Exciting Opportunity For Community Wellbeing Officers In Pembrokeshire

Thursday 1st Oct 2020

An exciting opportunity has arisen in Pembrokeshire for Community Wellbeing Officers to help deliver a new regional pro-active wellbeing service.

There are several vacancies available for innovative, flexible and motivated individuals to excel in working as a key part of the Delta Wellbeing team to deliver this exciting new model of pro-active Technology Enabled Care (TEC) service as part of the Welsh Government’s Transformation Fund project across the West Wales Partnership Board region.

The posts will be hosted in Pembrokeshire by one of three partner organisations; Hywel Dda University Health Board, within the Pembrokeshire Community Directorate, Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS), within the Community Connector team; and the British Red Cross, within the PIVOT Caseworker team.

Councillor Tessa Hodgson, Pembrokeshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Social Services, said: “These posts are key to the development of our Pro-active Technology Enabled Care offer in Pembrokeshire. We are absolutely delighted to be able to offer several vacancies to help us deliver this brand new, exciting and innovative service alongside our partners.

“In terms of the posts themselves, awareness of the issues associated with working with elderly or vulnerable people would be desirable, along with information about social care, and/or other services provided by the local authority, health and the third sector. Candidates should also be able to communicate effectively with a wide range of people and provide excellent customer service over the phone and in person. 

“A comprehensive induction training programme would be provided when you join us and on-going training to support your development. We’d encourage anyone who feels they have these skills and a desire to make a change to apply now.”

The Delta Wellbeing service provides a multi-function call/contact handling service 24x7 across south-west Wales. It is available to people who use social alarms, it also deals with out-of-hours emergency calls for council services and is an initial point of contact for social care to adults in Carmarthenshire and beyond.

In line with the new model of service you will be required to carry out pro-active wellbeing assessments for service users in their own home or in community settings, with follow up support and review as appropriate. You will be a key member of the Pembrokeshire Team providing Information, Advice and Assistance regarding community services for members of the public, outside agencies, health colleagues and other stakeholders requiring support.

The deadline for the wellbeing posts is Friday, December 6 with interviews taking place on Wednesday, December 11, Thursday 12 and Friday 13.
