We are really pleased to be recruiting for one of the leading charities that specialises in supporting offenders to help improve their well-being and live a crime free life. Recognised as a great company to work for by both investors in people and ‘best companies’.
You will be working at HMP Bullingdon, which works with long-term prisoners prior to release with the aim of society reintegration. This will involve looking at areas such as housing, health, employment as well as money & budgeting. You will support clients to help them deal with issues that are typically faced through long period of imprisonment such as anxiety , and social exclusion. It is essential that you have the ability to work with multi-agencies, such as Citizens Advice, JCP, housing departments or specialist support agencies that cover areas including employment. You will work with peers from different agencies within a supportive, social environment so you will not be left alone.
There are targets to meet, so you need to be able to work through these. And you must be confident in working within a prison environment.
To apply for this role, it is essential that you have previously had experience of working with offenders/ex-offenders within a support capacity. So you might have done a very similar role before, or perhaps be from an employment background. This is a hugely rewarding role, and you will be making a huge difference in people’s lives. You will also have sound knowledge of the benefit system, able to work with multi-agencies, and manage your own diary.
Interviews will take place on 25th February 2020
