Working closely with the Service Manager, you will supervise a team of staff, assist in caseload management and provide crucial day-to-day management support for our Recovery Workers.

We have a busy office base staffed by Recovery Workers, Recovery Champions and Volunteers but much of our work is carried out in the local communities that we serve.

An SVQ Level 3 in Adult Social Care is required as a minimum qualification.

The successful candidate will be required to deliver services within the community so a driving license is essential.
