Recovery Worker

Fixed term contract until 4th August 2020

You’ve got a good understanding of mental health issues and really enjoy supporting others to achieve independence and lead their own recovery. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Recovery Worker.

Right now, our 24 hour Supported Housing service in Stowmarket is looking for someone like you to support the people who use our services to maintain their tenancy and independence in the community. Not only are we committed to putting them at the heart of everything we do, we recognise they should be involved in decisions that affect their future too. That’s why we need you to inspire and support them to lead their own recovery. So, whether it’s helping to come up with a personal support plan that will see them achieve their goals and aspirations, developing domestic and finance management skills or accessing work, leisure or educational opportunities, your empathy, enthusiasm and compassion will have every chance to shine. Entering accurate case notes onto our IT system will be important too. And, when it comes to regularly liaising with GP surgeries, the local council, charities etc. or promoting the service within the community, again, we'll count on you.

The chances are, you already work in the mental health field. What is for certain is that you’re caring, consistent, flexible and creative, work well under pressure, know how to connect with people at all levels and, like us, are keen to break down the stigma of mental health. Oh and you’re happy working independently or, as a valued member of our team, being part of a weekly rota system and providing sleep in cover.

You will need a driving licence and access to a car with business insurance.

The postholder will be required to work (upon average) of five sleeps- in shifts per month, equating to an additional £4,698.00 per annum. This is an estimated figure and may be subject to change.

So, are you ready to take on this rewarding role that comes with some really great benefits, including a smartphone? Apply now via our website.

Closing date: 22nd August 2019
