Work With Us

If you want to improve the lives of people affected by drug and/or alcohol misuse, ADS is the charity for you.  For over 40 years we have been helping individuals and families cope with the challenges of addiction. Every member of our staff is committed to making a real and positive change in the lives of people with drug and alcohol addictions and you could be one of them. See our vacancies below to find a role that fits your skills.



ADS are currently looking to add experienced Administrators, Support Workers and Recovery Practitioners, to our register of bank staff.  We are looking to expand our register in various locations around North and Central England.  The roles will involve working various hours on an ad hoc basis including evenings, nights and weekends (residential service only as we operate a 24/7 service).

If you feel you want to apply please e-mail and we can send you a job description along with an application form for the role you wish to apply.


Whether you  wish to give something back to the community or gain new skills to build up your CV, feel free to get in touch regarding any volunteering possibilities that may be available across our services. We have a number of volunteers taking a variety of roles within ADS including Administrators, Mentors and Group Co-facilitators.

If you wish to join our volunteer register please e-mail and we can provide you with the details of the appropriate Volunteer Co-ordinator with whom you can discuss the volunteering opportunities available at a service within your area.
