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 a Recovery Worker to join the team on the Isle of Wight. You will be based in an office with NHS colleagues, as this is an innovative partnership project. Working alongside NHS and Richmond Fellowship Colleagues, you will enable clients recovering from recent  ill health with their recovery journey.

Day-to-day, you’ll manage a caseload of clients working closely alongside your NHS colleagues, and give them all the support they need to enable them to help sustain their recovery. You’ll also work with individuals to develop an appropriate personal support plan that addresses their recovery goals  and specific needs, whether they need help with building confidence to manage tasks such as healthy eating, or physical exercise goals, or help with accessing a full range of community services.

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 services and activities is also essential.

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.

Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £17,070 apply to this post, subject to the postholder meeting the eligibility and performance criteria.

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