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 Waking Nights Recovery Worker.
Right now, our Eden Community service is looking for someone like you to work night shifts and support people at our Abbots Bank service in Penrith, concentrating on their personal goals and aspirations. 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.
We currently have one post available for 17 hours per week, and one post available for a Casual Worker.
The salary for the 17 hour per-week post is £16,693 (pro rata for 17 hours per week) with subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £17,230 (pro-rata) per annum. The salary for the Casual Worker post is £8.21 per hour.
Closing date: 27th September 2019
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.
