Job Description

Due to very high demand, we are actively recruiting experienced Recovery Support Workers to cover shifts in Post-16's Supported Living, Mental Health Units, Homeless Hostels, and Drug and Alcohol Recovery Units in the West Sussex area, including but not limited to Chichester, Bognor Regis, Worthing, Horsham, Crawley, and surrounding areas.

We offer Recovery Support Worker shifts supporting vulnerable young people and those recovering from drug and alcohol addictions in various settings throughout West Sussex. Shifts available include early mornings, late evenings, long days, sleep-ins, and waking nights. Shifts can be continuous within a single project for consistency or across different projects for greater flexibility and variety. Our current Recovery Support Workers value the ability to work as much or as little as they like, fitting work around their lifestyle and other commitments, or working for us as their main source of income.

We are looking for individuals with experience in addictions recovery units or in supporting young people and adults with similar backgrounds.

Ideal candidates will possess the skills and mindset necessary for working with young people and adults who have faced traumatic issues. As a Recovery Support Worker, you will be emotionally resilient, patient, and empathetic, with strong communication skills and the ability to maintain safe working boundaries. These young people and adults may sometimes display challenging and unpredictable behaviours.

If this sounds like you and a career you would be interested in, we would love to hear from you!

Benefits of working with us include:

  • Excellent hourly rates of pay
  • Weekly pay via BACS
  • Holiday pay earned separately from the Support Worker hourly rate
  • Enhanced Child and Adult Workforce DBS provided*
  • Mandatory training and certificates provided for personal use*
  • Optional workplace pension*
  • Friendly and experienced Health & Social Care Consultants to help and support you, including:
  • Detailed information about the projects provided before your first shift at each location
  • Additional supervised support and training provided within projects when required or requested
  • Continuous encouragement of up-skilling
  • 24/7 contact available in emergencies
