Job description

Our client Southwark Council is looking for a Qualified Social Worker to join their Transfer of care team.

The social work position is in the Transfer of Care Team (TOC) South - Hospital discharge - Adult Social Care (Older Adults and Physical disabilities).

TOC SW role:

To provide a comprehensive, effective, integrated, systemically-informed social work service, within Southwark's practice framework, managing complex cases. To deliver excellent social work practice, assessing complex need, planning and working purposefully with families, support networks and other professionals to manage risk, safeguard children and promote positive outcomes. To provide a social work service which is both relationship based and which responds in a timely manner within statutory guidelines. To work collaboratively with the team, supporting the development of best practice and confident practitioners through coaching and mentoring of students, newly qualified social workers and less experienced practitioners. This post is located at Jenni Lee House, walking distance from the Kings College hospital site at Denmark Hill (London, SE5 9RS). This role is predominantly place-based in the hospital discharge team and visiting patients on the ward for complex discharge assessments and dedicated discharge planning, including mental capacity assessments and discharge planning meetings with medical colleagues, therapists and/or social care professionals and families.

**NOTE: As mental capacity assessments and complex discharge assessments are carried out in person and with discharge planning through winter pressures demanding a flexible approach to visiting patients on the ward, this role cannot be fulfilled remotely! This post requires 3-4 days per week office presence near the hospital, generally 1 day/week working from home for write-ups is unproblematic for this post.
