Job Description



We are pleased to announce that we have a secondment opportunity for 1 FTE Social Care Assessor in the Peripatetic Team, Adult Services.

We are looking to provide a secondment for a fixed period of 9 months. Your role as a Social Care Assessor in the Peripatetic Team will mean you would be working in Health and Social Care Teams across Devon County Council which have been identified as needing additional support in their Team due to recruitment gaps, sickness absence or increase in workload.

This offers a unique opportunity to develop and progress your skills in a variety of settings. The new Hybrid way of working means that a lot of your work can be done remotely, although some travel to the office or to complete face to face assessments/attend meetings may be required.

Devon County Council social care workforce ensures that the people of Devon can access excellent community assets and resources. Be part of our ongoing commitment to outstanding delivery and integrated care.

You will be allocated work by the Team Manager of the team you support but will also have regular supervision from your line manager in the Peripatetic Team.

In addition, as part of the Peripatetic Team you will join in with our monthly Team Meetings and weekly Catch-Up Sessions.

Any learning you gain from your time in the secondment we hope will be transferred back into your team.

If you are interested in joining the team please contact Kat Dwyer Team Manager for the Peripatetic Team on 01392 382245/ 07971 727510.
