Adult Social Care in Worcestershire is changing - be part of our transformation journey!

As part of the Transformation of Mental Health Social Care in Worcestershire we have a number of qualified Social Work roles across both South and North Worcestershire.

We are looking for highly motivated, flexible individuals who have a proven track record of strengths and assets-based statutory social work in line with the Care Act, Mental Capacity Act and Mental Health Act; and will undertake duties expected of social workers in line with their Professional Capabilities Framework. The successful candidates will be providing social interventions that are based upon recovery practice and will be working collaboratively with Herefordshire & Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, who provide specialist mental health services across the County.

In Worcestershire we use the Three Conversations approach; a model that focuses on people's strengths, own assets, and those within their community. The successful candidates will demonstrate a highly competent level of skills in assessment, planning, intervention, and evaluation. Applicants will need to be Social Work England registered and be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the legislation that governs the role for which they are applying. Experience of undertaking safeguarding enquiries is essential, alongside experience of working in complex situations using professional judgement and a range of interventions.

We offer the opportunity for progression, excellent training including a thorough induction linked to your role, and professional development plans. You will receive supervision alongside weekly team reflective meetings and be working in a team of motivated, dedicated, and friendly colleagues. In Worcestershire we provide flexible and mobile working, with supporting technology, enabling you to work from a range of office bases, touch points and home.

In addition to the above, support will also be provided through The Social Work Academy (SWA) who work closely with the Principal Social Workers across both Directorates to ensure that learning is continuous and supports practice improvement. The SWA is responsible for learning programmes for Social Worker and Management development, together with Student placements and Practice Education.

***We are currently only considering applicants who have already completed their ASYE***
