We have been very fortunate to have secured funding to help develop SMART Recovery peer meetings across North Wales and now urgently seeking to employ a Peer Community Development Worker to co-ordinate this project on a full-time, temporary basis.

We are looking for an experienced Facilitator who can demonstrate best practice within a SMART meeting, is passionate about the SMART Recovery Programme, has excellent organisational skills and able to manage their own time.  Experience in delivering face to face training and working with volunteers would also be desirable.

Your role will involve initiating new Peer-led SMART Recovery meetings by identifying suitable individuals to undertake the SMART Recovery Facilitator training, assisting with the delivery of face to face training and supporting new Facilitators to set up their meetings and develop appropriate connections.

Working alongside the National Co-ordinator for Wales you will also be raising awareness of the programme and developing networks with service providers.

Although you will be home-based it is expected that a large amount of your time will be spent out in the communities of North Wales, therefore preference will be given to those individuals living in or around this area.  Agreed expenses, including mileage will be reimbursed, laptop and mobile phone will be provided.
