Are you looking for a new career that will enable you to make a difference to people’s lives by encouraging positive wellbeing and independence amongst adults with learning disabilities? Our Learning Disabilities and Autism Teams are locality based and offer social work and occupational therapy services to those who require longer term social care support. We work with individuals and communities to promote resilience, independence, and wellbeing.
The key responsibilities of a Social Care Practitioner are to provide person centred and outcome focused assessments to identify the support required to enable customers to make positive changes in their lives. You will promote customer independence, choice, and well-being in the community, using universal services and support where appropriate.
This is a challenging role, and you will be supported by experienced Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, and highly experienced peer Social Care practitioners.
This role is fast paced so you should be able to manage caseloads effectively and have excellent communication skills to be able to work collaboratively with multi professional teams. You will hold an NVQ Level 4 in Health and Social Care or equivalent or the ability to work towards this qualification and have experience of working within a Health or Social Care setting.
