In 2015 we won a bid to deliver 25% of England's offender rehabilitation requirements through five community rehabilitation 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.
Why we're different.
Like other probation services across the UK, we're ultimately here to protect the public and manage risk but our approach sets us apart from the rest. We call it the Interchange Model. It has a strong theoretical base, and is grounded in the latest and best research on what works in promoting desistance and reducing re-offending, and we're already seeing some really good benefits from this approach.
What we'll expect.
As you'll know first-hand, helping someone turn their life around is immensely rewarding, especially with the harder to reach, higher risk and more complex cases which you'll be supervising to enforce the sentence of the court. Using the Interchange Model you'll complete assessments, apply risk management principles, plan supervision and deliver specialist interventions to help our service users make their lives the best they can.
In terms of the bigger picture, you'll also be pivotal to the success of your team - using your experience and knowledge to solve problems and improve ways of working, coaching and mentoring case managers to help them meet the rehabilitation goals of their own cases, whilst fostering good working relationships with partner suppliers and community resources. Your experience and connections may mean that you're able to recognise and develop non-core probation opportunities that service users can benefit from, which we'll wholeheartedly support.
It's a challenging job, but also rewarding and stimulating which you'll thrive on.
What you can expect.
To help you adapt to the new way of working, we will support you every step of the way with an excellent mentorship programme. We'll also supply you with a new laptop and smart phone,
facilitating an agile/flexible working practice so you can meet the needs of our service users as best you can - even if that means working outside of standard office hours, so the arrangement is beneficial to both you and the service users. We're always willing to listen to your ideas about developing the services we offer outside of core probation work.
For your personal career aspirations, we're there for you too, offering chances to flex, learn and hone your skills in other areas of their business. We'll listen to what you want from the organisation and promote beneficial training and development opportunities to make sure you excel as a probation professional with Interserve.
