This is a rolling advert and applications will be considered as and when received.

In Kensington and Chelsea, we support people’s independence and wellbeing, and work hard to enable them to live in the community with dignity, choice and control. Our challenges have become particularly acute during the pandemic but, by sharing facilities and expertise in a bi-borough agreement with Westminster City Council, we have sustained joined-up health and social care services with residents at their heart. We continue to serve our community, but we have adapted to online working where possible, to offer our team flexibility. Our standards are high, but our people have the time, resources and commitment to care.

The Role:

Offering a mix of front-line case management and line management, this role allows you to maintain your operational skills while developing a strategic perspective. Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team you’ll ensure practice standards remain high and that we offer truly person-centred care. We look after a diverse population, which includes people living in some of the nation’s most deprived areas. As you can expect a caseload of less than 15 cases and no more than three or four direct reports, there’s plenty of opportunity to offer high-quality support..

Please refer to the Job Description for further information on the role.

About You:

This is an excellent step up to a management role for a qualified and registered Social Worker with significant experience of working with vulnerable adults. Enthusiastic, compassionate and highly motivated, you’ll be ready for the challenge of supervising and developing other people within a close-knit, supportive team. You’ll bring sound knowledge of the Care Act (2014) and experience of undertaking safeguarding enquiries, investigations and risk assessments. Your collaborative approach means you are capable of promoting partnership working with key agencies.  Well-organised and calm under pressure, you will have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills.
In return, you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays.
