When you choose to join us, you’re choosing more than just a job… you’re choosing to make a difference


We’re recruiting for caring and compassionate team members who want to make a difference in the lives of the 85,000-plus people we support each year.

We believe that everyone should have a fair chance in life and we deliver programmes and services across the country that help people overcome barriers. In addition to being one of England’s drug and alcohol treatment providers, we also offer education, training and skills programmes to help people get back into work, as well as providing housing and support for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
