We’re looking for two LGBT recovery workers for our busy drug and alcohol recovery partnership in the City of London and Hackney. The postholder will be experienced in supporting LGBT people with complex drug and alcohol issues, including gay and bisexual men engaged in chemsex.

You will be delivering one to one and group treatment interventions to a caseload of clients from the City and Hackney Partnership building in Mare Street E8, our own building in Kings Cross, at satellite venues across the City of London and Hackney, and online.

The City and Hackney Recovery Service is a partnership between Turning Point, Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest, and London Friend’s Antidote service.
