Qualified Social Worker – Wolverhampton – Physical Disabilities Learning Disability and Older People Team
Liquid Personnel is currently recruiting a Qualified Social Worker to join the unique team at an Wolverhampton based Physical Disabilities Learning Disability and Older People Team.
A new opportunity has opened up in our Physical Disabilities Learning Disability and Older People Team as we are now expanding due to overseeing a pioneering initiative to create a Virtual Ward in the community. This will ensure patients can have access to the acute treatment they need, with the right clinical oversight in their homes, without having to be in situ within the Hospital.
What will it give you as a Social Worker:
• Hybrid operations.
• Supportive team and management.
• Access to in-house training and wider team learning events.
• Excellent salary of £30 per hour
Primary Responsibilities as a Social Worker:
- To provide a professional social work service to adults (including older people) with physical, sensory or learning disabilities and their careers, (including those who are terminally ill) with a particular focus on enquiries into allegations of significant harm (abuse).
- Working with individuals and/or their families and multi-disciplinary colleagues, providing practical assistance, advice and information, working with community supports and liaison with other agencies, seeking the help of other professionals as necessary.
- To assess, sometimes jointly with staff from other teams, service users and carers needs including evaluating the level of risk, in accordance with agreed criteria and Departmental policies.
- You should be flexible and can meet the challenges of working in a fast-paced environment.
You will have experience of completing Social Care Needs assessment for people who have complex health needs around discharge, in order support a safe discharge from the virtual ward arrangement to their home, so it can be as seamless transition for them.
What we are looking for in a Social Worker:
• Social Work England registration
• Eligible to work in the UK
• Hold a full UK license
• post-qualified experience
• Degree level or equivalent in Social Work
