The Role

The Enhanced Rehabilitation Outreach Service (EROS) is looking for an enthusiastic and proactive STaR worker to join our Team

EROS uses evidence based interventions to support people who present a higher risk of relapse or deterioration when transitioning at any point within the Rehabilitation Care Pathway. The team will have strong links with the Community Placement Service, Community Housing and Supported Living providers and the in-patient Rehabilitation service, as well as liaising closely with the person’s community care co-ordinator to ensure that all transfers enable people using our services to experience smooth transitions in their care, without unnecessary delays.

The team is made up of Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Social Work, Psychiatrists, and Recovery Support Staff. Through this Multi-Disciplinary Team we aim to support Service Users to move into the most independent placements possible by providing intensive support at the points of transition. The rehabilitation service will be implementing outcome measures across the rehabilitation pathway to evidence and celebrate service user and service progress.


The successful applicant will be someone who is passionate about empowering people to live independently, lead meaningful lives, engage with their local community and who maintains hope and optimism for every individual using the service.

The team will use a recovery focused approach, through co-produced plans of care and maintaining hope and optimism for individuals in their recovery journey. The team will assist people to build resilience and improve their wellbeing, and will tailor interventions to meet individual cultural and social needs. As a STaR worker you will be working directly with service users on their recovery goals in both their homes and in the community. In return we provide supervision and an evolving and dynamic team


The EROS team is a county-wide service and therefore car driving and ability to drive distances across the county is required unless you have a disability (as defined by the Equality Act 2010) which prevents you from driving.
