Lincolnshire Services Team Leader

Contract Type: Permanent

Location: Lincoln, LN1 1XG (travel will be required between operational sites)

Hours: 37 hours per week (Full Time) Monday to Friday (to include evenings and the possibility of Saturdays as dictated by the requirements of the service as it develops)

Salary: up to £27,347 per annum

Double Impact Lincolnshire delivers services to establish and promote recovery from drug and alcohol dependence.  Our aim is to connect with service users from across Lincolnshire to deliver a person centred recovery service and high quality accredited learning packages.  We provide pathways and opportunities for individuals to progress through individual Personal Development Plans into learning, volunteering, work readiness and ultimately employment.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone to bring their passion and enthusiasm for our service and our learners to our existing team.

With support and direction from the Double Impact Academy Manager, the Lincolnshire Services Team Leader will have responsibility for the day to day management and coordination of our Lincolnshire Services.

The post holder will manage, supervise and support a small staff team to deliver both the Recovery Service and our Academy accredited learning programme.  This will involve supporting and managing staff through caseload reviews and management supervision and coordinating  our Level 1 and Level 2 accredited learning programmes to ensure high standards are delivered and quality and performance standards are met and maintained.   This will also involve an element of data collection and reporting in line with our contractual requirements.

The Recovery and Academy Services are dynamic, the post holder will therefore be required to have a good knowledge of the recovery process from addiction, including an understanding of the barriers and challenges that may prevent individuals from accessing both recovery and learning opportunities.   The Team Leader must also have an understanding of education, training and employability processes and systems (training where necessary will be provided) coupled with an understanding and appreciation of the importance of quality assurance across all parts of the service.

The Team Leader is also the safeguarding lead for the service.

As with all our staff, there is an expectation that the Team Leader will champion Recovery and be supportive in growing the profile of Recovery and Recovery Communities in Lincolnshire.
