Consultant Social Workers

We are recruiting to a diverse range of services that work with service users and carers with different needs to support them in hospital, in the community, and in residential settings.

We pride ourselves on our integrated services and many of our teams are multi-disciplinary, providing an opportunity to work with service users and their families in a joined-up way.

In Hackney, we want to support the people who use our services and their carers to lead independent and healthy lives, and we want to take a strengths-based approach to practice, focusing on how we can work with our residents to enable and empower them to live the life they want to lead.

We have an exciting programme of transformation ahead in adult services and you will have the opportunity to work with us, and the people who use our services, to collaborate and shape the services of the future.

We’re looking for people who want to make a difference for the residents they work alongside, the community they serve but also for themselves and their careers.

As part of this we are recruiting to a number of consultant social worker posts in Hackney, to act as advanced practitioners, based in teams to offer expert social work advice, co-working and mentoring around complex casework, so that caseloads are shared in a unit type approach.
