Description

Are you a committed, organised and highly motivated candidate, with a good understanding of the challenges affecting people with substance misuse and related health and wellbeing issues?

The Senior Harm Reduction Practitioner will work from the service site and, at times, across the local community, undertaking a wide range of promotion and development of partnerships to make our service more accessible.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving service and help build an ever larger network of partnerships to highlight harm reduction and health promotion across the borough. We will be looking for the successful applicant to co-ordinate across those partnerships focussing on key areas such as reducing alcohol related harm, safer injecting practices and smoking cessation; they will have good knowledge of these areas.

The successful applicant will line manage a team delivering a variety of health orientated interventions, encouraging development and learning both within the team and also our community partners.

Via Harrow is a fully integrated substance misuse service, providing clinical and psychosocial interventions from a main treatment hub in Harrow and from a range of satellite services in the borough. The team actively promotes recovery and work with individuals that are directly and indirectly affected by substance misuse, working with the local community to improve the health, wellbeing and functioning of Harrow residents, irrespective of circumstance.
