We are looking for a Social Worker
Based either at Fair Havens or The J’s Hospice.
Working in our in-patient unit and the community.
Full time (37.5 Hours per week)
Salary from £28,000 to £32,000 FTE

Join our multidisciplinary Family Support team and you will be providing social support to patients and families in our Fair Havens inpatient unit and also out in the community, working with the J’s Hospice. In this varied role you will look after a caseload covering adults from 16 years upwards providing support to the patients and families that use our services.
You will need to be HCPC registered and have experience in a social care/healthcare environment, excellent communication skills, a passion for palliative care, a can do attitude and a desire to make a real difference to the lives of patients and their families.
Experience of working with children is desirable, as you will be expected to cover and support the work of our other Social Worker during holidays and absence, but more important is a willingness to work flexibly and be part of the wider Family Support team.
This role will enable you to expand your knowledge and skills. In return for your expertise and passion, you’ll receive 5 weeks annual leave, extensive training and we will also contribute to the NHS Pension scheme for continuing members. Most of all, by joining our team, you’ll be ‘Making every day count’ for the patients, and families we care for.
A full UK driving license and your own vehicle is essential as you will be expected to work across Essex, meeting the needs of our patients, and families we care for.
