The post also provides formal supervision to a number of staff within the team and thus contributes to the development and driving up of professional standards across the workforce and ensuring a high quality, responsive, preventative and professional service to the community. The post plays a significant role in ensuring that the operational day to day activities of assessments, support planning, undertaking Duty and 'emergency' response visits are carried out to the vulnerable people that Adult Services support on a daily basis. It is also a key 'player' in a range of multi-disciplinary settings - working with a wide range of professionals across the social, health, health, educational, statutory, private and voluntary sector - such as a Best Interest Meeting, a Safeguarding Vulnerable Adult investigation, a Vulnerable Adult Risk Management (VARM) meeting, MAPPA, EHCP etc. This post carries a caseload that requires a high level of professional support which can range from those requiring assessment through to increasingly complex presentations that require a higher level of intervention.
