South Lanarkshire Council is an ambitious, high performing organisation with a clear vision and programme of action which is designed to improve the lives and prospects of everyone in South Lanarkshire.
The aim of Social Work Resources is to promote social welfare and provide effective care and support to meet the needs of vulnerable people in South Lanarkshire.
In partnership with community planning partners, voluntary and independent provider organisations, we offer a range of services designed to enable, support, improve and protect the health and social care of people using our services.
We are transforming Care at Home services through the development of exciting new multi-disciplinary approaches that will bring positive and life changing improvements to those who receive our services.
Backed by significant investment, we are seeking to establish new services that will operate seven days a week with a focus on supporting service users to regain or attain skills and abilities. Helping them to achieve as much independence as they can in their own homes.
To support this exciting new development we are looking for a Team Leader for our Home First service within South Lanarkshire’s Care at Home service.

This may be required following a period in hospital or to prevent admission to hospital.
As part of the Home First management teams, the Team Leader will play a key leadership and management role, responsible for the management and supervision of a multi-disciplinary team and the management and oversight of the assessment function as well as the management, delivery and development of Home First Care at Home services.
As one of the largest services provided by the Council and the HSCP, the Care at Home service plays a critical role in enabling individuals to remain at home in a way that promotes their wellbeing, dignity, privacy, respect and personal choices.
