The role is also ideal for those with good listening and leadership skills, as well as those with an organised, flexible approach to work and excellent interpersonal communication skills.

Successful applicants must be willing and able to help clients with their day-to-day tasks, such as assisting with finances, shopping and days out. They should also have a keen interest in counselling those with drug and alcohol problems and attending meetings and courses with them if necessary.
