Would you like to be part of an organisation that counts on the professionalism, insight, expertise and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people they work with? Then join us as a Recovery Worker.

Recovery Focus is a new group of expert charities with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between us we have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together we believe we can lead the way in evidence-based recovery pathways, tailored to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for Recovery Workers to join the team at our Macclesfield service in Cheshire. Richmond Fellowship provides a supported housing service to people affected by homelessness and complex needs in Macclesfield who require low levels of support. We focus on making recovery reality for everyone who uses our services and work with residents as equal partners to co-produce an individual package of support.

Day-to-day, you’ll manage a caseload of residents and give them all the support they need to enable them to participate in community life. You’ll also work with individuals to develop an appropriate personal support plan that addresses their specific needs. Helping them to develop domestic, financial and emotional management and personal life skills to achieve greater independence and self-esteem will be important too. And, when it comes to liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to give people access to a full range of services, again, we’ll rely on your expertise.

A great listener, with a flexible approach and a flair for planning and prioritising a busy workload, you love motivating and engaging people in a range of developmental and rehabilitative activities. What’s more, you have a good understanding of mental health issues and how they affect people. Experience of identifying and co-ordinating a range of services to meet an individual’s needs and to enable them to engage with community activities is also essential.

In return, you can expect some great benefits, including 25 days' holiday, contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme and childcare vouchers, plus exceptional professional development and training opportunities.

So, get inspired today and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career.

Closing date: 21st August 2017
