Adult Services, North Suffolk Area, Learning Disabilities and Autism Services.
You will be applying for a role within a transformative and exciting service area, one that is working hard to improve lives for people with a learning disability or autism in Suffolk.
The social care service in Suffolk has undergone a significant redesign to put the development of locality-based and partnership working and integration with health, at the forefront of our transformation.
We have increased the capacity in the Learning Disabilities and Autism teams in order to bring operational delivery and service development together.
We are working to our Supporting Lives Connecting Communities strategy and implementing a new practice model: Signs of Safety and Wellbeing, promoting independence and self-support, short term enablement, personalisation and digital care.
Working together is at the heart of what we do and we have a strong core of professional advice / practice development within our service.
You will lead a strong and well-established team, and play a key role in creating best practice for Suffolk, developing new pathways and ways of working that promote mental health and wellbeing.
Working alongside a Senior Practitioner, you will successfully manage demand and contribute to the effective leadership of Adult and Community Services, supporting the Senior Management Team in delivering a high-performance culture and excellent quality services.
You will be a 'systems thinker', committed to ensuring effective integration between health and social care, through collaboration with partners across the system; including NSFT (Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust), CYP (Children and Young People Service), NHS and NHS CCG (Clinical Commissioning Groups).
You will be passionate about finding new and innovative ways of working to deliver better outcomes for the people of Suffolk, with a focus on ensuring preventative and long-term sustainable solutions, that enable people to live long and fulfilling lives by maximising their independence.
You will need:
- to be passionate and motivated with significant frontline experience
- a positive and proactive attitude to challenging situations and problem solving
- a collaborative and engaging approach with your team, service and partnership work
- HCPC registration, along with evidence of continued professional development.
You will be required to travel frequently in rural areas, so you must hold a full driving licence and have access to personal transport.
We welcome applications from qualified Social Workers or Occupational Therapists ready to take their first step into operational management.
