We are seeking to recruit an exceptional and enthusiastic individual to join our team.  The Barnet Recovery Centre plays a vital role in engaging service users and furthering them through their individual recovery journey by offering a range of high quality treatment interventions.  As a Criminal Justice Recovery Practitioner your role will be to engage, case manage and deliver recovery-orientated treatment to our service users who are actively involved in the criminal justice system.  The successful candidate must be committed, hardworking and highly motivated, and have experience of working with substance misuse and related health and wellbeing issues in a care-planned way.

It is also desired that the successful candidate has a valid driving licence and access to a car/transport.
