Advanced Social Work Practitioner

Salary: £35,745 - £38,890

An opportunity has arose for a temporary post of full time Advanced Social Work Practitioner (ASWP) within the Young Adults Team.  This is a great opportunity for someone that wants to develop their skills across Adult Services and Children’s Services.  It is also an opportunity to develop or enhance additional skills associated with line management or supervision.

The Young Adults Team work with young people with disabilities aged 16-25. The work is primarily with young people with learning disabilities, but also some young people with a physical disability or complex health needs, to transition from Children’s Services into their adult life. The work is very varied and requires working in a multi-agency manner with Worcestershire Children First (WCF), Special Educational Needs Department (SEND), health colleagues, schools and colleges to ensure young people get the whole range of options they deserve when moving into adulthood.  The work involves using Liquid logic in both the adult and children’s systems, and using both children and adults legislation effectively. 

ASWP’s will have line management responsibility for a group of Social Workers/Social Care Workers and will be providing regular Supervision. There is an expectation that when required you will Chair Best Interest Meetings, so an understanding of the Mental Capacity Act and the role of the Court of Protection and Public Guardian is required.

The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate strong Leadership Skills and are committed to supporting the Social Workers career progression. It would therefore be desirable that you have completed PE1 and PE2 or working towards this.

We would love to interview anyone that has a passion in this area combined with great social work skills.

Due to the potential changes and the introduction of an All-Age Disability service within Worcestershire, this post is temporary for 6 months.

HOW TO APPLY:

Applications can be submitted online or by sending a copy of your up to date CV and an expression of interest detailing what makes you a suitable candidate for the post (2 sides A4 max) to:  socialworkopps@worcestershire.gov.uk

If you wish to discuss further, please contact Sally Garbett on 01905 843017  

Closing date: 30th January 2022

Interview date: to be confirmed
