South Lanarkshire Council is an ambitious, high performing organisation with a clear vision and programme of action which is designed to improve the lives and prospects of everyone in South Lanarkshire.
The aim of Social Work Resources is to promote social welfare and provide effective care and support to meet the needs of vulnerable people in South Lanarkshire.
In partnership with community planning partners, voluntary and independent provider organisations, we offer a range of services designed to enable, support, improve and protect the health and social care of people using our services.
Social Work Resources have been redesigning elements of the delivery of its Unpaid Work service. The unpaid work service works with and monitors those who are subject to a Court Disposal of a Community Payback Order (Unpaid Work & Other Activity Requirement) or a Fiscal Work Order and are undertaking unpaid work in the community.
The role of a Social Work Assistant in the unpaid work service is to work as part of a multi-agency team delivering and co-ordinating the unpaid service provision to individuals subject to Community Payback Order.
We are looking for highly organised and conscientious individuals to undertake the case management responsibilities in line with the National Outcomes and Standards for the Criminal Justice Services (2010). This post would require you to directly interact with service users and work with partner agencies to achieve successful completion of court imposed Community Payback Orders. The post also requires you to use your own initiative to utilise the ‘other activity’ element of an Order.
All applicants must be willing to undertake any relevant training and be committed to work with service users who are subject to the Community Payback Order scheme.
As part of our approach to good practice and safer recruitment we carry out a number of pre-employment checks for example, Identity, Asylum and Immigration and employment history.

Candidates should be able to detail any gaps in employment and provide a foreign police check where applicable for any periods living or working abroad.
