BRIO – Building Recovery Inward and Outward

BRIO is a Probation funded programme within SAOL that works with women who have addiction and criminality as part of their story. BRIO builds recovery inwards and outwards: inner healing reinforced by the generosity of outward giving. In this case, outward giving occurs in group training and then peer work. BRIO’s ‘wounded healers’ are women who are either drug free, stable or working on their stability; they are also women who have a relationship with the Probation Service and are either currently on probation (or recently completed it), have lately left prison or are in danger of going to (or returning to) prison in the near future.

We require a full-time, dynamic, creative and forward-thinking project worker to join the SAOL team and to particularly work with the BRIO programme. 

Essential Requirements

·        Minimum qualification:  Level 7 degree qualification in Addiction Studies or Level 8 in a related field

·        A minimum of 3 years’ full time, paid experience in a project worker role relevant to the post. 

If your qualification is not specifically in addiction then you must be able to show that you have relevant experience working in an addiction specific role

(Please note that a college placement will be recorded as insufficient experience for this role). 

·        Experience of working in a Community/Voluntary Sector.

·        Excellent group work and computer/administration skills.
