Social Worker Adults-Mental Health

Location Worcester
Salary £22.00 - £24.90 per hour
Location for this role - Parkside, Bromsgrove.
We are looking for an Experienced Social Worker (37-hour post) who has experience of working in a strengths-based manner with adults with mental health difficulties, their carers, families, and wider support network. Candidates must have an extensive knowledge of the Care Act (2014), Mental Capacity Act (2005) and Mental Health Act (1983). Candidates must be able to work competently with adults with complex mental health needs where a skilled level of assessment, analysis and intervention is required - this may also include undertaking Section 42 safeguarding enquiries.
We are a supportive and friendly team that encourages staff to work autonomously and flexibly. You will be offered supervision and have access to other peer support and reflective space. This role is for 3 months initially, with the potential for it to be extended further. As a practitioner you will need to have the ability to be creative, innovative and search for solutions that are not always obvious. In Worcestershire we have adopted the 3 Conversations model of practice, which is a strengths-based approach to working with people. We are a new, friendly and passionate team and are looking to build on the strong foundations we have already developed.
