At Wiltshire Council we are changing the way we support young adults to move from Children’s to Adult Services and are recruiting a Team Manager to help us set up the new service.
The service will be called the Growing Up and Moving on Service and will support people aged 18 - 25 who have eligible Care Act needs.
About the role
As Team Manager you will have the opportunity to set up a brand-new service that supports young adults to fulfil their potential.
The service will initially work with young adults with learning disabilities but will expand its remit over the next two years to work with all people aged 18 - 25 with eligible Care Act needs.
This service will work closely with SEND, Children’s Social Care, Adult’s Social Care, and other organisations to ensure that people who are growing up move seamlessly between services.
You should be a qualified and registered Social Worker with a minimum of four years post qualification experience, and the ability to communicate with all types of people, including staff, children, young people, parents/carers, and vulnerable adults.
If you are an experienced social worker looking for your first management role or are already in a management position but want a new and exciting opportunity, we would love to hear from you.
