Are you passionate about making a positive and lasting difference to people of Hull?
The transformation programme we have embarked upon and making a success of our new operating model is key to ensuring the work we do is sustainable and effective in the future. There has been significant investment in additional posts to support the transformation and Hull City Council are looking for exceptional individuals like you to join the Adult Social Care team.
We are seeking people who have the energy, motivation and innovation to pursue a career within adult social care. This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference by delivering key aims of early help and prevention to work with people who may require support in achieving personal aspirations and goals relating to maximising their independence. The role is implicit in the development and delivery of imaginative and creative solutions which underpin the requirements of the Care Act 2014 and, essentially support Hull’s strategic vision of “a life not a service”.
We are looking to offer exciting opportunities for people who can demonstrate their ability to focus on people’s strengths and choices to live their lives to the full by working in partnership with people their families and their communities.
The successful candidate will have the following training, experience and knowledge:
- Diploma/BSC in Occupational Therapy qualification
- Be registered with the HCPC and able to evidence this
- Experience of community care assessment (this experience could have been acquired on placement as a student O T), therapeutic intervention and practical knowledge of the treatment of a range of disabilities.
The role requires you to contribute to specialist or comprehensive assessments for people with disabilities and their carers to recommend a range of help available.
The posts are based within the Locality Teams which work in partnership with all individuals requiring longer term adult social care support. Referrals to the team will come directly from See & Solve Community, for ongoing support following Active Recovery and after a hospital discharge package has been put in place. The teams work jointly, between Social Work, Occupational Therapy as well as with Sensory and Telecare colleagues, to identify actions and goals the individual wants to achieve and the best way to achieve these and are within statutory frameworks including the MCA 2005 and Care Act 2014. The teams also ensure individuals receive timely and proportionate reviews ensuring that an individual’s goals and actions are reflecting changes in their life and supporting them to be independent.
For an informal discussion about the post please contact:
Bridget King, Principal Occupational Therapist on (01482) 612660 or Tracey Mckee, Operational Manager (01482) 822819.
Please ensure that you complete and submit your application by midnight on the closing date.
