Recovery Support Worker

Salary - £16,231 (pro-rata)

12 hours per week

SASS are looking for a Recovery Support Worker to join the Alcohol Recovery Community (ARC) team.

We are looking for an individual to support new ARC service users and assist them to join a thriving, well-supported and lively recovery community. As part of your role you will introduce service users to the concept of recovery and help them to develop their recovery capital by setting goals and developing personal recovery plans. Together with the ARC staff team, you will be the first point of contact for new service users both within our Abbeydale Road office and within external partner organisations.

Wherever possible, SASS actively recruits certain posts from within the recovery community and we very much see this role as a development post, providing the opportunity for people within the recovery community to develop their skills and experience within the field. The successful candidate will be welcomed into a supportive employment environment, however you will need to be able to demonstrate stability with your own recovery, clear boundaries and be able to commit to discussing any ongoing challenges you may have regarding these with the ARC manager.

If you have any further questions, want to apply or may need to discuss the impact of this post on your current situation then please contact Manja Wolfram on 0114 2587553

Closing Date: Friday 22nd September

Interview Date: Monday 2nd October

Please note - Sheffield Alcohol Support Service (SASS) will be coming together with local partner Airedale Voluntary Drug and Alcohol Agency (Project 6), in a merger that will enhance service delivery in both Keighley and Sheffield, provide opportunities to develop new and innovative services for people in recovery, families in crisis and those with multiple, complex needs and increase the charities’ financial strength. The merger is planned to take place in October, with business as usual for learners, service users, partners and stakeholders during and following the transition. The successful candidate will therefore be employed by the merged charity, under the Project 6 umbrella.
