This post is 1 Year Fixed Term Contract
At Turning Point, we support people across the UK with substance misuse issues. As a Recovery Worker, you'll make a real difference to their lives as you develop the personal, flexible and realistic support packages they need to help turn things around. Passionate about people, you'll enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life too, as you make the role your own as part of a friendly and multidisciplinary team.
Raising the bar for people-centred care, you'll provide advice and information to service users. Of course, that means not only putting their wellbeing first, but providing an outstanding service for their families too. People's lives will be truly changed by you. So, we'll offer the chance to thrive on a wide range of challenges as you build relationships throughout every stage of their recovery. From recognising indicators of substance and alcohol misuse and making referrals, to working closely with healthcare professionals such as GPs and social services, your dedication will make a better future possible.
Our Recovery Workers need to have excellent time management skills, and be able to case manage a mixed caseload of Service Users. You will need to have a deep understanding of substance and alcohol misuse and the Recovery Agenda. You also need to be adept at using client information systems, NDTMS, and be able to deliver high competency around data recording. The role is varied and so flexibility and an ability to work dynamically on a one to one and group basis. Naturally, we also look for Recovery Workers with excellent communication skills and, ideally, a vocational qualification, such as an NVQ 3 or equivalent.
Running health facilities and services on a not-for-profit basis, we invest every penny back into our care - and our people. So, if you're ambitious and focused on substance misuse, progress a Recovery Worker career with real value.
The working hours are 37 per week and some late night and weekend will be required.
We reserve the right to close this advert early if we are able to appoint to the vacancy before the advertised closed date.
