Are you looking for an exciting new challenge?

We have two exciting full time opportunities to come and join the Matthew Project as Recovery Workers. You will support people in the community delivering 1:1 and group work at offices of the Matthew Project, as well as partner offices and other venues. This will be centred in either Great Yarmouth or King’s Lynn and Thetford.

The ability to travel is essential. Please specify in your application which area you would be interested in working in.  

You will support people in their recovery as part of an intensive whole system approach to tackling drug misuse in areas across Norfolk. The project will build on existing work and will look to expand multi-agency partnership working in the local areas to drive sustained health and crime related outcomes.  The overall aims of the project:

  • A reduction in the rate of drug related deaths in Norfolk
  • A reduction in the level of drug related offending in Norfolk

You will fulfil a key role in a multi-agency team working collaboratively alongside colleagues from statutory and VCSE to engage people to make demonstrable changes through to recovery. 

The Matthew Project is a value driven charity working across East Anglia giving help and hope through programmes with adults, young people and communities affected by drugs and alcohol. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, of any faith or none.

The role will require the successful candidate to undertake an enhanced DBS check prior to starting employment.
