Cranstoun is an independent charity and leading provider of specialist treatment, harm reduction and recovery services to those affected by drug and alcohol use. Ambition, collaboration, compassion, creativity and respect are our values and we are passionate about adopting a person-centred approach to ensure people feel safe and empowered to live healthier and safer lives. This is an exciting opportunity to become a part of our high performing psychosocial drug and alcohol services.

Our skilled and compassionate people work closely with services users to give them the tools to create positive and lasting change. We combine proven expertise in treatment and recovery with innovative approaches and actively involve those we help in improving the design of the services we provide.

You will be based in our psychosocial drug and alcohol team in HMP Birmingham working with adult males (over 18 years old). As the trainee programme progresses, you will learn the skillset required to be responsible for supporting the delivery of a range of elements of our substance use work, including case management, assessments, care planning, the delivery of one-to-one interventions to include harm reduction and motivational work, group work, and engagement support as well as other associated duties. As part of the trainee role, you will have dedicated study time to undertake the Level 3 apprenticeship qualification and Diploma for Lead Adult Care.

The trainee role is expected to last for a period of around 18 months depending on qualification completion and competency sign off. Trainees who successfully complete the qualification and internal programme will be invited to apply for a permanent Key Worker within the organisation as they become available.

These roles within this service are subject to enhanced DBS checks and Prison vetting clearance and meet eligibility requirements for enrolment onto the apprenticeship qualification.
