Social Worker – Adults & Older People

We have a full time (37 hours) opportunity for a Social Worker to work within the Physical Disability Team. This involves working with individuals between the ages of 18yrs – 75yrs with a range of physical disabilities and associated Informal Carers. We rely heavily on our Social Workers to deliver proactive, preventative and personalised care of the highest quality.

In this role, you will be expected to take the lead on a variety of cases, supported by a multi-disciplinary team to ensure that the care provided directly meets the individual’s needs. You’ll carry out assessments, identifying often complex needs and planning and implementing the required action.

We will rely on you to be vigilant in identifying safeguarding issues with a focus on supporting individuals to be protected from harm and abuse, whilst working within the principles of Making Safeguarding Personal.

As you’ll be working with adults, it will be crucial that you work in partnership with them in order to establish needs and ensure they’re met.

This isn’t just about delivering care, it’s about providing service users with choice and control of their lives and empowering independence.

About you

Needless to say, you’ll need to be a qualified and HCPC registered social worker to be considered for this role.

We’re also looking for someone who truly understands the complex needs of vulnerable adults, backed up by proven knowledge and experience.

We want people who are going to contribute positively to the work we do and the environment we’ve created. A can-do attitude and flexible approach goes a long way with us, especially when accompanied by a smile.

If you have the confidence to make decisions that matter and pride yourself on your great ideas, no matter how small, then we want to hear from you.

About us

We’ve created a productive and collaborative environment throughout Adults services, ensuring that no individual feels overly burdened or alone in their work.

Our ‘Transforming Lives’ initiative has been put in place to support our delivery of the Care Act. This will see vulnerable adults in the county receive appropriate care that directly matches their needs.

In every aspect of the council, we promote a culture in which people feel continually supported, in their work, in their lives and in pursuing their ambitions. We also believe firmly in empowering our people to make big decisions that impact our service users.

We have developed an environment where all staff are listened to, opinions and ideas are valued and anyone can influence the future of their service.

Based in the incredible cities of Cambridgeshire and surrounding towns across the county, we take as much pride in our work as we take in our stunning surroundings. With such an iconic location, happy environment and supportive culture, Cambridgeshire County Council is somewhere where you can achieve great things.
