Since 1969 Cranstoun has been making life better for those affected by alcohol and drugs. Our skilled and compassionate people work closely with services users and their families to change and save lives. We combine proven expertise in treatment and recovery with innovative approaches and actively involve those we help in improving the design of the services we provide.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Apprentice Engagement & Recovery Worker to join the team at our Pavilions service. As a Cranstoun Apprentice, you will develop the skills, experience and qualifications to enable you to embark on a career within the substance misuse field. Our Apprenticeship Scheme is entirely work-based; you won’t get stuck learning in a classroom.
Working as part of a team, you will provide individual and group support to service users to empower individuals to achieve recovery. You will deliver one to one support; assist in the delivery of group work and workshops; and contribute to outreach provision.
To become a Cranstoun Apprentice, you will need to demonstrate Cranstoun’s core values; Ambition, Compassion, Innovation and Integrity. Experience of working or volunteering in a substance misuse service is desirable.
In return for your dedication and enthusiasm, you will be rewarded by excellent terms and conditions and employee benefits, and you will work towards a nationally recognised qualification in Health & Social Care (Intermediate or Advanced, dependant on skills assessment).
The promotion of visible recovery is a core part of Cranstoun’s services; applications to become an Apprentice are encouraged from individuals with previous experience of substance misuse and treatment services.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept CVs.
