The Role

We are recruiting for a Senior Drug and Alcohol Practitioner to join DHI in South Gloucestershire to support students of the University of the West of England (UWE). This exciting, varied and rewarding role offers opportunities for creativity and innovation and is the result of a successful pilot which was the first of its kind in the country.
