    Raising the bar for people-centred care, you'll provide advice and information to service users. Of course, that means not only putting their wellbeing first, but providing an outstanding service for their families too. People's lives will be truly changed by you, as you must be able to build rapport quickly with clients and be able to motivate clients to make appropriate decisions. So, we'll offer the chance to thrive on a wide range of challenges as you build relationships throughout every stage of their recovery. From recognising indicators of substance misuse, providing harm reduction advice and psychosocial interventions, to working closely with healthcare professionals such as GPs and social services, your dedication will make a better future possible.

    Having handled a significant caseload in a busy environment as a Recovery Coordinator 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 Recovery Coordinators with excellent communication skills, ideally, a vocational qualification, such as an NVQ 3 or equivalent . These roles require a high level of administration, organisation and time management. These skills are just as important as your people skills and client work as you will be responsible for the coordination and navigation of individuals care. It is also desirable that you hold a full UK driving license and have access to your own transport.
