Job role:

We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced drug and alcohol practitioner to join our fully integrated service in the exciting London Borough of Hackney. Working as part of the Hackney Recovery Service (HRS), the post holder will work closely with our sub-contractors St Mungo’s and CNWL to deliver end to end case management with the aim of assisting service users to address their substance misuse and work towards recovery.

This exciting role will offer the successful candidates the chance to make a lasting difference to the lives of our clients and be part of an integrated service delivery model within the borough.

Experience of working within substance misuse or related Health and Social Care setting is essential. The successful candidates must be committed, resourceful and highly motivated to engage service users within treatment services and promote Recovery through their daily practice. This role will require the post holder to assess the needs of service users, deliver effective interventions, complete detailed reports, and work closely with our clinical and reintegration team.

An empathic and non-judgmental approach is imperative, as this role involves working with a wide range of challenging issues and behaviours, and many difficult to engage clients. Good time management and team working skills are essential in this fast paced service.

We are seeking to appoint an individual who can also bring WDP’s core values to the role:

1.           Entrepreneurial – you will be driven and bring innovative ideas to help achieve this

2.           In partnership – you will be a team player and liaise effectively with other WDP staff and partner organisations

3.           Strong belief in service users – you will be ambitious for those we help and this will come across strongly in your practice with service users

4.           Community focussed – you will provide and shape services that serve the whole community

WDP is recovery focused organisation. Our staff and volunteers are committed to helping our service users to improve their health and wellbeing, and to become free from dependency.

WDP is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. All post holders are subject to a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service check.
