Newly qualified Social worker

Essex County Council are recruiting for an Adult Social worker

Applications are welcome from NQSW's.

The starting salary for a NQSW is £29,236 per annum and this will rise to £32,787 per annum on successful completion of the ASYE programme.

With us, you can achieve more - for yourself as well as the vulnerable adults you work to support.

We're always looking for new ways to deliver even better services, Social Workers play an integral role in our preventative approach to Social Care.

We encourage our multi-disciplinary teams to share their ideas and experience.

We work together to get things done.

Bring your positive, proactive attitude, and we'll empower you to make the most of your experience within Essex County Council (ECC) Adult Social Care services.

About the Role

The West Essex area covers Harlow and Epping.

West Essex is unique as it borders London boroughs, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and has close links to NHS partners in the area.

This offers the opportunity for those joining us in West Essex to be involved in initiatives that run across authorities and organisations.

With close proximity to bordering counties and North East London the area is ideal for those that want to commute into Essex.

Working to support adults and their families who have complex social needs and are more vulnerable as a result of disability, exclusion, or diminished capacity, you'll maximise their potential to live independently.

We currently have several opportunities for Social Workers, within our West Essex area within Integrated Neighbourhood teams, Discharge to Assess, Learning Disabilities & Autism and several other teams.

About Us

At Essex County Council Adult Services our mission is clear.

We want to make the best and most sustainable use of all resources available to the adult, their families, and carers.

To ensure they have access to information and tools to enable them to live healthily and independently for as long as possible, and to exercise choice and control over their lives.

And to ensure the safety, dignity, and quality of life for all the adults we work with.

To make sure we achieve our goals, we've transformed our service to be far more proactive.

Moving from focusing on long-term care and support, our new model is centred on four key principles - prevention, early intervention, enablement, and safeguarding.

We're very proud of our service and the work we're doing with all our partners to build community capacity and resilience.

You'll also bring:

  • Evidence of continuing professional development and capability of practice in accordance with current professional standards.

  • An in-depth understanding of the financial implications of commissioned care packages.

  • The ability to make clear decisions, to highlight and limit potential risks associated with intervention.

This role involves travelling around Essex and beyond.

A driving licence and car - or the ability to meet the mobility requirements of the role through other means - is essential
