Adults and Communities

Barnet Council is an exciting and innovative place to be, and here in the Adults and Communities Delivery Unit we are committed to the work we do and the difference we make to residents of Barnet every single day, month and year. We encourage staff to be empowered in making changes and initiate actions that improve our services. Ultimately we should all be happy for our friends and family to receive the services we deliver and commission, and so that is where our focus always lies.

Adults and Communities comprises people with a range of professional specialisms and expertise, including: social workers; assessment and enablement officers; occupational therapists; speech therapists; contract brokers; financial and performance analysts and administrative staff.

We value the skills that new staff can offer, to make a real difference to people who use our services and their carers. Irrespective of whether the role is frontline or back office, you would be joining a group of people focussed on providing excellent services for the local community.

 “You never feel alone working at Barnet Council, management are very supportive, the caseloads are manageable and working hours are flexible.” Adjoa

I’m glad that you’re considering joining us as we continue our focus on ensuring a better customer experience for everyone. Our business plan includes the following priorities:

  1. Developing our strengths based approach to social care
  2. Working more effectively with each other within the Delivery Unit and across the health and social care system
  3. Developing and embedding new services, including: training and support for dementia carers, personal assistants, shared lives, telecare and new housing options
  4. Improving the information and advice that we offer
  5. Providing and commissioning high quality services and using the Quality Assurance and Learning Framework to improve our understanding of whether we are supporting adults in the right way, at the right time, and how we are making a difference to their lives

“I joined Barnet Council in 2012 and since then I’ve worked on many different projects and complex cases. There are so many opportunities to progress your career in Occupational Therapy here.” Karen
