Recovery Assistant – SLC (OVERNIGHT SHIFTS)

Location: Salt Lake City


**Due to licensing and supervisory requirements, this position is open to FEMALE applicants only.***

Have you been ever considered going into social work, women’s services, or other non-profit service? We are looking for either a part-time (up to 28 hours per week) or full-time (between 30 and 38 hours per week) Recovery Assistant for our OVERNIGHT/GRAVE shifts at our SALT LAKE CITY campuses. The Recovery Assistant position is a terrific option for women looking for a second job, for those who are at school (plenty of time for homework during overnight shifts), and/or for those looking for anything from a little extra money all the way up to a new career! These positions can be very flexible in scheduling to fit your lifestyle. While we do not split shifts, you can virtually pick your own weekly schedule with a combination of as many overnight shifts per week as you want/need. Plus, we pay an extra dollar per hour for overnight shifts.

We have shifts available each day of the week (including Saturday and Sunday) from 10:30pm – 8:30am.

You will learn firsthand about women’s treatment, helping people grow in a therapeutic community, reunifying mothers and children, and most importantly—about your own strengths and challenges.
