want to help improve lives?
we are with you

Director of Services
Candidate information


I’m delighted that you’re interested in joining With You. We support people across the UK experiencing issues with drugs, alcohol and mental health, and we do this in a way that understands that everyone is different, and that the people we help all have their own goals.

This year has been challenging for everyone, but for us the pandemic has also shown that it is possible to work in very different ways and continue to help more people. A key part of our strategy is about transforming our organisation, and we have responded to 2020 by embedding new, more flexible and responsive ways of working, better use of digital, and building a strong, open culture. And it goes without saying that this theme of continuous improvement underpins our whole philosophy of operational service delivery.

When Professor Dame Carol Black’s Review on Drugs was published in early 2020, just before lockdown, her stark findings about the structural challenges faced by our sector corroborated our own perspectives. There is much we can do – and are doing – to design and deliver services more effectively, which in turn drives better and more lasting outcomes. The better we are at our job, the more people will be able to recover and make the changes they want in their lives.

If you take up one of these two key roles, you’ll be a vital regional leader as we work to radically improve drug, alcohol and mental health support. For the right person, it’s a career-defining opportunity to make a difference not just to our organisation, but also to the people we help, and the many people across the UK that are going without support. That’s the challenge that motivates all of us, and I hope it attracts you too.

We're a caring, passionate and inclusive organisation where people can thrive, progress and connect with others. We express this in the way we celebrate and promote diversity of all kinds; we will offer flexible working wherever we can, and we are a disability-confident employer. We warmly encourage enquiries and applications from candidates who bring a range of life experiences and backgrounds alongside their professional profile.
