Nottingham City Council Adult Social Care are looking to recruit a number of Community Care Officers to work within the Integrated Enablement and Discharge Team until March 2022.
The starting salary is £25,991 (Level 1), rising to £27,741 (Level 2) on first year anniversary, subject to satisfactory completion of a probation period (pro rata for part time).
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.
Community Care Officers are required to complete Care Act assessments; face to face or telephone assessments, depending on the level of risk and the needs of the citizen being assessed, with consideration of mental capacity throughout.  They work with supportive colleagues, citizens, carers, statutory and community partners to provide appropriate support that will enable independence, choice and control, promoting early intervention and local community led support services to enhance well-being and respond to local community needs.
The CCO role is interesting and varied, and deals with risk management on a daily basis. An awareness of safeguarding and how to identify people at risk, flexibility, resilience and ability to prioritise and adapt to changing situations is essential. In return the successful candidate will be supported by an experienced senior team comprised of Senior Community Care Officers, Senior Practitioners and Team Managers, who will support CCOs to develop their Social Care career.
The Integrated Enablement Team has two main functions:
The Integrated Discharge part of the team is hosted within Nottingham University Hospital and is a multiagency team facilitating discharge for citizens following an acute hospital stay. Colleagues work as part of a multiagency system to identify the discharge Pathway and facilitate short term services to maximise independence/rehabilitation and reablement.
The Out of Hospital part of the team is a community based team which supports citizens with assessment, review and planning for longer term support services following discharge from an acute hospital stay. Colleagues are part of a multiagency service working with other allied professionals and clinicians to identify long term support needs for citizens and commissioning services to provide this support.
