These are exciting time on the Isle of Wight within Adult Social Care with the whole service having supported a redesign that enhances strength-based practice, working with the community and our third sector partners. We are a hard-working team, and it doesn’t go unnoticed. We have recently been nominated as finalists in the Local Government Chronicles 2023 in the digital impact category for our wellbeing app.
This is your opportunity to join us as a Service Manager looking after our Initial Adult Social Care Contact (IASCC) Team, Integrated Localities Teams and the Hospital Social Work Team. Each team boasts a passionate, enthusiastic Team Manager, that care deeply about the needs of those we serve and the colleagues they support. Now we need you to guide and progress these teams to continue their invaluable work in our community.
As a Service Manager at Team IWC you’ll be well supported, with access to coaching, leadership support and a strong team working above, below, and alongside you. We offer excellent management development, working in partnership with NHS trust colleagues, ensuring you’ll get the most from your career.
To succeed you’ll need to be dedicated to integrated working, social care front door duty services and in reach Hospital Social Work services. This should be coupled with a firm grasp of the importance and value of statutory duties within a Local Authority environment, and you’ll need a substantial knowledge of the work with cross agencies professionals and strong knowledge of CHC duties and responsibilities.
Our focus on integration will enable you to gain wider knowledge and understanding of Health and Social Care and how these provisions can successfully collaborate. Your goal will be to continue our integration journey with local health partners, building on the great work already achieved in establishing integrated locality teams and an integrated complex discharge team within our local hospital setting.
Additionally, the last 4 years have seen our whole service focusing on enabling individuals to live independent lives, with our innovative ‘Care Closer to Home’ strategy, that has recently been refreshed.
This is a challenging but rewarding role where no 2 days are the same. If you can apply excellent leadership skills to motivate and inspire your teams to get the very best results every day, then this is the opportunity for you!
As well as being a great place to work, we also offer a competitive remuneration package including:
· Competitive rates of pay and allowances
· Annual leave entitlement of 32 days p/a (plus public holidays)
· Local Government pension scheme
· Relocation package (if eligible) of up to £8,000 plus home relocation scheme via Help to Buy
· Travel allowance (if eligible) and discounted Solent ferry travel
· Island bus network discount, cycle to work scheme and staff parking permit scheme
· Discounted island sports & leisure gym membership
· National and local discounts & benefits schemes
· Access to private health care packages
