Do you have experience of working in mental health or a related environment? 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 Hornby Road. We work with individuals to develop a specific package of support using the Recovery Star framework. We aim to encourage people to become more confident and independent and help them develop their skills.

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.

Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £16,810 will apply to this post, subject to the postholder meeting the eligibility and performance criteria

In return, you can expect some great benefits, including 25 days' holiday (pro rata), contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme and childcare vouchers, plus exceptional professional development and training opportunities. You must be able to participate in a rota that includes sleepover shifts away from home.

 

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