We are looking for a Social Worker to work within the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust in our Access and Assessment team based in Ipswich. While the post will be based in Ipswich travelling will be required throughout Suffolk. Mental Health experience is essential to the role. Access and Assessment is the first point of contact for referrals for adults aged 25+ into secondary Mental Health services.

For the role you will need to understand The Care Programme Approach and be confident in your understanding of the Care Act and applying it to service users with mental health problems. You will be responsible for assessing adults who have been referred into our services. You will be able to assess risk and make appropriate decisions. Ideally you will have knowledge of local resources to support people who are signposted to other agencies and support networks but this is not essential.
