About the role
Brighton and Hove is a vibrant and exciting place to live and work and an opportunity has arisen to join our Hospital Responsive Services team.
Hospital social work is changing and we are at the forefront of this through Discharge to Assess and a move towards community-based practice wherever possible.
We are looking for a full-time social worker to join our service who is able to work in a flexible and responsive manner, rotating through both a variety of acute and community settings.
We are looking for someone who has strong assessment and communication skills, clear and up-to-date knowledge of relevant legislation, such as the Care Act and Mental Capacity Act and someone who enjoys working in fast-paced, multi-disciplinary settings.
We highly recommend you read the ‘Maximise your Chances’ below before you apply for this job. It is important you are able to show how you meet the Person Specification when applying. Not following this guidance is likely to reduce your chances of success.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.
From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
Please note that this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, and is subject to a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Check.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as disabled, male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
