As a Recovery Worker you will deliver specific components of prescribed care packages under the direct supervision of Care Coordinators and Clinical Leads. The post holder will provide structured support and practical assistance to service users in order for them to take control over their own lives and engage actively in their own recovery process.

We welcome applications from people with lived experience of mental health difficulties and the service encourages the use of the wisdom gained through personal ‘lived’ experience – all candidates must have strong values around recovery, social inclusion, and diversity.

You will be motivated and a have a positive attitude towards innovation and change with a responsible, flexible approach and excellent interpersonal and team working skills.  The post requires you to work with service users of all ages (over 18) and to provide a flexible service between the hours of 8am and 8pm, Monday to Friday.
