Practice Consultant Social Worker 49512 SSAE

Countywide

£35,697 - £39,780 per annum

37 hours per week

Fixed-term contract until 31 March 2021

A unique and innovative opportunity has arisen for a full-time Practice Consultant Social Worker as part of the Council's safeguarding strategy to work with adults and young people who are at risk of radicalisation under the Prevent agenda, and as part of the social work provision to support and safeguard vulnerable people from County Lines or Modern Slavery issues.

This new post is initially offered as a fixed-term contract until 31 March 2021 and is subject to evaluation.
 You will be responsible for carrying out risk assessments of clients allocated via the local Channel Panel and to devise support plans to promote positive decision-making and reduce the likelihood of exploitation and radicalisation. You will be required to liaise with other agencies in the statutory and voluntary sector and co-ordinate an appropriate response. You will also be involved in helping to support vulnerable individuals who are at risk of being exploited and involved in County Lines or those who are the victims of modern slavery.


 You will work within an award-winning team of social care professionals, including volunteers, who provide specialist services across the county. You will be required to work occasional evenings and weekends, and will be based in the centre of Norwich. Duties include visiting people and providing support in community settings as well as some on-call shifts out of hours on a rota with other team members. Enhanced DBS clearance is required for this post. You will need to be able to use our social care systems (LAS and LCS). You will need to have experience of working with adults and young people who are at risk of exploitation, including people who have mental health problems or autism, and minority ethnic groups, and in undertaking risk assessments, safeguarding responses and preparing complex case reports. You must have an understanding of the Prevent agenda and how this fits into the government's CONTEST strategy. You must also have an awareness of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the local authority's duties as First Responders.

 You will be involved in exploring and developing new services, building networks and liaising with other agencies. You will be well-organised with a positive outlook, able to prioritise effectively and able to work calmly under pressure and to tight timescales. Good IT, communication and networking skills are essential.
 Are you motivated and have a passion for safeguarding vulnerable people and support them towards achieving independence and safeguarding them from harm or abuse? Do you wish to develop your specialist knowledge in an innovative and pioneering post and to have the opportunity to devise fresh ways of using your social work skills to work in partnership with other agencies? If so, you are the type of practitioner we are looking for.
