About our Team

We are committed to providing adult care and integration services that put the person at the centre of our work. We are passionate about following the ‘Home First’ pathway and work closely with our hospital colleagues to achieve this.

We cover a range of areas such as intermediate care and Athorpe (non-acute bed bases) as well as community reviews and supporting with longer term reviews.  We work collaboratively with health partners in the Community Hub.  

There are some new and exciting opportunities for workers joining the Integrated Discharge Team to support and cover several areas including:   

Covering A&E and AMU to support prevention of hospital admissions – leading to safe supportive discharges through our joint working hospital avoidance.     

Working collaborative with colleagues within RDaSH Mental Health – supporting patients under the Mental Health Act with an organic mental health diagnosis to promote safe and timely discharge from the Woodlands

Working closely with the neuro and stroke pathway.

Successful candidates will join supportive and established team which is comprised of nursing and social work professionals based in a newly built and modern office using interactive technology. As part of this role, you will be expected to support others in the team, including newly qualified Social Workers and Assessment and Review Coordinators to develop their skills and experience.     

About You   

We are looking to recruit exceptional Social Workers with the right values, skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to further enhancing and embedding strengths-based practice; focusing on people and the outcomes they wish to achieve where our ethos is ‘home first’.     

Rotherham has a good track record of achieving positive outcomes for people through being innovative and progressive as evidenced by our award-winning teams and individuals. This is further strengthened by our strong working relationships with a wide range of partners including the NHS, police, the community, voluntary sector and the independent care sector.    

If you are a compassionate, innovative, and resilient social worker with the drive to deliver ever improving performance outcomes for the people of Rotherham, then this is the role for you. In return we can offer considerable professional growth and development within an environment that is both supportive and stretching, along with a generous benefits package which is outlined in the document attached.

If you have been away from social work for a while but are considering returning to practice, do get in touch and let’s work together to see if we can help you take that worthwhile step back in to a rewarding social work role.
