Are you someone who loves to challenge the norm, change things for the better and really make a genuine difference? Then consider a job in probation.
Who are we?
We deliver probation work which means supervising offenders to reduce their re-offending, supporting rehabilitation and protecting the public.
In 2015 our parent company, Interserve, won a bid to deliver 25% of England's offender rehabilitation requirements through five companies and since then we have embarked on a wholesale 'transformation' of probation - changes that stand us apart from other probation providers. Together with our partner agencies we manage and deliver a range of specialist intervention and support services that equip service users to make better choices.
Looking at our successes to date, we have a promising future ahead.
What's involved in the job?
There are many facets to being a great Case Manager but ultimately it boils down to your ability to build rapport and facilitate change, however intensive or flexible that needs to be. You'll engage with lower to medium-risk service users to ensure they understand and comply with their court requirements, as well as motivate them to make positive life choices. You'll deliver a mixture of group-work and motivational techniques to do this, whilst also checking-in with them regularly on a one to one basis to offer support and signpost personal and community-based opportunities to learn and give back.
Who you'll be.
Whatever job history you've got, your aptitude for creating personal plans and facilitating well-being and social inclusion will definitely be called upon, as will your people skills and ability to engage with vulnerable or at-risk people. But some of the most important qualities stem from life skills - we'll be looking for people who are resilient, with an empathetic, committed, innovative, tenacious and supportive approach, and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure our service users are empowered to go out and live a purposeful life.
Your tools for success.
We will support you every step of the way, so alongside a comprehensive training programme we'll supply you with a new laptop and smart phone, facilitating an agile working practice so you can
meet the needs of our service users as best you can - even if that means working outside of normal office hours.
Our employees have been instrumental in making the service transformation work and we're appreciative of their dedication, input and knowledge now and going forward. So we listen, always.
We also offer employees lots of benefits, including:
- A generous holiday entitlement
- Contributory pension scheme - up to 8%
- Employee discount scheme, with brands such as M&S, Amazon and Sainsbury's
- Community led incentives where you can give back
