Do you have an understanding of mental health issues or experience of working in mental health? 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 Mental Health Decision Unit based at Royal Preston Hospital. This service provides support and short term interventions for people experiencing a mental health crisis, to prevent admission to hospital.
Day‐to‐day, you’ll support individuals to develop emotional management and personal life skills to achieve greater independence and self‐esteem. You will support individuals to develop coping mechanisms and tools to better manage their mental health. And, when it comes to liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to give people access to a full range of services and support, 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. You will also need to be willing to participate in a 24/7 rota that includes waking nights and sleep‐ins.
*Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £17,070.00 (Pro rata) will apply to this post, subject to the post holder meeting the eligibility and performance criteria.
This role is 22.5 hours per week.
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: 27th May 2018.
