We are looking for a motivated and committed individual who has the knowledge, skills and personal drive to join our well-established Justice Services Team. You will work alongside experienced criminal justice workers to provide a range of support and interventions to enhance opportunities for rehabilitation and the prevention of further offending.
The role will include: supporting and managing people subject to Community Payback Orders including unpaid work, Prison Throughcare, Diversion from Prosecution and Fiscal Work Orders as well as providing supervision and support to women in the criminal justice system. You will also be expected to assist in the supervision and monitoring of individuals who sexually offend and those who pose a Risk of Serious Harm to the public.
Whilst a professional qualification is not essential, you must have knowledge of the criminal justice system and have relevant experience of supporting people with convictions who face barriers to social inclusion, housing and employability services. You should have an understanding of the current developments in Community Justice and have a commitment to working towards prevention, reducing offending, service user involvement, ensuring public safety and holding people to account for their offending behaviour.
This post is considered Regulated Work with Children and Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. It is an offence therefore to apply if you are barred from working with children and protected adults.
This post requires Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) registration. You must currently have registration or eligibility to apply from commencement of employment (you must complete registration within the first 6 months of employment).
Employees with a contract of employment for 3 months or more are automatically included in our Local Government Pension Scheme which is a career average scheme. Pension contribution rates are based on a tiered system determined by your annual full time equivalent pensionable pay. For example for those earning up to and including £21,800 the contribution rate you pay is 5.5% of your salary. The council pays the rest of the cost of providing your benefits. This amount varies but it’s always enough to make sure your pension can be paid and will be at least 19.3% of your pay. In addition you get tax relief on your contributions – the tax you pay on your salary is calculated after your pension contributions are deducted.
Other main pension benefits include a pension that increases each year in line with price inflation and the ability to exchange some of your pension to provide a tax free lump sum. Further details can be found in the attached document General Information for Applicants or via the Strathclyde Pension Fund website www.spfo.org.uk.
