Social Worker - Transitions Team
Social Workers - Children and Young People with Disabilities
A new and exciting time to join Children and Young People with disabilities
South Quadrant Children and Young People with Disabilities (CYPWD) are currently running a pilot for the 0-25 team meaning we work with children and young people aged between 0-25 who meet the criteria for intervention from the CYPWD team
The 0-25 service for children and young people with disabilities and/or additional needs brings children and adult social workers together to provide a single service to support a young person from birth until the age 25, avoiding the need for a formal transition at the age of 18.
The role of the social worker in the young people with disabilities team is to manage a caseload of children/young people with disabilities requiring assessment of their needs, advice, support and development of care plans and support packages in accord with practice guidance.
Within your team you will provide an integrated service to help families meet the needs of their children/young adults, build their resilience and support young people progress from childhood into adulthood.
What you'll need to join our Social Work teams
To play a key part in transforming the lives of children and families, you'll be a DIPSW, CQSW, CSS or equivalent graduate. This will be backed up by post-qualification experience as a children's social worker. Open to change and ready to innovate, you will be keen to join an environment where you can stretch yourself professionally, make an impact individually and deliver positive outcomes collaboratively.
The role requires you to be mobile throughout a wide operational area including travelling around the County of Essex and beyond, transporting service users and their belongings and to be able to do so in an emergency. Driving licence and car or ability to meet the mobility requirements of the role through other means is essential.
Essex County Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment.
We seek the best talent from the widest pool of people as diversity is key to our success.
