Senior Practitioner - Role Profile

Senior Practitioner – Adult Safeguarding Operations
Contract: Permanent
Hours: Full time or part time job share considered
Salary scale: £38,890 - £43,857

In Plymouth, we have integrated our adult social care and community health services, to provide a better, more seamless service for our residents. However, there are some statutory functions under the Care Act 2014 that have not been delegated, and Plymouth City Council has an established team of Social Workers and Community Care Workers who are responsible for delivering these essential functions, which include the statutory duty to safeguarding adults from abuse or neglect.

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and address both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect, while at the same time making sure that the adult’s wellbeing is promoted, including having regard to their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs in deciding on any action.

The Retained Client Function Service has a vacancy for a Senior Practitioner to contribute to delivering the statutory safeguarding duty as defined in the Care Act 2014 for the people of Plymouth.

We would welcome applications from experienced, qualified and registered Social Workers or other registered professionals. You will deputise in the absence of the Team Manager, and assist them in the professional management and leadership of the team whilst ensuring an effective, responsive service, in accordance with current legislation and guidance, is provided to everyone accessing the service. This will include providing legally literate and professional specialist advice, guidance and practice supervision to a range of professional and nonprofessional staff. In addition, there is a requirement to hold complex, high priority cases, and chair multi-agency meetings. You will have exceptional interpersonal skills and be able to evidence practice within a safeguarding framework.

We will provide you with access to regular and focused supervision, and continuing professional development to support you in your role. You will enjoy being part of a committed, inclusive team, and staff benefits including a generous holiday entitlement, local government pension with employer contribution, and a discounted shopping scheme.

Professionally registered, you will have a minimum of three year’s post qualifying experience, with a demonstrable CPD portfolio to support your experience. Holding a BIA award is desirable or a willingness to undertake this training. The Disclosure & Barring Service Check requirement for this post is Enhanced Check + DBS Adults Barred List & Children’s Barred List.

Closing date: Sunday 13 December 2020
