Are you looking to make a difference in Adult Social Care? Brent Council presents a unique opportunity for you to choose among various teams.
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent's diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
We have recently completed our restructuring process and now looking to fill the posts that have become available across Adult Social Care teams that include:
• Hospital Discharge
• Integrated Reablement and Rehabilitation
• Mental Health
• Community Review
• Commissioning, Contracting and Market Management
Successful candidates will be offered a choice among these teams, to support our vision of improving health and well-being outcomes for our residents, working in partnership with the local health service and the independent and voluntary sector to provide personal and practical support to help people lead full and active lives, maintain their independence and dignity with choice and control.
We are looking for Qualified Social Workers (who are registered with HCPC) with excellent communication skills, experience in carrying out assessments and support planning, especially within a fast paced team.
This role will offer you the opportunity to develop your multi disciplinary working skills as well as enhancing your negotiation and organizational abilities.
You will have supportive managers and you will work within a dedicated team of colleagues with good knowledge of the discharge process.
Brent Council values the diversity of its community and aims to have a workforce that reflects this and therefore encourage applications from all sections of the community.
Applications are particularly welcome from people with disabilities and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender) applicants as they are under-represented across the council.
All organisations and individuals who work with children and young people, or are involved in providing services for them have a duty to safeguard and promote their welfare.
We are committed to safer recruitment and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Before you join Brent Council, you will need to provide your National Insurance (NI) number and undergo a Home Office Standard I.D. check.
