Intensive Recovery Worker – Norwich

Full Time – Maternity cover fixed term for 6 months. Starting salary £19,446.

Closing date: 31/12/2018

Are you interested in mental health? Do want to learn more about how people recover from experiences like depression, anxiety and psychosis? Do you want to help people as they find their feet and rebuild their lives? St Martins are looking for passionate people who want to make a difference.

Working in recovery means supporting people to make sense of their experiences, to identify what gives their life purpose and then to help them rebuild their lives after a period of crisis. You will enjoy fostering creative, meaningful and hopeful connections with people which empower them to focus on what they can do.

We are looking for people with experience or knowledge that could help improve someone’s mental health, their physical health, their social networks and their engagement with specialist services. You do not necessarily need to have experience in the mental health field if you have it in other areas of social care.

In return we will provide you with recovery-focused, trauma-informed training that will prepare you to do the best job possible. You will have the support of a team and line-manager which will include reflective practice and supervision. You will also have the opportunity to develop your skills.

The role will require working flexibly and remotely as part of a geographically-spread team, including daily local travel within the service locality covering Norwich City, and where appropriate, working within wider localities to support the demand and capacity requirements of the Norfolk-wide Integrated Housing and Community Support Service.

If you want to be a part of shaping the future for the better and have the drive to help others to maximise their potential then we would love to hear from you.
