Multiple Locations
Closing date:
12 December 2021 at midnight
Are you a qualified social worker who thrives on being at the forefront of innovative practice and new ways of working?
Do you have a passion and commitment to work alongside people to enable them to live their best life possible?
Do you want to be part of a developing dynamic and creative culture, which seeks to connect individuals and their communities, by asking the right questions at the right time, to support people to find the right solutions?

About Us:
North Northamptonshire Council has given us the opportunity to really look at how we provide Adult Social Care on a more localised level, leading to lots of exciting innovations and a new model of working which puts people and their communities firmly at the heart of what we do.

Our Approach:
We use a strengths-based, outcome focussed approach, and utilise the 3 conversations model. This means engaging people in a conversational model which allows them to tell us what is important and really matters to them, and then taking timely action to support them to connect with resources that help them continue with their chosen life – either with support or independently.

About You:
We know that our staff are key to our success, and we are seeking people with ambition, creativity, and commitment to our values to help us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our customers.
……… Do your skills set, and values match our ambitions?
• You are a qualified Social Worker, registered with Social Work England. We welcome applications from both experienced and newly qualified social workers
• You are proactive, and can think creatively
• You exercise professional curiosity rather than accept things at face value or make decisions based on assumptions
• You demonstrate problem solving abilities, working alongside people to enable them to find their own solutions
• You have a real commitment to identifying and promoting people’s strengths, hopes and aspirations
• You have a passion for connecting and working in partnership with people and their situation.
• You are willing and able to work collaboratively with a wide range of partners, including community groups and the voluntary sector
• You understand the legislative frameworks which govern the work we do as adult social care workers

The Community teams provide support for adults with emphasis on promoting their strengths, maximising independence, and opportunities to achieve their identified outcomes. We are geographically located to provide a community-based focus in each area across North Northamptonshire. Our teams have a rich experience and knowledge base providing a great opportunity to learn and grow.

We have Social Worker vacancies in our Community Adult Social Care teams across the North, based in Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, and East Northants.
