Job description:

Waltham forest Council are currently recruiting for a Practice manager for the Adults Review Team

The Review Team is looking for warm, caring individuals to provide person centred support to adults. We are looking for practitioners who believe it is important to ensure people have choice and control over their own support needs. We want people who are committed, like us, to focus on the person, their strengths and networks rather than routinely assessing people for services and eligibility. Waltham Forest believes that by exploring people's goals and aspirations, and the strengths they have themselves or around them, we can help people to stay independent for longer and connected to their communities.
Waltham Forest is committed to supporting and investing in our workforce. We are a Families Directorate and our ambition is that everyone in Waltham Forest enjoys a quality life. We have an outstanding leadership structure in place and dedicated staff who keeps its vulnerable and at risk populations at the heart of everything we do.

Due to the current circumstances, we have been implementing temporary measures during the crisis that may not represent the team and its work post COVID. For now, the staff working on reviews will be completing virtual planned annual reviews and only doing face to face reassessments where essential and a risk assessment has been completed.

In all circumstances the guiding principles for the service will be:

*Planned annual reviews will continue to be carried out by age of review
*The review team are responsible for carrying out the review and the review work that flows from it
*Where issues are identified from the review that will require significant ongoing social work response, including safeguarding investigation, Mental Capacity Assessment - the work will be transferred to the Adult Care Management team. Brief work that can be completed promptly by review team will be undertaken by the allocated worker before closure. Liaison and agreement between the Team managers will be necessary in some circumstances. These situations will be monitored to inform future planning in the teams.
