An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated and enthusiastic individual who wishes to apply for this Social Work role, working within the Integrated Team, to provide care and support to adults across Caithness.

• Working within relevant legislation including the Adult Support and Protection, Adults with Incapacity and

            Mental Health Acts.

• Assessment and report writing.

• Arranging, with the client’s consent, care packages to meet assessed need.

• Working as part of a multi-disciplinary service which supports adults living within a large remote and rural

geographical area with the potential challenges this can present.

A driving licence is essential, and applicants should have access to their own vehicle for work purposes.

Applicants should be registered with the Scottish Social Services council on the ‘Social worker’ part of the register and hold a qualification that is recognised by the SSSC as being equivalent to the Diploma in social work (DipSW).
