I am delighted that you have expressed an interest in working for focus as there has never been a better, or more exciting, time to join us.
Whilst we face the same challenges as other adult social care organisations, we believe that being an Independent Social Work Practice provides us with unique opportunities to be more flexible and creative in our approach. This benefits the people who use our services, their families and carers and also our staff.
We believe it is important to recruit talented individuals who share our vision. We know that attracting and keeping the best people is the most effective way to build a successful organisation so we are committed to investing in you and your future. We offer a generous and competitive remuneration package and will provide you with personal and professional development opportunities throughout your career.
We value our staff, trusting and empowering them to be part of real change for our organisation, our service users, their families and carers. In return we are looking for people who are passionate about making a difference to people’s lives.
In a time when Directors of Adult Social Services are increasingly drawn from other professions, we are an organisation led by social workers and social work values. I hope that the information contained in this pack gives you a real flavour of focus and I look forward to hearing from you.
We are an independent Social Work led practice. We strive to be at the heart of our community and to be flexible and responsive in our approach. We work closely with North East Lincolnshire Council and all other agencies across the Health & Social Care sector, and are committed to supporting and investing in local solutions and growth.
Our core values include openness, respect and equality for all. We champion diversity and everyone’s right to live independently. We endeavour to support people to make informed choices and to stay in control of their own lives whatever their circumstances.
