Recovery Worker (Supported Housing) with Richmond Fellowship


Salary: £15,850.00

Terms: Permanent

Location: Stony Stratford

Closing Date: 19 December 2016

Job Description

Do you have experience of working in mental health or a related environment? 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 Richmond Fellowship as a recovery worker.

Recovery Focus is a new group of expert charities with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between them they have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together they believe they can lead the way in evidence-based recovery pathways, tailored to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of their partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a recovery worker to join the team at their Milton Keynes service. Their supported housing scheme provides one to one support, helping people to identify their own goals to empower them to achieve a better, more meaningful lifestyle via their chosen recovery journey. But, it’s only possible with the help of people like you.

Day-to-day, you’ll manage a caseload of residents and give them all the support they need to enable them to participate in community life. You’ll also work with individuals to develop an appropriate personal support plan that addresses their specific needs. Helping them to develop domestic, financial and emotional management and personal life skills to achieve greater independence and self-esteem will be important too. You will also provide move on and resettlement support.  And, when it comes to liaising with statutory and voluntary agencies to give people access to a full range of services, again, they’ll rely on your expertise.

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. What’s more, you have a good understanding of mental health issues and how they affect people. Experience of identifying and coordinating a range of services to meet an individual’s needs and to enable them to engage with community activities is also essential. You will also be willing to participate in a rota which includes sleep-ins.

In return, you can expect some great benefits, including 25 days’ holiday, contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme and childcare vouchers, plus exceptional professional development and training opportunities.

On average in 2016 Richmond Fellowship recovery workers earned £19,990 including sleep ins and on call.
