We currently have several opportunities for Social Workers, within our West Essex area within Early Interventions, Learning Disabilities & Autism, Ongoing Support and several other teams.

Working to support adults and their families who have complex social needs and are more vulnerable as a result of disability, exclusion, or diminished capacity, you’ll maximise their potential to live independently.

With case work focusing on the most complex and challenging adult cases, you’ll ensure that adults and their families are safeguarded. You’ll share ideas and best practice, providing specialist advice as part of a multi-disciplinary team sharing your knowledge as a Social Worker.

Social workers manage a caseload, including assessment of risk and purposeful intervention through direct work, commissioned services and review.

The West Essex area covers Harlow and Epping. West Essex is unique as it borders London boroughs, Hertfordshire , Cambridgeshire and has close links to NHS partners in the area. This offers the opportunity for those joining us in West Essex to be involved in initiatives that run across authorities and organisations. With close proximity to bordering counties and North East London the area is ideal for those that want to commute into Essex.
