Right now, Holder House - Richmond Fellowship’s mental health registered care home in Abingdon - is looking for a Recovery Worker committed to putting the people who use our services at the heart of everything we do.
We are looking to provide someone with your enthusiasm and compassion, the perfect environment to utilise your skills to ensure our residents are involved in the decisions that affect their lives.
Join our team as a Recovery Worker
You’ll support and inspire your key-clients to lead their own recovery. You’ll co-produce a support plan that will address their specific needs, see them achieve their goals and aspirations and develop domestic and finance management life skills. You’ll motivate people to access a range of work, leisure or educational opportunities to achieve greater independence. You’ll give people access to a full range of services by liaising with mental health teams, GP surgeries, the local council and charities etc. You’ll also develop your leadership skills by taking on lead areas. Other aspects of the job include entering accurate case notes on our IT system, leading group activities, dispensing medication and cooking house meals with residents.
The right personal qualities are essential. You’re happy working both independently and as a valued member of our team, work well under pressure and know how to connect with people at all levels. Oh and you’re caring, consistent, flexible, creative and, like us, you are keen to break down the stigma of mental health.
In return, expect some excellent benefits:
- 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays
- Contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme and childcare vouchers
- Training and development opportunities
The full-time pay for this post is circa £23,500 based on on-call payments and the post holder working six sleep-in shifts per month.
So get inspired and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career today.
