Worcestershire is moving forward with a new model of strength and asset based social care and we want you to be part of this exciting journey! We strive to provide excellent support for older people and adults with physical disabilities, as well as their carers, that promote independence and good lives. We are continually striving to transform our social work service to ensure we recognise the real values of social work, are clear about our role, focus on assets and strengths and provide a timely, transparent and efficient service. We want to inspire excellence across Worcestershire, working closely with our partners, and we want our staff to spend as much time as they can with people. Staff are trusted with financial decision-making at the front line giving you and individuals more autonomy about their own care needs and services. If this approach excites you, then Worcestershire, which also has beautiful countryside, is right for you and your career.
Working in a dynamic multi-professional environment you will be working collaboratively with NHS and Adult Social Care colleagues to ensure that people receive the care and support necessary to meet their needs in the most appropriate setting – right care, right place, right time, and ensuring that effective patient flow is maintained across the health and social care system
