Cranstoun and Swanswell, two national charities providing support to people affected by addiction and other life challenges, merged in December 2016 to form the Cranstoun Group.  The two charities have a shared vision to save, change and rebuild lives which makes this an exciting partnership with a strong future.


Our Recovery Workers are responsible for co-ordinating the treatment of service users, helping them to deal with their substance misuse so that they can change their lives and be happy.


We’re looking for talented and motivated people to work with our service users in West Berkshire. If you’re someone who enjoys problem solving to help people to change their lives for the better, this role’s right for you. The most important thing you’ll bring to this role is your desire and ability to make a positive difference to people’s lives.


You’ll need to be able to work with service users holistically, helping them to access other services that can help with the practical problems they may be facing as a result of their substance misuse (e.g. housing, financial, healthcare etc).


This role will require you to regularly travel to appointments in the community and other Swanswell offices, so a current driving license and own transport would be an advantage.  Hours to be worked Monday to Friday with a late shift working Mondays, 11:30 am to 19:30 pm every other Monday.
