Job Details

Job Title: Social Care Worker
Salary: £27,687 - £29,669 per annum 
35 hours per week
Location: County Hall, Worcester

The Role
The Adult Front Door Service is the first point of contact for individuals seeking health and wellbeing support. Responding to telephone calls and online referrals, Social Care Workers will provide a person-centred response to requests and effectively support individuals in Worcestershire to live well and as independently as possible.

This is a great opportunity for the right person to be part of an exciting transformation of the new Adult Front Door Service for the Peoples Directorate.

The Service supports people at the earliest opportunity to maximise the effectiveness of early intervention and prevention by:

  • Providing advice and signposting to local wellbeing services and resources.
  • Working in partnership with our colleagues to deliver short term intervention in the Community.
  • Referring on to our Social Work teams for appropriate Health & Social Care support.

Our aim is to prevent or delay individuals from developing longer term care and support needs by enabling them to be healthy for as long as possible, self-managing long-term conditions.

If you would like any additional information or an informal discussion, please contact Nicky Pearson at
