DFG Case Worker

We don't just help people keep their independence. We also give them peace of mind.

We want all of our residents to be able to live their lives to the full.

Our Disabled Facilities Grant Case Officers have a role to play in that. They help people with disabilities, older people and those undergoing rehabilitation to live as independently as possible and go about their daily lives.

We're proud of our community. The care we give. The services we provide. The spaces we create. But we're always looking to do more. Which is why we give our people the time, support and resources they need not only to do their job well, but also to help define the way we do things more broadly. You'll have a manageable caseload. You'll also have a voice. If you think something needs to change, we want to know about it. This is an opportunity to take ownership. And to change lives for the better.

There'll always be room for your ideas here. This is about taking ownership. And having the opportunity to learn, develop and progress. Together, we make big things happen, but we're also focused on the smaller things that make all the difference. And that's as true for our employees as it is for our residents.

We have strong teams and excellent manager relationships. Expert advice is there whenever you need it. Put simply, a career with us means having everything you need to build on your skills. To build better relationships. To build even better communities. This is your chance to make a lasting impact.

Because we're Bracknell Forest
