Peer Recovery Worker

  • Part time
  • Sessional
  • Falkirk
  • Closing 23rd April 2019

  • Advertised from 5th April 2019
  • 12 hours per week. £9.00 per hour.


Cyrenians delivers a range of services within the Falkirk area which support people to address barriers to accessing services, employment, volunteering opportunities and/or support. We also have an established peer mentoring project for people with experience of the criminal justice system.

Cyrenians Peer Recovery Service in Falkirk is a 12 month pilot project that will provide activities for people who are recovering from addiction within the Falkirk area. A peer led approach works on the basis that someone who has been through it themselves is motivated by positive, caring reasons – they have been there and they know how challenging it can be.

We are seeking two part time workers with lived experience of a successful recovery from addiction, to take this exciting project forward.

You will be committed to the concept of recovery and the development of recovery communities. You should also have excellent interpersonal skills, be a team player, and be able to demonstrate Cyrenians values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.
