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’.
So what is your objective?
You will be based at HMP Leyhill (a category D 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 have a caseload, and 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 education and employment. You must be unfazed working within a prison environment, and unfazed when it comes to working with challenging clients e.g. sex offenders.
There are a range of targets to meet, so you need to be able to work through these.
Interested in applying?
Ideally you have/have 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 services sector background i.e. Employment Advisor, Employment Consultant, Job Coach.
Recent Criminology/Criminal Studies grad?
This is also a great opportunity for Criminology/Criminal studies graduates. This is a hugely rewarding role, and you will be making a huge difference in people’s lives. You must have a sound knowledge of the benefits system, able to work with multi-agencies, unfazed working within a custody setting, and be able to manage your own diary.
