Social Worker

We found Sam the right support. Now, he’s finding his feet.

We want to help our most vulnerable residents, with Learning Disabilities, to get their lives firmly on track. It’s why our social workers have the time to get to know everyone they work with. We’re working towards protected caseloads. And we do what we think should be done, not just what needs to be done. Put simply, we change lives for the better.

Because we’re Bracknell Forest

 

The Community Team for Learning Disabilities is a joint team, which comprises both Health and Social Care professionals. The team has a person-centred approach and individuals are encouraged to make decisions about their own lives. Sometimes, the work is challenging however there is also time for finding creative solutions and every day is different.

You will be supported to carry out the following duties, responsibilities and training:

  • To support people in Bracknell Forest by assessing their needs and attaining their desired outcomes, under the Care Act 2014.
  • To carry a caseload of adults with Learning Disabilities
  • To liaise and communicate appropriately with professionals in other departments and organisations.
  • Contribute to Adult Safeguarding and child protection
  • To work in a person-centred way

You will receive regular supervision and appraisal and be supported to identify and meet your training and personal development needs.

 

The benefits you will experience are: 

  • Regular opportunities for development with internal and external training courses.
  • An inclusive and social working environment.
  • Flexible working opportunities including a flexi-time scheme.
  • A great office location next to travel links and the regenerated town centre.
  • Internal sports and social club opportunities.
  • Discounted leisure centre and gym membership.
  • Supermarket discount.
  • An interest free loan for a rail season ticket.

 

What we’re looking for…

We are looking for an individual who is committed to person-centred values, empathetic and respectful of diversity. This person will have an in- depth knowledge of Learning Disability and the ability to communicate with a wide range of people and they will have the ability to prioritise and work together effectively with others
