Whitehaven, Cumbria

Permanent, Part-time
Job description

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 Night Recovery Worker. 

Right now, our Crisis service in Whitehaven is looking for someone like you to work with us, supporting individuals through their recovery journey, providing innovative recovery and crisis service interventions. 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.  And, when it comes to liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to give people access to a full range of services, again, we’ll rely on your expertise.

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. 

This is a permanent role requiring the post-holder to work 30 hours per week. The post-holder will be expected to work waking-night shifts.

The salary for this role is £17,654.00 per annum, with progression up to £17,830.00 per annum (pro-rata 30 hours per week).

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.

Closing Date for applications is 1st February 2021. (We reserve the right to close vacancies before the specified closing date, should a large number of applications be received).

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

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.
