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.
   
TEAM INFORMATION
:
Mental Health Social Care Teams are specialist teams that commission and review a wide variety of packages of care for citizens who are in contact with secondary mental health services, with the aim of promoting independence and wellbeing. The Teams are also the base for all referrals for urgent Mental Health Act assessments.
  
Occupational Therapy is a specialist branch of Social Care that assesses and reviews citizens who may have impairments to their mobility or motor skills. These may be long or short term, and require an assessment and care plan to be put in place, often with equipment prescribed. OTs develop complex person centred packages of support; this may include rehabilitation / reablement, provision of equipment and structural adaptations.
   
JOB PURPOSE

Health and Social Care Coordinators (HSCCs) provide a comprehensive and efficient support service to workers in the team through administrative, recording and analytical processes. HSCCs are responsible for acting as the first point of contact for referrals and queries from citizens and professionals, as well as coordinating rotas and cover to ensure citizen and staff safety. They also monitor and analyse relevant performance and caseload data for the team, to ensure continued high standards of service delivery.
  
ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS: 
  • Knowledge of, or ability to gain an understanding of, working in a health and social care environment and working in multidisciplinary team settings;
  • Highly developed organisational, administrative and negotiating skills, including a thorough understanding of customer care issues;
