Job description: West Sussex Council are currently recruiting for an Adult Social worker

WSCC Adult Services have several Social Work Community Teams based across the county, primarily in the three main hubs in Durban House (Bognor Regis), Centenary House (Worthing) and Parkside (Horsham). Each of these locations has a Café for refreshments and meals, with free parking now during the Covid period.
It's an exciting time to work in Adult Services in West Sussex, as we have been implementing Community Led Support across the county and ensuring that the strengths based approach is central to how the teams work. During the Covid period, we have aligned with health to work closely in partnership to facilitate hospital discharges and undertake Health and Social Care assessment with people in the community and residential settings.
The creative use of technology has been a key factor for teams during the Covid period, which has enabled us to continue to undertake our statutory assessment and review duties. Practitioners also participate in weekly virtual multi disciplinary meetings with health and other partner agencies.
At present, many staff work from home, but can also use the office bases for essential requirements. All staff are provided with a windows 10 laptop which has direct access capability to link in with most WIFI networks. We have worked flexibly to promote staff wellbeing which has involved more home working and we have worked hard to ensure that staff feel that they always have good support and access to a manager. West Sussex is an improving authority with a commitment to service transformation. If you like what you have read and want to be part of this team, apply now it is an exciting time to be joining us.
