Role

Overview

If you want to help other people change their lives, we'd love to have you on the team. It’s a great opportunity for you to support and inspire other people while gaining new skills and experience. We welcome people from all backgrounds and walks of life, and we’re grateful to everyone who makes up our charity.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our Edinburgh Recovery Services. Having recently been awarded further funding to support taking forward the Scottish Government MAT Standards, we now have a Support Worker vacancy in our Edinburgh Drug & Alcohol services.

We are looking for motivated and caring candidates, with knowledge and experience of supporting individuals affected by drug or alcohol use. We currently have peripatetic vacancies in three Recovery Hubs and a new central clinic, based across South East, South West and North West Edinburgh. We work in partnership with our colleagues in Health and Social Care providing harm reduction and psychosocial interventions to enable individuals to move towards recovery.

Responsibilities

At Change Grow Live, equality, diversity and inclusion means building a workforce that's representative of the communities we serve.

We know the importance of a good work-life balance and managing work alongside other commitments, needs and interests. We are committed to offering part-time and flexible working arrangements wherever possible.

When you join us, you will become part of a charity that is working to become a sector leader for equality, diversity and inclusion practice. You will make a genuine contribution to the quality of the services we provide.

As a member of staff at Change Grow Live you'll start with 25 days annual leave. This will increase by 1 day each year to a maximum of 30 days. You can also take an hour out of work each week to do something that improves your wellbeing or personal development. We are a Living Wage Employer. That means we pay at least the real Living Wage to all of our staff.

This is what one of our Recovery Co-ordinators had to say “I like the team spirit, that we all bring something different and we always put the people who use our service first”.

Our values are to be compassionate, open and bold. If this sounds like you we’d love to hear from you.
