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 Hewell (a category B, and C men’s prison) , 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 multi-disciplinary 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 – these are mainly focused on holistic approaches such as soft skills looking at goal setting, motivation progress, conflict resolution, anger management, and signposting. You must be confident in working within a prison environment, and unfazed when it comes to working with challenging clients e.g. sex offenders.
To apply for this role:
This is a hugely rewarding role, and you will be making a huge difference in people’s lives.
