Social Worker

Adult Services in West Berkshire has an opportunity for a full time Social Worker who is registered with Social Work England to join our friendly and supportive Central Locality  team. We are a small Local Authority with a mixture of urban and rural communities which offers great variety and positive challenges. West Berkshire Council is embracing a new way of working with a strong focus on localities and a strengths based approach to the people that we work with. 

The Social Worker will work collaboratively with Occupational Therapists and Social Care Practitioners in a small team to undertake assessments and reviews of adults who need care and support in the community. The work is very varied and will involve working with adults with a wide range of needs and disabilities.  You will need a working knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act and Safeguarding processes. 

You will hold a full caseload and contribute to team performance, but in return you will be offered regular professional supervision and there are opportunities to develop your own skills as a supervisor. 

West Berkshire Council offer excellent employment benefits such as flexible working, access to a wide range of relevant training, local government pension scheme, family friendly policies, a range of local discounts and much more. You will also be entitled to a generous annual leave entitlement of 28 days per annum rising to a maximum of 33 days.
