In Brighton & Hove’s Adult Social Care Teams we passionately believe that putting relationship-based practice at the centre of everything we do enables us to provide consistent and quality support to citizens within the city so that they can lead independent and fulfilled lives. Working closely with our partner agencies, we continue to be at the forefront of making a positive difference in challenging times. But we can’t realise our ambition to become a centre of excellence and best practice without dedicated and motivated social workers. Does this sound like you?
If so, we have two opportunities for experienced social workers to join us and we look forward to hearing from you.
Closing date: 28th July 2021
