Texels Welzijn is applying per. September 1 a committed and broadly capable Social Worker

From 1 September 2022, we are looking for a committed and broadly capable social worker (Village Work and Social Work) for a part-time employment.

Texels Welzijn is the organization for reliable, close and helpful social work on Texel.

We are looking for a colleague to do the ‘village work’ for several villages on Texel. In addition, you are responsive to all social issues from residents and you actively support the cooperation in the villages and elsewhere on Texel. In addition, you are partially available for our social work.

In our committed team of nine colleagues, you have great independence in your work, and no two days are alike. In your work you have many opportunities to be meaningful. The lines are short and ‘connection and maintenance’ is crucial to us. Your working hours are flexible in consultation. And Texel, with its beach and mudflats, is obviously a wonderful place to enjoy outside of work.
