Job role:

This is an exciting opportunity for individuals with an interest in the disciplines of substance misuse, street outreach and academic research.

As part of a joint research project with London South Bank University (LSBU), WDP will be delivering outreach services across the London Borough of Redbridge. 

The post-holder will be working closely with Outreach colleagues, academic partners from London South Bank University, and community services in Redbridge, including WDP’s R3 Recovery service in Redbridge.

Together with partners, you will make a vital contribution not just to the local street population but also to the wider evidence base.  This is an excellent opportunity for someone who has an interest in academic research, developing effective practice and advancing their skills within the sector.

We are seeking to appoint an individual who can also bring WDP’s core values to the role:

1. Entrepreneurial – you will be driven and bring innovative ideas to help achieve this.

2. In partnership – you will be a team player and liaise effectively with other WDP staff and partner organisations

3. Strong belief in service users – you will be ambitious for those we help and this will come across strongly in your practice with service users

4. Community focussed – you will provide and shape services that serve the whole community 

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.
