Charity People are seeking a Recovery Practitioner who is skilled and experienced in working with people who have issues surrounding homelessness and/or substance misuse.

The successful candidate will work in a new residential setting for a charitable organisation based in Kingston, working with a focus on several people who reside there who have experienced homelessness and issues around drugs and alcohol. Your role will be to deliver a strength-based structured day programme for the residents using a range of therapeutically diverse approaches. The aim is to facilitate person-centred health and wellbeing interventions to help each resident in their drug and alcohol recovery and any mental health needs.

You will manage a small caseload as the Enhanced Recovery Practitioner, and will carry out assessments, SMART support planning and one to one sessions tailored around the individual needs of the residents. Naturally, you will work to ensure risk management, health and safety and safeguarding issues are taken care of, and work within best practice of record keeping.

This is a part time job, working over three days per week and it is paying £15.33 per hour, plus £1.85 holiday pay per hour. This is a temporary role, to run for around three months, and if all is going well this role could well become permanent.

If you are available for this role, can travel in to Kingston three days per week and are experienced in working with vulnerable people who have experienced homelessness or substance misuse, then please do reach out to Zelda Leader at Charity People for further information about this position.
