About the role:

We currently have a vacancy for a part time AEW within the Hospital Adult Social Care Team based at Kettering General Hospital.
The Hospital Adult Social Care Team is a vibrant and fast paced team, providing social care support to Kettering General Hospital (KGH), for people from North Northamptonshire in Out Of County Hospitals and the 2 community hospitals and 2 Specialist Care Centre (SCC’s) in North Northamptonshire.

In line with current national guidance, we also operate a Discharge To Assess (DTA) process which requires us to carry out timely assessments for those people discharged to DTA beds in SCC’s or care homes in the North of the County and for people discharged to their own homes with DTA packages of care.
The remit of the team is to ensure timely, safe and appropriate discharges and to ensure flow through the hospital system, working closely with partners from health and the voluntary sector.

North Northamptonshire Council Adult Social Care is on an exciting innovation journey working towards the Three Conversation approach, a model that reemphasises focus on people, their strengths and the networks through the development of community and Inclusion hubs. The role of the Hospital Adult Social Care Team is evolving with this approach and will increasingly become more Community orientated and less hospital based in the coming months.

Promoting independence, choice and control is at the heart of this post. This is an exciting opportunity to work with people to maximise their potential for independence.
As part of the role you will manage an appropriate caseload by undertaking clear and accurate statutory assessments and reviews of individual service users in line with statutory guidance and best practice.

You will provide support plans for individual service users as appropriate, ensuring individuals are supported and encouraged to access community support that is available

You will work in partnership with individuals, their families and/or carers, professional staff in other agencies, service providers and other NNC colleagues in order to support vulnerable adults and their families to identify and arrange services that meet their needs and promote independence, choice and control.
Post holders may work with any combination, or all, of the following care groups: older people, people with physical, sensory, cognitive impairments, people with a learning disability and people with mental health problems.

The position is based at KGH (although the expectation would be that you are flexible across all the sites we cover in North Northamptonshire if required)

Job requirements
