Full Time

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Eden Adults Social Work Interventions Team for a permanent full time social worker. The Eden Adults Social Work team is a settled group of dynamic, experienced, and focussed social work practitioners. You will work closely with partner agencies locally and support colleagues and individuals in a strengths based, person centred approach to assess care needs and undertake support planning in a variety of settings.

The Adult Social Care Social Work Service works with people aged 18+ with cognitive or physical health impairments. This service works collaboratively with a range of stakeholders from across the health and social care system and third sector and voluntary groups in Cumbria in ways that recognise strengths, promotes independence and prevents, reduces or delays the need for formal long term care and support provision. Assessments and reviews will be undertaken in a strengths-based way that maximises the use of social capital and community based assets.

The Service works across health, social care and third sector organisations with a primary focus upon ensuring that all support plans:-

  • include robust contingency plans that promote personal resilience to manage temporary changes in need/circumstance;
  • demonstrate how people will meet their needs from a range of sources, including friends, family, third sector, the community, equipment or assistive technology. Personal budgets will only be allocated for the provision of formal support for identified unmet needs. Please note that whilst flexible working is possible, there is an expectation that the post holder will spend a proportion of the week in the Eden office.

Please note, there may be an opportunity to consider applicants with preference of working part time hours.

What can we offer you!

  • Excellent training and development offers
  • Flexible working opportunities
  • Opportunity to join the Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Boost your pension with Shared Cost Additional Voluntary Contributions (facilitated by AVC Wise)
  • Various perks and discounts schemes, including money off your phone contract and local gyms
  • Competitive rates of pay
