azeus, which is essential in collating data for the performance agenda, as well as compiling a complete individual electronic social care record. Performance expectations are set for the team as a whole and on an individual basis to meet demand and enhance the customer journey.
All new staff will receive a comprehensive induction, regular supervision, employee development reviews and training opportunities. The team currently operates between Monday and Friday.
