The Ideal Candidate

This vital role calls for experience in substance misuse and working within integrated, community settings, preferably in a busy urban setting. You will certainly know how to deliver a range of services, treatments and interventions in a person-centred way. This must be supported by strong knowledge of how to identify and support clients through risk, dual diagnosis, safe guarding and child protection issues. You will also need a good understanding of the recovery agenda and of combining medical and psycho-social support tools for maximum effect. Add to all these strengths excellent written and spoken communication skills, and you will quickly make your mark as part of our team.

Legislation recently introduced, which will come into force on 1 April 2022 means that for our services that conduct “Regulated Activity” as defined by the CQC, require us to ensure that any applicant is able to evidence at least one COVID-19 vaccination with a planned date scheduled for the second vaccination to take place by 1st April 2022 – therefore all offers will be made subject to candidates providing satisfactory evidence of their COVID-19 vaccination status (or relevant exemption). Details of what will amount to satisfactory evidence can be provided upon request.
