Our work includes setting rehabilitation goals with clients and Support Workers in the home setting; facilitating the client's and family's adjustment to the injuries; recruiting, training and supporting support workers; and managing care regimes. Training opportunities for continuing professional development are offered both internally and externally, and clinical supervision and training are provided by our Clinical Supervisors.
All applicants for the role of a Brain Injury Clinical Case Manager must be qualified in Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Social Work or Nursing etc. and currently be registered to practice in the UK. You will need to have experience of working with brain injured adults and/or children, and have an understanding of their needs, and the needs of their families.
After a period of office-based training and induction, most of our Case Managers are given the opportunity to work from home. After this period, all Case Managers are required to attend our offices in Hawkhurst four-weekly for in-house training, and at least one further day per fortnight to provide support in the office and to participate in clinical supervision sessions. All Case Managers will be included on our out-of-hours on call duty rota. Our client base is predominantly the South/South East and London and the Home Counties, and clients are allocated, where possible, within reasonable travelling distance of the Case Manager’s home address.
Case Management roles are full time - 37.5 hours a week.
Details of current Case Management opportunities will be posted here as they arise. Please check back regularly for updates.
* We may consider offering trainee positions to those applicants who would require additional training, supervision and experience in order to reach the level of competence and confidence required of a Case Manager.
Details of current vacancies and how to apply will be posted here as they arise.
Please check back regularly for updates.
As and when necessary, we recruit Support Workers on behalf of our clients. Whilst we manage the recruitment, employment and payroll on behalf of the client, the Support Worker is officially employed by our client. Every client's needs are different, and so Support Worker hours, roles and responsibilities can vary greatly.
