We are seeking to appoint six sessional workers to help support the service we provide in South Yorkshire by providing cover for planned or unexpected absence on a needs basis.
The role will involve day to day identification of resettlement needs, the completion of resettlement plans and the delivery of resettlement services such as accommodation; education, training, employment; finance, benefit and debt services, giving appropriate tailored support to those that need it most. You will be expected to work as a team in custody, through the gate and in the community.
You must have an empathetic and supportive approach as you will be responsible for identifying resettlement needs of offenders with multiple needs and enabling them to be involved in their own resettlement needs and in turn support them ‘Through the Gate’ and into the community.
Experience supporting individuals being released from custody will be an advantage. You will have a strong practical understanding of resettlement issues alongside excellent communication, time management and organisational skills. You will also have experience of promoting services and working alongside partner organisations to ensure the best possible package of support for service users.
It is expected that you will be flexible in order to deliver services in custody or in the community and as such you may be required to travel between different delivery sites, which will include prisons and the community, across South Yorkshire to undertake this role.
