Adults Social Care Development Coordinator

About the role

This full time (36 hours p.w.) post offers an exciting opportunity to be a Social Care Development Coordinator (SCDC) within the Adult Social Care Team based at East Surrey Hospital in Redhill.

The postholder will be involved in providing support to frontline practitioners, developing local networks and services and driving up standards of care and relationships with local providers.

The postholder will provide essential support to frontline practitioners by taking the lead responsibility for identifying, developing and organising services to support people being discharged from hospital.

The focus will be on developing and embedding new business processes to ensure efficient and effective support arrangements are put in place for people in the community as well as residential and nursing care. You will become increasingly and routinely involved in working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders to identify and develop networks and new community resources within East Surrey. Successful applicants will therefore be able to demonstrate strong partnership working skills and values and a commitment to local community development.

You will have a critical role in ensuring information regarding non-funded services is available for practitioners before funded services are arranged. You will offer guidance and expertise to colleagues within the team in relation to both costed and non-costed support available within the locality and you will be responsible for ensuring that local information is made available via Surrey Information Point. Having a developed understanding about the use of social capital will, therefore, be essential to the success of their teams becoming truly integrated into their local communities.

When identifying potential resources you will assist in maximising the use of our existing block and contract arrangements and be well informed about the current availability of funded and non-funded provider services. Use of E-Brokerage to source care will be an essential tool to use in sourcing care and support.

You will have key relationships with colleagues in Procurement, Quality Assurance, Finance and Commissioning to ensure information regarding availability and quality of service provision is well known and issues acted upon quickly. Working with Finance to ensure that the provider is properly registered on Council systems for payment is part of your role.

The postholder will be the key link with the area finance team to ensure that individual expenditure and savings are communicated and realised in a timely way. Close working relationships with all locality staff is therefore essential, including the Senior Administration Advisor, in developing clear processes for all staff to follow.

Line Management, supervision and support will be provided by an Assistant Team Manager and you will be given appropriate training to complete this role.
