We currently have vacancies for both a full time and a part time (24 hours per week) dynamic and invigorated level 2 Social Workers to join our established community team in North Dorset.

This is a team is co-located with the local Community Health Team, so experience of partnership working with health and experience of working with adults (older people and adults with physical disabilities) would be an advantage as we work towards integrated practice.
