Carers Practice Advisor - Transition Team

The starting salary for this role is £29,291 per annum for working 36 hours per week.

The Transition Team is a dynamic and vibrant countywide service for young people aged between 14 and 25. Although we sit in Adult Social Care, our journey with the people we support starts much earlier at Year 9. Within Surrey County Council, the Transition Team sits in a unique and favourable position of being able to undertake frontline work across both Children’s and Adults’ Services.

Working in this role, you will be competent in leading and developing carer’s practice within the team. You will be a skilled individual who is able to support carers in complex situations through finding creative and dynamic solutions. Working with young people with disabilities, you will demonstrate sound knowledge of the Care Act (2014) and Mental Capacity Act (2005). You will work with internal and external partners to raise the profile of both adult and young carers. As well as this, you will be skilled in strength-based approaches and ensure service delivery is outcome focused and evidences strong coproduction with carers.

The Transition Team is a constantly evolving, fast paced service, where we like to keep challenging ourselves to achieve best practice and outcomes. We are a resilient team that is both welcoming and value driven. Working with us will provide you with opportunities for professional and personal growth as well as positive career advancement opportunities.

In joining the Transition Team, you will benefit from a rich tapestry of experience. We are remodelling our approaches from traditional institutional approaches as we challenge inequalities that prevent young people with disabilities and their carers from living a life free of discrimination and limitations. We work with a wide range of professionals and providers who enable us to look at an individual’s needs holistically and consider our service response from a whole family perspective.

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
