Full Job Description

Do you enjoy working in a busy environment, supporting people in the community to reach their potential and achieve as much independence as possible?

Do you have a good background of working in Adult Services and like the idea of working alongside CQC registered providers and NHS staff? If so, being an Assessment and Review Co-ordinator within RMBC Reablement & Intermediate Care team could be just the job for you…

Both the Reablement Service ( community based ) and Intermediate Care ( bed-based ) support Rotherham residents to meet their own goals and realise their independent potential. The purpose of each service is to help people who have experienced deterioration in their health, and/or have increased support needs, to relearn skills or develop confidence in managing their daily needs so that they are able to remain in their own home wherever possible and safe.

Within each service area we have Reablement Workers who deliver direct care and support to people and promote a range of supportive options including Assistive Technology and close working with other agencies in managing overall need. Our focus is to support people and their carers to build on their strengths, assets and abilities to maximise their independence and wherever possible self-manage.

The team receives their work from each of the above services, and works closely with health professionals, most commonly Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, in supporting our customers to increase their strengths and abilities. Through weekly multi-disciplinary meetings, we support each other in taking a positive approach to risk and identifying holistic solutions to identified needs. This integrated working promotes more positive engagement with our customers and their representatives, enabling them to directly feel the benefits of a 'one team' approach.

Assessment and Review Co-ordinators will need to have a good working knowledge of Adult Social Care and the legislative framework that informs our work: for example, the Care Act and Mental Capacity Act. Experience in completing assessments within this legislation, as well as competence at managing a case load and any associated risks is essential. Everyone responds to Adult Safeguarding concerns if they arise, and the Assessment and Review Co-ordinator will need to fully understand the principles of 'making safeguarding personal' in any such activity.

We are a small but dedicated team who actively promote learning and development, and value the regularity of supervision and team meetings. We adopt a shared approach to problem-solving, valuing the variety of skills and experience that each team member brings to the service. We actively promote 'Rotherham Values' - Honest, Accountable, Respectful, Ambitious and Proud.

Until 31st March 2026 employees paid at Band D and above are subject to a temporary pay reduction of 1.15% spread out by means of a monthly deduction from each pay period over the full financial year. In recognition of implementing this temporary measure, those who experience a pay reduction will be awarded three additional days leave (pro rata for part-time).
