Sessional Workers Jobs in Belfast
Join a team that's making a real difference.
Adfam is the only national charity tackling the effects of alcohol, drug use or gambling on family members and friends. We improve life for thousands of people. One way we do this is by empowering families and friends to get the support they need.
We want anyone affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use or gambling problem to have the chance to benefit from healthy relationships, be part of a loving and supportive family and enjoy mental and physical wellbeing.
This role offers the opportunity to be part of a successful national remote service, offering support via the phone or Zoom to any affected adult in England. We are looking to recruit experienced Family Support professionals to provide these virtual support sessions to individual family members and sometimes groups. We are interested to hear from those who are able to offer availability during the working day/week and/or in the evenings and at weekends. We are interested in those who can offer a minimum of 10 hours weekly, up to a maximum of 25.
Experience in supporting family members affected by someone else’s substance use is essential, as is experience with assessing and managing risk, and work with clients experiencing domestic abuse.
We offer sessional contracts with the possibility of minimum hours or fixed hours arrangements following a probationary period. While our zero hours contracts cannot guarantee hours, we are experiencing high numbers of referrals for our remote support service. We aim to recruit to meet demand/need. In the two years of the service so far, we have been able to offer client hours broadly at the level that sessional workers have requested. The service is currently funded for at least a further 18 months and we are actively seeking additional funding to continue and expand the work.
