We want talented social care professionals like you to bring skill and passion and join us in our commitment to make the principles of The Care Act 2014 a reality for the people of Coventry within the All Age Disability Service.

That’s easy to say but what does that mean, what’s our commitment to you?

Well in Coventry we recognise that this requires:

- A commitment to strength-based practice, risk enablement and “Making Safeguarding Personal”
- Complex but manageable caseloads
- Effective supervision and support
- An inspiring learning and development offer
- Access to learning resources such as “Research in Practice For Adults”
- Supporting practice education and newly qualified social workers
- A focus on practice quality
- Commitment to pre and post qualifying development opportunities

You will need to have a recognised professional Social Work qualification (MA/BA/BSc in Social Work, Diploma in Social Work or CQSW) and HCPC registration.

We are looking for staff with a range of experience from newly qualified to experienced staff. We need people with knowledge of social work practice and legislation including the Care Act 2014 and Mental Capacity Act 2005, a good understanding of personalisation and direct payments and excellent assessment and analysis skills.

You will work closely with professionals from a range of agencies including health, education and social care, police and housing services in order to improve outcomes for people.

We are looking for social workers who are committed to achieving the best for the people of Coventry. You will be joining a great team of people who are passionate about the city, its people and its exciting prospects.

We are delighted that Coventry has recently been awarded the UK City of Culture 2021. This is a win for Coventry, a win for our residents and a win for diversity. The economic impact will be huge for the city and the West Midlands. We’re already beginning to see the impact of this across the city from our brand new offices in Friargate.

Coventry is a vibrant, multicultural city with a fascinating and inspiring story to tell and an arts and cultural scene that deserves its place in the national spotlight. As UK City of Culture 2021 we will be able to show everyone why we are so proud of our city and the people who live, work and study here.
