Social Worker - £35,382 - £39,246 per annum based on a 36 hour working week

Are you looking for a role that is rewarding and offers a supportive working environment? Have you considered a Social Worker post in a hospital team setting? There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone return home after a hospital stay, back to their own bed, in their own home with all their belongings around them.  

Our team works with the integrated service to support people at home and avoid a hospital admission where possible. Our team arrange support for people being discharged home which would include the Discharge to Assess scheme and supporting the person through the Care Act assessments and help with planning long term care if required. There are plenty of learning opportunities and daily support from experienced managers.

Senior Social Worker - £40,227 - £44,619 per annum based on a 36 hour working week

Are you looking for the next step in your career or perhaps ready for a new challenge? We have Senior Social Worker opportunities for experienced Social Workers with substantial experience in a social care setting. If you want a role that makes a real difference to someone’s journey out of hospital back to their home or help them to decide on what support they want and need going forward, then apply now.     

Although the role is based with the hospital team you may be working with the community services. We are looking for people with confident assessment skills, knowledge of the relevant legislation such as the Care Act and the Mental Capacity Act and people who also want to supervise and support staff as well as shaping the team in this senior role.

To apply, you will need to be registered with Social Work England and you will also need a full driving license and the use of a car.

Go on, put that application in and join our team, we are waiting for you…
