Role

Service: North East Edinburgh Recovery Services

Could you help us save lives?

Do you have a passion for helping vulnerable people enjoy as much fulfilment as they can and feel included in their community? If compassion, care and inclusiveness are an important part of who you are, our opportunities to work away from the routine in a demanding, challenging but emotionally rewarding role could be for you.

Our Turning Point Scotland Services in Edinburgh are looking for people like you to help provide individualised support to adults with a wide range of needs, either on an individual 1:1 basis or alongside others and as part of a team.

The North East Edinburgh Recovery Hub

The team are based across multiple sites - Leith, Craigmillar and the City Centre. We also offer assertive outreach and home visits in the local community.

The recovery hubs are a partnership of NHS, Social Work, Police, Housing and other third sector agencies such as counselling services, CHAI, VOCAL and Advocard.

We offer a range of individual and group harm reduction, stabilisation and recovery focused interventions.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about harm reduction and recovery! Ideally, you have experience of supporting people who use alcohol and other drugs, but we are also interested in hearing from candidates who have lived experience and or worked in mental health, homelessness, and other social care sectors.

The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.

We believe having the right values of respect, compassion, inclusion and integrity is all you need to join our team! We would offer you full support in completing your application.

As a Senior Relief Worker, you will work with individuals who have a wide range of support needs, providing them with practical and emotional support and encouraging them to achieve their own personal outcomes in all aspects of their daily lives e.g. keeping safe, meaningful activities, community involvement, physical health, relationships, emotional health and wellbeing.
