Night Recovery Worker - Angel Lace
This exciting new development within Nottingham City welcomes enthusiastic applicants to apply for this rare opportunity to be involved in shaping a brand new service that will support individuals with complex mental health needs.
Angel Lace is a supported living service that supports people who may have dual diagnoses, legal restrictions, a history of drug/and or alcohol use and complex self-harming behaviours.
Passionate about people, you’ll enjoy the scope and support individuals to gain the skills to live independently.
At Turning Point, we support people across the UK with mental health issues. As a Night Recovery Worker, you’ll make a real difference to their lives as you work closely with them to help them achieve their potential. Turning Point has several well-established services within Nottingham. You will form part of a wider supportive management team within the region and there is the opportunity for growth in the future.
As a Night Recovery Worker, you will work holistically to support guests if they are having difficulty during the night, developing risk management strategies and promoting sleep hygiene.
You will work with a sleep-in member of staff, who will be available for support when required. Supporting the work identified within person-centred support plans, you will play a vital role in helping them to gain skills and coping strategies, all while encouraging positive change and independence.
Shift patterns run from 21:45pm to 8:15am. You will receive time allocated for regular supervision and attendance at team meetings, as well as training and career development opportunities.
Additional day shifts may also be available.
The typical part-time hours available as a Night Recovery Worker are approximately 20 hours per week. Please do not be put off from applying for this position if your hours would need to fluctuate as there are varying hours of work available at this service.
The Ideal Candidate
Suitably qualified, with experience in the mental health sector, it’s essential that you have a good understanding of the recovery model, together with a solution–focused attitude and a person–centred approach. You’ll be equally comfortable getting things done on your own initiative and as part of a team, and have no problems working in a fast–paced environment and adapting to challenging situations. And of course, you’ll be the sort of person who enjoys talking to people with different needs, is genuinely interested in helping them, and possesses a deep level of empathy, understanding and patience.
As a leading health and social care provider with more than 300 locations across England, we take real pride in the services we offer.
Across the varied regions, sectors and settings we operate within, our organisation is held together by a shared vision – and our people are connected by the same values. These include belief in potential, confidence in communication, embracing positive change and always treating each other as individuals.
We run all of our services on a not-for-profit basis; instead, we invest every penny back into our services and people. We never stop believing in change for the better, and we work constantly to improve the lives of the people we support.
Our people bring our vision to life. So, if you are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to support others to fulfilling their potential, here at Turning Point, we don't just offer you a job – we offer you a career.
