An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Community Inclusion worker to work with us in our Rise integrated neighbourhood team. The post holder will work closely with Primary Care, Rutland County Council, community health and Voluntary Sector colleagues.  If you have experience of working in a health or social care environment, providing support to people within their own homes and community to enable them to live independently and reduce the need for health and social care interventions we want to hear from you.

 About you…

  • Maths & English GCSE Grade C or above, or equivalent
  • Relevant experience of working within a health, social care or voluntary sector setting
  • Awareness of the needs of vulnerable people, including older people
  • Can demonstrate a systematic approach to prioritisation of work and cope under pressure to meet deadlines
  • Able to communicate with others in a positive and respectful manner


 About the role…

The community inclusion worker will undertake the following:

  • To co-ordinate the care and multi-disciplinary involvement of those people being managed under the Integrated Neighbourhood.
  • Take a proactive approach to using population health management data held on record to identify patients who would benefit from proactive preventative support
  • Support the identification of voluntary sector support and maintain, promote, and coordinate the Rutland social prescribing platform
  • To act as a central point of information and a guide to processes for both health and social care services in the neighbourhood to improve working practices

The community inclusion worker is based within the defined neighbourhood of Rutland, to improve joined up working practices leading to more efficient patient/service user care. As part of this role, the post holder will take on the administrative management of the regular multi-disciplinary team meetings and agreed actions from these meetings.  The community inclusion worker will work with all health and social care professionals, as well as statutory/non statutory agencies, to provide a seamless, integrated service to our service users.

This role will also be considered as a secondment opportunity.

The successful applicant for this post will be subject to an enhanced check by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The costs for the DBS are paid by us.

 The community inclusion worker interviews will be held week commencing 27 May 2024.  Please be advised this could be subject to change, in which case we will give appropriate notice.
