Job role:

An exciting opportunity has arisen to be a part of the Hackney Recovery Service (HRS); we are seeking to recruit a Criminal Justice Recovery Practitioner. Your role will be to engage, case manage and deliver recovery-orientated interventions to service users in a range of settings.

The successful candidate must be enthusiastic, committed, hardworking and highly motivated and have experience of working with substance misuse and related health and wellbeing issues in a care-planned way.  They should have a good understanding of substance misuse, offending and safeguarding interventions and best practice. 

An empathic and non-judgmental approach is imperative, as this role involves working with a wide range of challenging issues and behaviours and many difficult to engage clients.

This role is dependent upon the successful applicant obtaining Metropolitan Police clearance and Prison clearance.

WDP is a recovery focused organisation. Our staff and volunteers are committed to helping our service users to improve their health and wellbeing, and to become free from dependency.

WDP is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. All post holders are subject to a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service check.
