The Role

Together is an amazing place to work. And it’s not just because we’re one of the UK’s oldest and most respected mental health charities. It’s because we put the people who use our services at the heart of everything we do – supporting and enabling them to take control of their lives and make a positive contribution to the community.

Together for Mental Wellbeing is a national charity working alongside people with mental health issues on their journey towards independent and fulfilling lives. The individuals who use our services are at the heart of everything we do. They influence and shape the support they receive from us, and the way our services are run. Our vision is a world where each individual can play their part in breaking down the barriers that exist through ignorance and lack of understanding, and where everyone can live their life without prejudice.

Norfolk County Council set out to transform the provision of mental health services across Norfolk. Together for Mental Wellbeing was successful in gaining the contract to provide a combined supported living, outreach and floating support service and will be delivering this in partnership with Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind, St Martins, West Norfolk Mind and Great Yarmouth & Waveney Mind across Norfolk.

We are looking for enthusiastic, dedicated and outcome focused Recovery Workers to join our successful team. The role will require you to work with people who maybe in recovery from drug and or alcohol dependence, to enable them to build their own recovery with their mental health to live successfully I the community.

The role will involve engagement, assessments of person’s needs, case management and motivational interventions. The post-holder will deliver one to one support and structured groups.

In return for hard work, professionalism, dedication and a passion for delivering recovery focused support, we offer excellent terms and conditions and the support you will need to really make a difference to someone in their recovery.
