As a Senior Recovery Worker you will lead by example and provide guidance and line management support to team members.  You will also support the Hub Manager to ensure service delivery targets are met. Significant substance misuse experience essential for this role as well as experience of providing line management or mentorship support.

The Ideal Candidate

Having handled a significant caseload in a busy environment as a Recovery worker or similar, you’ll have a deep understanding of substance misuse, complex needs and the Recovery Agenda. It’s an extremely varied role, so flexibility, a track record of DANOS compliance and knowledge of relapse and other barriers to recovery will be vital. Naturally, we also look for a Senior Recovery Worker with excellent communication skills, ideally, a vocational qualification, such as an NVQ 3, or equivalent. This role requires a high level of administration, organization and time management. These skills are just as important as your people skills and client work. You will be based in Wakefield though travel within the district will be necessary.
