Reablement Officers X2

The West Berkshire Council Reablement Service has an opportunity into the positions of Reablement Officers working as part of the team of officers who manage the first visits, risk assessment and support planning for service users covering the West Berks area.

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for someone looking to enhance their existing skills.  To fulfil this role you must have a good understanding of the service delivery of Reablement support in the Community and a desire to work with others to maintain the existing standards set within the Reablement Service.   Experience in risk assessing and care planning would be an advantage.  An NVQ2 is an essential requirement, and Level 3 and/or equivalent would also be advantageous.  Experience of working with Outlook and the Microsoft Office suite of programmes is essential and any experience of working with Cold Harbour would be an advantage, although full training would be given. 

Reablement Officers are responsible for carrying out all of the first visits to Service Users entering the service, completing risk assessments and writing the initial support plans as this is the vital first step in the Reablement process.   Additionally, Reablement Officers work closely with the Reablement Coordinators and the Occupational Therapists to ensure all information is shared and actioned.  They are also responsible for the handover process to the Reablement Assistants to ensure that our support continues in a professional manner.  The Reablement Officers also chair the weekly Reablement Assistant/Reablement Officer meetings which is a great opportunity to share information and good practise; providing opportunities reflect on our work with Service Users.

The shift pattern worked is as the Universal Rota, working 7 days out of 14 (every other weekend) with 2 shifts; 7.00am to 17.30pm and 11.30am to 10.00pm with each Reablement Officer working 2 weeks of the earlier shift followed by 2 weeks of later shifts.

West Berkshire Council offer excellent employment benefits such as flexible working, access to a wide range of relevant training, local government pension scheme, family friendly policies, a range of local discounts and much more. You will also be entitled to a generous annual leave entitlement of 27 days pro rata rising to a maximum of 32 days.

This role has been identified as public facing in accordance with Part 7 of the Immigration Act 2017; the requirement to fulfil all spoken aspects of the role with confidence in English applies.
