Social Worker - Early Intervention
About the Role
Working to support adults, and their families, who have complex social needs and are more vulnerable as a result of disability, exclusion, or diminished capacity, you'll maximise their potential to live independently.
With case work focusing on the most complex and challenging adult cases, you'll ensure that adults and their families are safeguarded. You'll share ideas and best practice, providing specialist advice as part of a multi-disciplinary team sharing your knowledge as a Social Worker.
We currently have an opportunity for Social Workers, within our Mid Essex area.
Our Mid Essex area is at the centre of our county covering the Braintree, Chelmsford, Maldon and Witham. With the only City in the County and rural villages it is a diverse locality to work in. Bordering all other areas of the county you will have the opportunity to work closely with colleagues across Essex County Council. This is also one of our most connected area of the county, with excellent travel links including direct trains to London.
Early Intervention Team
This is a great opportunity to join a team focused on preventative approaches to social care moving at a fast pace where your Social work experience can be used to impact vulnerable adults lives often at the point of referral into social care.
With us, you can achieve more - for yourself as well as the vulnerable adults you work to support. We're always looking for new ways to deliver even better services, Social Workers play an integral role in our preventative approach to Social Care. We encourage our multi-disciplinary teams to share their ideas and experience. We work together to get things done. Bring your positive, proactive attitude, and we'll empower you to make the most of your experience as a Social Worker within Essex County Council (ECC) Adult Social Care services.
To apply you should be a qualified and experienced social worker with a current Social Work England registration. This role involves travelling around Essex. A driving licence and car - or the ability to meet the mobility requirements of the role through other means - is essential.
However, given the current pandemic Essex County Council continues to review its ways of working during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. We continue to work within adult social care with a focus on "digital first", where the default position is, where possible, for our staff to work from home (this is continuously reviewed).
