Role Purpose

This post offers an opportunity to work in an integrated Learning Disability Service (LDS). The service is based in Earlston and is within commuting distance from Edinburgh and the Lothians. It covers the whole of the Scottish Borders area.
The post involves day to day multi disciplinary working in a well established team of Social Care and Health Professionals. The team has been integrated since 2005. Practitioners from all professions are highly committed to providing the best possible outcomes for adults who have a learning disability and their informal and formal carers. The service has a track record of innovation and new ideas are actively promoted. The post will enable the successful applicant to develop and consolidate their skills in assessment and care management and social work practice whilst gaining a comprehensive knowledge of working with people with a learning disability and their carers.
The service is very active in supporting Continuing Professional Development and produces two Team development days per year which are coordinated and led by a multi-disciplinary staff CPD group. Peer supervision is supported as well as there being a firm commitment to regular management supervision. The service also provides excellent support and learning opportunities for newly qualified social workers who need to complete their PRTL requirements.
If you are successful in your application for this post you will have the experience working in a stimulating, supportive and friendly team of health and social work professionals with shared values and a person-centred focus. You will learn from people from other disciplines with specialist knowledge and develop your skills and knowledge across a wide variety of both challenging and rewarding situations.
