Social Workers

We have a number of exciting career opportunities across our adult services – involving working with Hackney residents, (with the full range of long term conditions), and their carers and loved ones in a number of different contexts, including hospital and community settings with a range of differing needs.

We pride ourselves on our integrated services and many of our teams are multi-disciplinary, providing an opportunity to work with residents 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.

About the role

As a Social Worker in Hackney, you will get the opportunity to develop your career through our new and innovative Adult Services Practice Academy which has different faculties of learning and development offers for you, set up to support and guide you through your career journey in adult services.

Our academy approach will support you as a social work professional to develop your career by giving you the opportunity to gain a wide range of skills and experience, underpinned by a strong focus on learning and practice development.

In our Integrated Learning Disabilities Service (ILDS), we have 4 specialist pathways:

  • preparing for adulthood
  • intensive support
  • referral and reviews
  • ongoing support

In our hospital and community teams we offer exciting opportunities to work in rapid response, early intervention and prevention as well as long term support.

We see safeguarding adults at risk as everybody’s business and seek to always make safeguarding personal.

Hackney is currently working closely with health colleagues around a number of exciting integrated care and support initiatives in both community and hospital settings, so being part of a multi-disciplinary team is very important to us here.

Whether you are a newly qualified social worker and looking at being supported through your assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE), an experienced social worker or someone who is keen to return to social work – come and work with us and find your best self in Hackney.
