Do you have a genuine interest in Safeguarding Adults and the Mental Capacity Act and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (MCA/DoLS)? Would you like the opportunity to contribute to and influence the local Safeguarding system and agenda? If so, then we have an exciting opportunity for you!
We are looking for an experienced Nurse or Social Worker to join our multi-disciplinary specialist Safeguarding Adults team as a Safeguarding Practitioner. Our expectation is that your experience will include working with a range of adults, e.g. older people, people with dementia, people with physical and/or learning disabilities or mental health problems. The specific role of Safeguarding Adults Team is to respond to allegations of abuse as defined by Section 42 of the Care Act 2014 in line with its accompanying guidance. The team also provide a response to applications for authorisation of Deprivation of Liberty (MCA/DoLS)
You will need to be highly organised with excellent communication skills and the ability to work collaboratively and effectively across professions and agencies in order to make evidence based decisions. You will need to be confident in your approach when dealing with others, often in challenging and difficult situations. You must be able to demonstrate a level of self-discipline in managing a workload and a level of emotional resilience in dealing with the challenges that this role inevitably brings. In addition, we would expect that you would have a broad understanding of the national and local Safeguarding agenda and MCA/DoLS.
In return we can offer you the opportunity to genuinely make a difference to some of the most vulnerable people in our community and we can promise you that we will value and use the experience you bring from your professional background.
If this sounds like an opportunity that you would be interested in, then we look forward to receiving an application from you.
