Contract:         Permanent

We’re looking for someone with ambition, enthusiasm and belief in the recovery focussed treatment system to step into the role of Team Leader for Together South Devon. The post will coordinate and develop delivery of the Together integrated drug and alcohol service in South Devon, including prescribing, recovery navigation, family and criminal justice work, whilst ensuring that the service’s key elements are integrated, streamlined, recovery-focused, trauma informed and delivered to a high standard, with appropriate prioritisation of resources

Working as part of a management team leading, managing and developing the service, the post holder will support building a forward looking, dynamic and competent service with a culture of learning and continuous performance improvement and will promote system wide engagement and joint working with other services. You’ll work to effectively manage and support practitioners to ensure that individuals are able to access timely prescribing, psychosocial and recovery interventions when and where they need them in a warm, person-centred and welcoming environment.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for an individual who can demonstrate excellent communication, organisation and time management skills and will be confident managing their own priorities in order to carry a diverse workload with competing demands. You’ll have at least five GCSE’s (or equivalent) and will either hold, or be willing to undertake, a Vocational Level 3 qualification in Health and Social Care. A further qualification in a relevant area such as Nursing, Health and Social Care, Community Development or Psychology, whilst not essential, would be an advantage.

Just as importantly, you’ll have a genuine interest in the understanding of substance misuse problems and a positive recovery focused attitude. You’ll be keen to develop professionally and will demonstrate a high level of integrity and enthusiasm for working within the un-structured direct access ‘front door’ of our service as well as the structured group programmes that we run on a continuous cycle.
