    Description

    At Turning Point, we support people across the UK with substance misuse issues. As a Senior Recovery Worker, you'll make a real difference to their lives as you develop the personal, flexible and realistic support packages they need to help turn things around. Passionate about people, you'll enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life too, as you make the role your own as part of a friendly and multidisciplinary team.

    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. 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 and alcohol misuse and making referrals, to working closely with healthcare professionals such as GPs and social services, your dedication will make a better future possible.Having handled a significant mixed caseload in a busy environment as a Senior Recovery Worker or similar, you'll have a deep understanding of substance and alcohol misuse and the Recovery Agenda. It's an extremely varied role, so flexibility, an ability to work dynamically on a one to one and group basis and knowledge of relapse and other barriers to recovery will be vital. Naturally, we also look for Senior Recovery Workers with excellent communication skills and, ideally, a vocational qualification, such as an NVQ 3 or equivalent.
