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 Casual Recovery Worker on an ‘as and when’ needed basis.

We are looking for a Casual Recovery Worker to join the team at Tower House, our 24 hour Supported Housing service in Chester. 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.

You will also need good record keeping skills and be adept at data entry and willing to participate in a rota that includes lone working, weekends, on call and sleep-ins across a variety of services.

We are looking for caring, consistent, flexible and creative individuals who work well under pressure and are keen to work in mental health. Good communication is essential, as is a good knowledge of mental health. You will receive a full induction, regular supervisions, as well as opportunities for personal and professional development by working across our range of services. You will also have access to learning and development opportunities.

The hourly rate for Casual Workers is £8.72.

We are committed to increasing our diversity and we would welcome applications from those with lived experience and/or who are from a BAME background.

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.
