SOCIAL WORKER VACANCY

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 with a Learning Disability 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

West Northants Council, Adult Social Care is on an exciting journey of transformation which 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. The Learning Disability team is made up of two localised Hubs, Northampton and South Northants.

Our Approach

We use a strengths based, outcomes focussed approach engaging people in a conversational model which allows them to tell us what is important and really matters to them. This approach assists us to take 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 have experience of working with people with a Learning Disability and are passionate about identifying their strengths and supporting them to achieve their outcomes.

• You are proactive, and have the ability to 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 are a great team player, willing to share knowledge and expertise with colleagues in your team.

• You love a challenge, and have an openness to learn and change.

• You put your ability to analyse and take action in challenging situations to good use, and are able to evidence positive risk taking skills – knowing how to balance individual rights against risks.

• 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 as well as colleagues in health and other sectors.
