As a Social Worker would you like to:

  • Be able to make a greater impact in the community?
  • Work for an innovative award- winning and forward-thinking community led voluntary organisation?
  • Cut out reams of red tape, respond to need quickly and flexibly and be able to ‘actually get things done?’
  • Utilise a range of proactive relationship-based approaches?
  • Be able to avail of an attractive job package with flexible working arrangements?

CLARE, which stands for Creative Local Action Responses and Engagement, is a community led voluntary organisation working within North Belfast that enables vulnerable adults and older people to maintain their independence and work together to reduce social isolation and loneliness.

Supported by funding from the Department of Health, an exciting opportunity has arisen for a Community Social Worker post, and guess what?

We’re thinking outside of the box to get the right person! Open to flexible working arrangements, we’re focusing on getting the best person for the job. We’re about working as a team, securing the best people and making an impact in the community.

What we are looking for:

  • A motivated and eager social worker (NISCC registered or has eligibility to register).
  • Someone with excellent communication skills, the ability to work as an autonomous practitioner, as well as a team player.
  • Knowledge and understanding of wider health inequalities that impact on people’s health and well-being.
  • Preferably with at least six month’s experience working with older persons.

What’s in it for you:

  • Flexible working; a range of options are available from full-time, part-time, job share, secondment and remote working.
  • Access to a range of training courses and professional development opportunities to keep you upskilled and satisfy your NISCC registration.
  • A real work – life balance, supporting you to support the community.
  • A generous annual leave entitlement.
  • Contributing to a progressive employee support system.
  • An opportunity to make a real difference using the innovative CLARE approach.
