INTERNAL DCC EMPLOYEES ONLY
We are seeking an existing or aspiring Team Manager to manage the Specialist Placement Team - a small adult social care team with a big remit.
The Specialist Placement Team covers work outside of the Devon County Council boundary. We undertake reviews for people placed out of county, hospital discharges from mental health hospitals out of county and Preparing for Adulthood work with young people in residential schools and colleges outside of Devon.
The role is varied and interesting. You will need a legal literacy of the Care Act application and a willingness to learn about the Mental Health Act. You will be keen to work with DCC partners across the county as well as health partners, schools and colleges, care providers across the UK and individuals and their families who aren't usually in Devon.
You will manage a team of social care assessors and social workers, manage the team waiting lists and incoming work, undertake a lot of partnership working and also provide a practice leadership role for the team and others.
The team is mostly home working and undertakes a lot of travel across the UK, so managing a dispersed team and their wellbeing is important.
You will be supported by a team of managers within the Disability services, so you will not be working alone.
The post is advertised as full time, but we will consider part time applicants.
Interviews are due to be held on 9th December 2022.
