Job Description

Phoenix Futures are looking for enthusiastic, passionate, and motivated substance use professionals to join our new and innovative service aimed at improving access to drug and alcohol treatment for people who sleep rough in London.

Phoenix have over 50 years’ experience of delivering pioneering services. This provision, part of a newly commissioned Pan-London Substance Misuse Pathway, will combine our considerable expertise in substance use and homelessness. The team will work with people who sleep rough across the capital to identify and address barriers to treatment access, engaging constructively and collaboratively with other agencies and facilitating pathways into services.

The role forms part of a small team delivering a high-quality, outcomes-focused service that improves the experience, quality of life, and life expectancy of people who sleep rough and use substances in London. Successful candidates will have an opportunity to help shape the service and leave a legacy.

Role requirements:

  • Experience of working with people affected by substance use and/or homelessness
  • Capacity to work under pressure and manage time effectively
  • Adaptable, enthusiastic, and empathetic.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a range of people
  • Able to work flexibly, including occasional early, late, or weekend work.

The successful candidate will be required to work effectively with teams across London and proven ability to work collaboratively is a must, as is an ability to travel to sites across the capital (travel expenses will be paid).

We encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. We are committed to creating an equitable and inclusive working environment where everyone is free to be themselves.

If you are interested in being a part of a team that is making a real change, send us your CV and a covering letter (approx. 1 side of A4) telling us why you’re interested and how your experiences and skills make you the right person for the role.

If you wish to discuss this opportunity further, please contact

While this is a fixed term role, we fully expect the contract to be extended. Secondments will be considered

Salary range: (£24,250 – £28,750) plus £3,085.65 LW, £2000 market supplement
