Youth Offending Team worker

Full time 12 month contract


Northamptonshire Youth Offending Service is looking for two YOS Workers to join our North and Court Teams.

You will be experienced in undertaking complex assessments with children and young people, writing reports and designing/delivering interventions and, if you have experience of working in a Youth Offending Service, so much the better. You will be a confident and credible practitioner with a passion for children and young people, their parents/carers, victims of crime, professional colleagues and in formal environments such as the Youth and Crown Court.

You will understand that the ability to motivate children & young people, their parents & carers, and other workers are all critical to giving you the opportunity to put your knowledge and experience to good use. Working in the community, you will see young people both in our offices and in various community venues, including their own homes. You will also be expected to engage with young people whilst in custodial establishments. Whatever the environment, you will be skilled at building and sustaining professional relationships swiftly to maximise the impact of your work.

The Youth Offending Service is a highly successful statutory partnership which is required to reduce the offending of children and young people; reduce the incidence of harm to potential victims; repair existing harm where possible and safeguard the welfare of the children and young people with whom we work. You must be able to identify and act upon risks, and do so swiftly when required.

You will be expected to offer a range of approaches to your work, which are responsive to the needs of the individuals. The YOS client group can live chaotic lifestyles, and your persistence and determination will be important to your ability to engage, and re-engage with those who need you most. You will work in partnership with colleagues inside and outside the YOS. This will include representing our service in Court, presenting professionally to magistrates and judges.

A professional qualification or relevant degree with relevant experience is essential for this role, so you will have a nationally recognised qualification as a Youth Worker, Nurse, Probation Officer, Social Worker, Teacher or equivalent. The successful candidate will be required to undergo an Enhanced DBS check.

Interviews are planned for the 16th and 17th December
