Independent Support Brokers offer support to clients who have social care needs.
You will assist them to find services that are available in their area to offer the appropriate support. In most cases this will be supporting social care clients who have been assessed by a social worker to require a particular support package. The Support Broker will seek to find what is available and try to negotiate costs within the client’s budget.
Support brokers can also support self-funding clients who need support to find services within a reasonable cost to meet their needs. Part of the role will also be about creative thinking to find ways to meet the client’s needs whilst taking in consideration the person’s preference and views of how this care is delivered.
We are now offering a £2000 Golden Hello payment for this role.
