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.

Social workers manage a caseload, including assessment of risk and purposeful intervention through direct work, commissioned services and review.

We currently have several opportunities for Social Workers, within our Mid Essex area within Early Interventions, Ongoing Support and several other teams.
