We are looking to recruit a skilled and experienced practitioner as Support Worker within the Adult Social Work Team.
The role of Support Worker within the Adult and Learning Disability Social Work team is very varied and can range from supporting adults to make phone calls and attend appointments to supporting adults who experience poor mental health and are affected by hoarding or alcohol and drug problems. Every day is different and problem solving skills are key to the role. Our shared aim is to support adults to remain in their own homes, maintaining and increasing independence and working towards and achieving their own goals.
The Support Workers will have regular planning and review sessions with the lead assessors who commission the work and will have monthly supervision with an experienced Social Worker.
Applicants should hold an SVQ3 Social Services and Health Care, or other relevant SCQF Level 7 qualification or, where the essential qualification is not held, have a minimum of 3 years previous relevant experience.
The post holder must be able to travel efficiently and effectively between various work locations within Orkney to meet the operational requirements of the Service.
This post is subject to membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme in respect of regulated work with adults.
Prospective applicants are invited to discuss the post by contacting Cathy Martin, Service Manager, Adult and Learning Disability Services on 01856 873535.
Closing Date: Sunday 14 January 2024
