Nottingham City Council Adult Social Care are looking for a Pathways to Health and Social Care Officer (PHSCO) to work three days per week (22.2h) on a fixed term contract to November 2023.

We’ve got an exciting opportunity available for talented individuals to join our workforce - perhaps this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? Read on to find out more…
Nottingham City Council is known for inclusivity and innovation, and we are continually working around the clock to deliver services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.
Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a Great City, but to do this we need to be a Great Council, provide Great Services and recruit and develop a Great Workforce.
We will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a very generous 25-32 days holiday package each year (exclusive of public bank holidays and dependent on length of service) and give you the option to purchase up to 28 days additional holiday tax-free!
Nottingham City Council is committed to recruiting a talented workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We are a fair and inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and with different abilities. We recruit for diversity and value difference.
We particularly want to hear from you if you are from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community, identify within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community (LGBT) and if you are Disabled - these groups of people are underrepresented in our workforce, and we’d like to reflect our local population more through our recruitment processes.
Nottingham City Council are also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of Children and Vulnerable Adults and we expect all workers to share in this commitment.
We have always been open to flexible working and the COVID-19 pandemic provided us with some new options to work in a completely different way. We welcome a conversation about flexible working at the point of interview.
The Pathways to Health and Social Care project is funded by the European Social Fund, and the objective of the project is to encourage more unemployed and economically inactive people into jobs and training within the Health and Social Care sector.
The project is due to run until November 2023, and includes partners from various sectors across the D2N2 area.

The PHSCO will work closely with colleagues to provide support around getting local people into work, as well as linking in with the Project Manager within the Jobs Hub and Lead Providers to identify vacancies and opportunities across Nottingham City that may be suitable. They will also link in with training providers (internal and external) and provide support and guidance around the application and interview process, to increase success rates for the project.

The ideal candidate should have a good knowledge of general recruitment practice and procedures, ideally within the Health and Social Care sector. The role will involve a lot of direct contact with citizens and professional partners to support both applicants and prospective employers, so high level communications skills are a must. The successful candidate will also be expected to report on project targets and outcomes on a regular basis.
  • Understanding of recruitment and training challenges and opportunities, particularly within the Health and Social Care sector
  • Experience of managing and prioritising own workload, working independently and recognising when support from a senior colleague is required
  • Highly effective communication and strong literacy skills and the ability to quickly build rapport, with good listening and public relations skills
  • Able to analyse information, be creative and flexible in the formulation of solutions to project risks and issues, and to use analytical skills to present numerical and other data
