The post holder will be responsible working as a Social Care Assessor within the new Reviewing Team in Eastern undertaking reviews. The day-to-day management will sit under a new Reviewing Team Manager in Eastern and the Disability Lead, Leo Trimming in Eastern.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the new Reviewing Team, with a main focus on individuals with Disabilities 18-65 years, consisting of 2 Social workers and 2.7 FTE Social Care assessors in the beautiful area of Eastern Devon (which stretches from the border of Dorset to Okehampton, and includes Exeter). The teams will ostensibly be based in Exeter, but the posts will mainly require mobile working and working from home flexibly.
These workers will be allocated reviews from Adult Social Care Teams and Care Direct Plus waiting lists. The emphasis will be upon a strengths-based approach leading to greater levels of independence for people living with disabilities. The Reviewing team workers will be working closely with our DCC Reaching For Independence Enabling Teams to maximise independence.
They will review outcomes, identify and support people to achieve their goals which lead to increased self-support. Exploring the use of technologies which enable autonomy will be a crucial element in this work.
You will offer support and guidance to colleagues and providers on an individual basis so that they are skilled and empowered to reframe expectations, demonstrate strengths-based practice in supporting people to identify and achieve outcomes and goals.
We are looking for practitioners with a commitment to building on individuals’ strengths, aspirations and goals, which is at the heart of the Reviewing Team approach. This team will need to maximise the independence and self-determination of individuals and minimise their reliance on support. ‘Status Quo’ reviews are generally not the aim, as we seek to raise expectations and help individuals continually progress and develop with their goals.
If you are committed to helping people to progress to live their best life and believe you have what we are looking for, we want to hear from you!
