We are seeking highly motivated qualified Social Workers with proven knowledge and experiences in Older People’s social work. You will be a key team member of the Older People’s team, delivering quality social work assessments and acting as the decision maker in line with the Key Principles of the Mental Capacity Act (2005), to enable vulnerable older people over 65 years of age within the Wrexham County to remain at home or in the most appropriate environment.  

The role will see you working in partnerships with key stakeholders including NHS, local authority or independent sector providers, families and unpaid carers to ensure quality care and support is provided to older people. You will have the opportunity to support older people with a range of needs and be skilled in holding “what matters” conversations to inform assessments and the provision of outcome focused support. 

The Older People’s team is involved in a number of projects to improve services to our citizens including integrated working across the whole system. These projects and partnerships across Wrexham are benefiting Older People, so it’s a great time to join the team and contribute to the shaping of future services.

The Council welcomes applications from suitably qualified candidates regardless of race, gender, disability, sexuality, religious belief or age.

The Council is committed to developing its bilingual workforce and welcomes applications from candidates who demonstrate their capability to work in both English and Welsh. Applications submitted in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than an application submitted in English
