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.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a Recovery Worker to join the team at Trinity Street. Trinity Street is a 24 hour registered care home situated in Batley Carr, a short distance from Dewsbury. The building was purpose built, and is decorated and furnished throughout to a high standard.

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 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.

You will be required to participate in a 24 hour/7 day week shift rota.

Richmond Fellowship is part of Recovery Focus, a national group of charities highly experienced in providing specialist support services to individuals and families living with the effects of mental ill health, drug and alcohol use, gambling and domestic violence. We know that recovery can look and feel very different to each and every one of us. But we also know that if we provide the right support, at the right time, we can inspire recovery nationwide and that recovery is possible for everyone.

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