Hartlepool is a vibrant and energetic town with growing prospects. As an authority we want to make Hartlepool the best it possibly can be and want dedicated, driven and committed staff to help us achieve that.
Are you passionate about making a difference? This is a really exciting time for Hartlepool substance misuse services. We have recently created an integrated substance misuse service, which includes our clinical service provided by an external partner and our ‘in-house’ care co-ordination service.
If you are successful you will be supporting the Head of Service in both developing and delivering this newly formed service at the beginning of its journey, in order to ensure that we can improve the lives of people in Hartlepool.
As a key member of the team, you will be responsible for the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of planned care for a defined caseload, providing support in your role as a care coordinator to access services in order to meet individual’s needs/develop strengths, which both reduce harm and support meaningful and sustained recovery.
As care coordinator, you will have responsibility for caseload management of service users who may or may not have a need for medically assisted recovery and for delivering evidenced based individual and group interventions including psycho-social interventions, which not only supports and motivates service users along a recovery pathway, but which delivers positive outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
You will be part of a hard working, enthusiastic, committed and supportive team.
We are committed to providing high quality services and offer an excellent working environment valuing supervision, training and opportunities for professional development.
Applicants should have experience of working with vulnerable individuals with multiple needs and possess a Diploma/BTEC/NVQ3 or equivalent qualification in substance misuse, psychology, counselling, social work or health and social care.
