We are recruiting a Peer Engagement Worker to join our new Haringey Peer Led project. The post is suited to someone with lived experience, ideally from Haringey who has good stability and self management.
The aim of the post is to co-facilitate the Pavilion community project through active co-production with Strategic Co-production Group (SCG) and peer volunteers to develop and deliver a range of peer led activities including the café. You will be seeking to improve community connection, purposeful activity and personal development for service users and people leaving treatment. Also you will recruit volunteers with various lived experiences and skills and to ensure those peer volunteers are supported in a way that enables safe practice.
This post is aimed at someone who has lived experience of using substance misuse services, preferably in Haringey. We would like to recruit someone who can fulfil the Job requirements competently from day one. However, we are willing to consider someone with less experience and willing to be trained during the probationary period and paid at the Inspirit trainee rate during that time.
The post is for 14 hours a week, although you may be able to work flexibly, this role requires physical presence in the building twice a week in negotiation with other staff. You will be expected to attend team meetings and group supervision which may be online. You will need some knowledge of both safeguarding and risk assessment.
Closing date for applications are 10am 17th September
Interviews are on 21st September
