Join our Adult Social Care team to help support the people of South Tyneside to Live Better Lives
Adult Social Care is changing. We are a forward thinking Council that is developing innovative approaches to meet our challenges head on.
Over the last few years we have changed the way we work with people in South Tyneside by putting more focus on supporting them to remain independent and to live the life they choose.
Our Let's Talk Together approach based on 3 conversations, puts the person at the centre of their decision making, as experts in their own lives. Our staff help people to explore the networks around them that can help:
maintain and develop their independence
make healthy choices
make them feel part of a community
build on their strengths and assets
As we develop our South Tyneside Alliance with our health and social care partners across South Tyneside, we are looking to recruit a number of dedicated and committed individuals to support the next phase of our journey.
Working for us
We value and are proud of the commitment and contribution of every single employee and recognise that they are our greatest asset.
We want our employees to be equally as proud to work for Adults and Integrated Care.
Our aim is to work with all our partners and deliver Practice to be Proud of to support the people of South Tyneside to Live Better Lives. To enable us to do this, we are changing our practice to have conversations to find out what really matters to the people we work with and we are getting to know what there is in our communities, so we can link people with the right support.
We remain committed to developing a culture of innovation and continuous improvement, of openness and transparency and of inspirational leadership, grounded in our values and behaviour framework: Moving Forward Together: Our Values; Our Behaviours; Our Future.
We want to recruit people who share this aim and provide them with the training and development to do their jobs to the best of their abilities.
