We need a bright, skilled and friendly administrator to join Derbyshire's Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS) Team.
DOLS is a legal process that requires careful administration (no previous experience of DOLS is required). Our admin staff are highly valued and are at the heart of the team. Tasks include liaising with care homes, social workers and the public, checking reports for errors, circulating forms and maintaining spreadsheets. We deal with sensitive information, and so respect for confidentiality is essential.
You will need good IT and communication skills. Once trained, you will need to exercise judgement and initiative when researching and resolving problems. The ability to work at speed, whilst maintain excellent attention to detail, is essential.
For an informal conversation, please contact Carl O'Riordan, DOLS Service Manager, on 07790 585 976.
