You will be passionate and enthusiastic about recovery. If in recovery, we are looking for you to have had a minimum of two years stability from substance use or addictive behaviours. You will have a recognised professional qualification or training award in social care or health care or community work or counselling or addiction studies to a minimum SVQ level 3 or equivalent, you will have a good understanding of the impact that substance use can have on individuals, families and communities and you will be familiar with what works to promote and sustain recovery.
