About the Role

Most social work intervention takes place during the working day, but residents may need to access support at other times. The out of hours  team provides a response to emergencies that arise outside of regular office hours to protect vulnerable children and adults. The service provides crisis support and fulfils statutory obligations and responsibilities of children’s and adult’s services. The team operates from 5:00 pm until 9.00 am on weekdays and all day on weekends and public holidays. It is a small team of social workers based at home who are all qualified AMHPs who cover a rolling rota to ensure that the service is available at all times.

You will be expected to work evenings, weekends and bank holidays on a rota basis across 7 days including overnight and high demand times. You will bring with you a proven track record of success, be able to effectively communicate in a multi-agency environment, be confident in assessing and have the ability to risk manage complex situations. The work is therefore varied, challenging and rewarding.
