Social Worker - Transitions
My client needs an experienced social worker who can complete assessments, put in support packages and perform reviews on existing ones. As you will be working with young people as they move from Children's to Adults services we need someone who can build a relationship with the young person and their families during what can be an anxious time.
Benefits of a Transitions Social Worker:
- Potential for long term contract
- Supportive team and management
- Interesting case load
As a Transitions Social Worker your duties will include:
- To hold a case load of exclusively transition cases.
- To work under the direction of the Transition workstream Senior Social Worker, the Team Manager, the Service Manager and the Head of Disabilities.
- To progress cases of service users from Children Services to Adult Services.
- To work jointly with Special Education Needs Co-ordinators re. funding matters in cases where joint funding is required.
