Are you ex-forces and looking for a challenging and rewarding role?

Are you passionate about recovery from substance misuse?

We have an exciting opportunity for a full-time post working with serving Armed Forces personnel, Veterans, Reservists and their families who have substance misuse issues and PTSD. You will work with individuals, undertaking referrals and assessments, managing a caseload, completing recovery care plans, and providing information, advice and needle exchange to substance users.

A key responsibility of the role will be to collect data, statistics and client case stories to support the future funding of the service; therefore, you must be highly organised, with good administrative and report writing skills.

The role is home based with an office available in Colchester when needed. It will involve extensive travel across Essex, therefore the ability to drive and access to a car is essential. Evening work may sometimes be necessary depending on the needs of the clients.

This post is restricted to veterans of the Armed Forces and is funded by The Royal British Legion. This contract is funded until the end of January 2021 with the likelihood of extension.

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 have a vision to reach every part of the community in the most creative, effective and efficient ways. Through our varied services, young people and adults receive professional advice, information, counselling, support, care and education.
