Cambridgeshire County Council
£27,741 - £32,234
Fixed Term
Scott House, Huntingdon
Closing date:
25 October 2021 at midday
The Youth Offending Service is a multi-disciplinary team delivering services to prevent and reduce offending behaviour amongst young people. A vacancy is available for an experienced practitioner who is able to work with a wide range of young people who enter the criminal justice system. Applicants will need a qualification at diploma level or above in a relevant subject such as social work, youth work or probation. The roles involve working with offenders, courts, risk assessment, report writing and with partner agencies, so experience in these areas is important.

There is currently a vacancy for a full time, fixed term YOS officer post based in Huntingdon due to continue until July 2022. The post is based in Scott House, Huntingdon though it is anticipated that at least half the time will be working from home or away from the office. There is the possibility that in the fulness of time the contract could be extended or even become permanent.

The position is in a very challenging but rewarding area, working with young offenders ranging from those who haven't yet reached the court system through to those in prisons. The successful candidate will manage a caseload of community and custodial sentences ensuring effective assessment, intervention planning, review and risk management. To effectively divert young people from offending, the post-holder will be working with a range of other team members whose roles include substance misuse, psychology, accommodation, victims, education, training and employment.

Secondments from within Cambridgeshire County Council are welcome, but agreement from the current line manager will be required.

Interviews: Monday 8th November.
