Be Bold. Be Birmingham. Be your best in Adult Social Care.

Join our ambitious, innovative team and you can have the best of both worlds – the autonomy to bring new ideas and manage your own workload, combined with ongoing support and supervision.

About the role

Working with adults, including some with complex needs, and their carers, your role will involve creating support and enablement plans, arranging services and ensuring that plans are monitored and reviewed to ensure citizens’ wellbeing and safety.

There are opportunities to collaborate with colleagues from other agencies to develop services appropriate to people’s individual needs relating to culture, religion, age, gender, sexuality and disability. So, as well as working to enable the independence and quality of life of citizens, you can play a key role in helping us to keep improving the quality of our service. 

About us 

Birmingham is a vibrant, courageous, resilient city, where great things are happening. And that goes far beyond hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games. It’s about the renewed investment, ongoing regeneration and the fierce ambition we have for the future of our brilliant city and citizens. 

We’re not afraid to say we want to be the best in adult social care – because that means better outcomes for the individuals we’re all here for. We make sure our teams have what they need to be at their best, too. The diversity of our communities and scale of our service means a greater variety of social care challenges and more scope for innovation. Whether you’re in one of our 10 teams piloting new systems or bringing your own bold ideas to approach the way we work, you can find lots of ways to keep learning and growing.

What we offer in return

We’re committed to creating an environment that promotes diversity and inclusivity, healthy lifestyle choices, wellbeing and balance. We’ll empower you to be the best you can be, with coaching, mentoring and training programmes that meet your professional and personal development needs at every stage of your career with us.
