Do you have the skills to empower others to take control of their recovery? 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 are expert partners 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 at Trevayler which has been operating in Derby since 1993, supporting individuals through their recovery journey, providing innovative recovery and crisis service interventions.

Day-to-day, you will work with individuals to support the development and delivery of ‘client led’ recovery and safety planning, helping others to regain sustainable control over their challenges and maximise independence.  The role will also involve facilitating groups, meetings and innovative, coproduced projects. You will also assist in administration and domestic activities associated with running the service.

A great listener, with a flexible approach and a flair for planning and prioritising a busy workload, you will possess the skill to motivate and engage people in a range of developmental and recovery focused activities through encouragement and understanding.  Contributing to an environment that respects the dignity, independence and choice of each individual.

You will need to be able to remain focused in challenging situations, facilitate others to identify creative solutions to unfamiliar situations, be consistently enthusiastic, highly motivated, flexible, resilient, resourceful and professional.

Sleep-in shifts and waking nights are all part of the shift system that you will be required to work for which an extra payment is awarded.

**The quoted salary is based on the postholder working an estimated 4 sleep-in shifts per month at £63.75 per sleep in.

Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £19,635 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, contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme and childcare vouchers, plus exceptional professional development and training opportunities.

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

Closing date: 22nd January 2018
