Fixed Term
Job Type

An exciting opportunity has arisen within Adults Services for a full time, fixed term qualified social worker.

The role will aim to enhance the work that is being undertaken in the IAA Team and focus upon prevention, wellbeing and helping the citizens of Blaenau Gwent find their own solutions. The IAA Team consists of a variety of disciplines including support workers (domestic violence and mental health), assistive technology installers, community connectors and therapists. The need for a full time social worker in the team has become more and more evident and will greatly support the team during the next phase of developmental change.  

The successful post holder will have excellent knowledge of the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 and experience of strengths-based assessments and creative care-planning. The post holder will also be expected to support the non-qualified workforce and so knowledge of more complex elements of social work (such as mental capacity assessment and Continuing Healthcare) is essential. The role is based in the Prevention Hub in Tredegar but the post holder will be expected to work across a number of different settings such as hospitals and GP practices as required.

For more information, please contact Kelly Love (IAA Team Manager) – 01495 354645.

The position carries an Approved Casual Car User Allowance therefore access to a vehicle for work purposes is a requirement.

Thorough pre-employment screening is undertaken during the recruitment process. The postholder will be required to complete an application for a Disclosure of Criminal Records.

Closing Date:          Thursday 19th September – 12:00am, midnight
