In this varied and fulfilling role where no two days are ever the same, you will:
 
- Provide support and assistance to service users
- Provide reactive and responsive support to clients at the point of crisis or emergency
- Ensure safe, effective communication of individuals’ information internally and externally
- Contribute to safeguarding and the development of supportive environments
- Develop excellent relationships with colleagues, clients, volunteers and external agencies

- An awareness of Health and Safety issues
- An understanding of confidentiality issues
- A good standard of education
- A good standard of literacy and numeracy
- Proficient IT skills including Office
- A full, valid driving licence and access to a vehicle
 
Knowledge of the alcohol and/or substance use treatment system and criminal justice system in Cornwall would be desirable. An understanding of a recovery-oriented approach to support delivery would also be advantageous, as would experience of conducting needs and risk assessments.
 
A qualification in a relevant field would be equally beneficial.
