| £28,413 - £32,496 per annum (salary dependent on experience) | Temporary Full Time, Up to 1 year | 

About the role
An opportunity has arisen for a full-time Social Worker in one of KCC’s Young People’s Teams within the Lifespan Pathway.  The position is a temporary contract covering maternity leave, expected to be for up to one year.
 
The team has been in place for eighteen months and this is an exciting time to join a growing and dynamic team as we build and consolidate good practice in this area of social work.
 
You will be involved in assessing the needs of disabled young people aged between 16 and 25 as they transition into adulthood and planning with them support to build their skills and independence. 
 
Our team consists of Social Workers and Social Work Assistants and you will be required to work closely with our colleagues in Children’s Social Work Teams, a range of teams within the Lifespan Pathway, and other key agencies, such as Health, Education and the voluntary sector.
 
The team covers a large geographical area and either of the bases of Rainbow Centre (Ashford) and Brook House (Whitstable) could be considered as your contractual base.  However, there would be an expectation that you are able to work flexibly across the whole area.
 
As a new service there is an extensive training and development programme in place and you will be provided with support and opportunities to further develop your own knowledge and skills with regular supervision.
 
About You
The successful candidate will hold a degree in social work (CQSW, DipSW or equivalent) or equivalent in a related professional qualification, be HCPC registered and have a variety of post-qualification experience of working with children and / or adults and their families.
 
You will be highly motivated and demonstrate excellent social work knowledge, skills and values to deliver the highest quality service to disabled young people, their families and carers. Experience in either Children’s or Adult’s Services would be essential, including child protection and/or adult safeguarding.
 
This post is considered by Kent County Council to be a customer-facing position. The Council therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements.  The appropriate standards are set out in the Job Description/Person Specification.

This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure application to the Disclosure and Barring service and registration as a qualified Social Worker with the Health and Care Professions Council.
