Job Information

If you have a compassionate nature and a genuine desire to help others, you could be just what we're looking for.

As a Recovery Worker you will be providing support and advice to people who are experiencing difficulties due to substance misuse. You will manage referrals into the service, completing triage assessment and providing appropriate harm reduction advice. You will also develop plans with clients to help them get their lives back to where they want them to be.

There will be assessments to carry out and records you need to keep and update, that's all part of our professional commitment and service to our clients and commissioners.

If you think this could be the career for you, take the first step and apply now to join our amazing team.

This post will work within a dedicated Criminal Justice Team that will be both integrated with partner agencies but also an extension of the existing drug and alcohol team in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. As an Recovery Worker you will be meeting people in their space more often than in an office.

The role will offer access to required interventions and treatment in outreach locations, as well as bases, improving referral times for psychological, physical health and wellbeing. Making all contacts count and maximising engagement, whilst reducing overall associated harm.

Please note, access to a vehicle and a full UK driving licence is required for this role as you will be required to travel across Shrewsbury and South Shropshire (Ludlow and Bridgnorth)
