The Matthew Project empowers young people and adults to overcome drugs, alcohol, and mental health issues so they can live their lives more fully, including specialist services for both family members impacted by others’ substance misuse and for veterans. Our people are committed to making a difference to others' lives through giving hope and providing professional, creative, and compassionate support. In addition to our frontline practitioner roles, we have administration and support function roles.


Our values are at the heart of our work, they shape the way we support and care for our employees.  Our values and ethos originate from a Christian perspective, and we seek to employ people who respect and align with those values, whether from a position of faith or not.


We welcome people from all backgrounds and those with “lived experience” and we ask applicants to reflect this on their application forms.  We are dedicated to equality, diversity, and inclusivity and we ask all applicants to complete our online EDI Monitoring Form.  We do not use this information to shortlist or select candidates. Please click here to access the form.


We ensure job vacancy adverts are accessible to a wide audience by using a variety of advertising platforms.  By offering information in different formats and accepting applications via alternative methods, we hope to avoid unconsciously disadvantaging some sections of the potential workforce.


Therefore, if you are unable to apply for any of our vacancies online or need information or an application form in a different format, please contact our HR department (Tel: 01603 626 123 or Email: [email protected]). 


Applicants are selected for interview based solely on their work experience and qualifications which correspond with the job description and person specification attached to the job vacancy advert.  The selection process is carried out by the hiring manager without knowledge of any personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address). 


If you are offered an interview, we will ask you if you require specific arrangements to be made for your interview such as access or support.


We offer a variety of benefits, including:


  • Generous holiday allowance (starting at 27 days plus bank holidays).

  • Enhanced sick pay.

  • Employer pension contribution. 

  • Life assurance.

  • An employee assistance programme with access to counselling support.

  • Training opportunities.

  • Hybrid working.


Please note that all our frontline practitioner roles will require an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check prior to employment. Support roles will usually require a basic DBS check. Please click here to read our Recruiting Ex-Offenders & DBS Checking Policy.
