Job advert Adult Care Point 2 (ACP2) provides a first point of contact for customers requiring a needs assessment under the Care Act 2014.
Team members will begin, and in some circumstances complete, a statutory needs assessment with adult customers who are approaching WSCC for social care support. In most cases we will provide advice, information and signposting or prescribe equipment to support people to remain independent. Where appropriate, those people requiring on-going face to face assessment will be passed to locality teams.
Senior Practitioner Occupational Therapists in the team are responsible for managing the triage of assessment referrals, allocating work to team members, providing support and supervision to Occupational Therapists and Assessment Officers and supporting the Team Manager. They are also responsible for scrutiny and sign off of work and supporting the continuing development of assessment skills within the team. Given the focus on staff supervision, support and development, this role is an excellent stepping stone for those considering a pathway to management.
We also offer an attractive benefits package including a childcare voucher scheme, flexible working and Local Government Pension Scheme.
When applying, please ensure that you address the key skills as listed in the role profiles or your application will not be considered.
