We currently have an exciting opportunity for a permanent full time Social Worker to join the Wiltshire Adult Social Care Team at Salisbury District Hospital, Salisbury.

LIVE ??? WORK ??? CARE

This is an established team that works together with hospital staff and our customers to achieve safe and timely hospital discharges. We also provide a service to the Salisbury Hospice which is on the hospital site.

We are currently working with the hospital and partner organisations to achieve a new fully Integrated Discharge Team to streamline our discharge processes.

About the role

You will be expected to hold a caseload and undertake assessments of care and support needs to facilitate discharge. You can expect to receive effective supervision from an experienced social worker; you'll play an important role in helping vulnerable people to live as independently as possible.

From taking responsibility of assessments through to identifying where vulnerable adults may be at risk, you'll share our passion of supporting individuals as they fulfil their potential.

About you

The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills and have the ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Care Act 2014 is essential and experience in applying these legislative frameworks is desirable.

You must be HCPC registered.

The team is able to support new graduates who are looking to complete the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE).
