Edinburgh is an exciting city and excellent opportunities exist to join us and contribute towards helping all our citizens flourish. The Edinburgh City Health & Social Care Partnership (EHSCP) is on a journey to transform the way in which Social Work delivers support and services. There is a transformation programme to ensure that we support adults and older adults with multiple and complex needs and with increasing levels of frailty to live as independently as possible. We work to ensure that we support older people and their families/carers as effectively as possible. We work effectively together in order to ensure that the most vulnerable within our City get the right service in the right place at the right time. We work in partnership across services with our health colleagues and a broad range of partners and we have a key priority in relation to shifting the balance of care and promoting more effective early intervention and preventative supports.
We are looking for Social Workers who are energetic, imaginative, creative and resilient, who can make the best use of local resources. Trauma informed, relationships and strengths based social work is at the heart of our practice. We use the Three Conversations approach to understand what really matters to people and families, what needs to happen next for them, and how we can be most useful. We also have the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013 at the heart of our practice, to provide a range of choices to people for how they are provided with the support they need.
You will undertake a range of statutory tasks including assessments and support planning, risk assessment and risk management and Carers’ assessments. You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team and will support adults, their families and carers, to balance the complex areas of risk and need with choice and rights. You will also be able to provide advice, support, guidance and, if necessary, interventions, should an adult be at risk of harm and in need of protection under the Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 or Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.
You will work in a supportive, well established teams and have regular supervision and training.
This post is considered Regulated Work with Vulnerable Children and/or Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council.
We’re committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.
Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
