Senior Social Worker (Out of Hours Service)


£39,717 - £42,777

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new team as part of our recently revised our Out of Hours Service. In taking a phased approach to implementation you will be involved right from the start and be able to influence the future developments to full implementation of a standalone model for the service.

As the SSW you will be responsible for the overall safe running of the OOH service, triaging referrals, assessing need and deploying social work staff as appropriate.

You will work as part of a small dedicated team who will cover evenings and weekends 365 days a year. You will be responsible for the management and supervision of OOH staff and ensuring the quality and standards of out of hours work.

The posts available are based on fulltime equivalent but applications from people interested in working less than fulltime would be welcome. All posts will work on a rota shift basis.

This post is considered as Regulated Work with Vulnerable Children and/or Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. From 28 February 2011, preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG scheme update check prior to formal offer of employment being made by Dumfries and Galloway Council.

Applicants who have been resident outside the UK within the last 5 years, if offered a position, in addition to a Disclosure Scotland Check, will be required to provide a completed police record check from the police authority in the country or countries in which they were resident.
