No two days are the same and we treat every person who comes into our service as an individual, so being flexible, curious and a good listener are key.
You’ll have to record information about what you do, so enjoying a bit of paperwork and attention to detail is important. But most of the time you’ll be enjoying working with people from all backgrounds, making a difference to their lives.
This is what a member of staff wrote about doing the post :
I loved the job. A tremendous feeling of job satisfaction when you see people come together, share personal experiences, hold each other accountable You cannot buy experience like that see people grow, and feel better about themselves from very low confidence to giving a presentation to the group.
I loved the concept of the psycho educational aspect of recovery, through work and fun to being heard and believed in.
I saw people start to believe in themselves and make positive changes in their life such as volunteering etc
