Our client is looking for two Social Workers to join their Hospital Discharge team at Charing Cross Hospital.

At this level the role holder will be more autonomous. They will demonstrate expert and effective practice in complex situations, assessing and managing higher levels of risk, striking a balance between support and control, liaising with a wide range of professionals, including more senior levels.

The role holder will assist individuals, carers and families to develop support plans to meet the outcomes identified, using a strength and asset-based approach and family, friends and community options where appropriate and eligible needs are identified.

They will actively encourage involvement and ownership of the support plan but to take a leadership role where appropriate, and will give clear explanation of the use of Personal Budgets and Direct Payments so that informed decisions can be made.

The role holder will actively promote wellbeing and independence, to enable individuals and carers to retain or regain their skills and confidence and prevent or delay deterioration. They will engage effectively with families to facilitate contingency planning to anticipate complexity and changing circumstances.
