Recovery Worker - Herefordshire Recovery Service

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

At Turning Point, we have been supporting people for 60 years.

As a Recovery Worker within the Herefordshire Recovery Service, you’ll make a real difference as you empower and enable people to change. Passionate about people, you’ll receive support to enhance your own life too, as you make the role your own in a friendly and multidisciplinary team.

As a Recovery Worker we offer a starting salary of £24,150 rising each year in line with our pay progression salary bands, rising to £28,252 per year. (Dependent on experience you may be offered a starting salary above the initial starting salary).

You will have opportunities to progress your career with a structured learning journey and clearly defined career pathways that will enable you to achieve your long-term goals and work to your strengths.

Whether you are looking to progress into a management and leadership role or to be a specialist in your field as an Advanced Recovery Practitioner at Turning point we will support and encourage you on your career journey.

Role Responsibility

We have opportunities for Recovery Workers in our Alcohol & Non-Opiate Team and Opiate Team, providing assessments, treatment, psychosocial interventions, and care to drug and alcohol users. You will join a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, recovery workers and peer mentors and be required to work alongside a range of partners in criminal justice, housing, mental health, and health and social care.

You will be responsible for a caseload of clients across the county and as such will be expected to work flexibly across different sites.

The Ideal Candidate

You’ll understand alcohol and other substance use issues, as well as appropriate treatment pathways, and the challenges and opportunities for individuals on a recovery journey. Substantial knowledge and/or experience of current detox and prescribing options would also be advantageous, but we offer full training.

The role is varied, so flexibility, an ability to work dynamically on a one-to-one and group basis, and knowledge of relapse prevention and other skills to promote recovery will be vital. We also look for candidates with excellent communication and organisational skills who share our values as an organisation. We are also keen to hear from people with lived experience.

We value individual creativity and initiative and, whatever your role, you will be fully involved in identifying opportunities to improve the quality of our services and the experience of the people we support. Your ideas will be listened to, and your suggestions implemented wherever possible. You will be supported in your role by extensive training to help develop your skills. Our learning culture encourages everyone to stay on top of the latest developments in their field and helps drive service improvement.
