Are you looking for something new, interesting and stimulating which offers the opportunity to use and enhance your experience? If so, the Criminal Justice & Diversion Service is recruiting a full time Support Time Recovery Worker. 

Support Time Recovery Workers play a pivotal role in the service, working with service users to provide support with any practical concerns or difficulties that may be affecting their mental health and wellbeing. They provide a time limited, 1 to 1 support to service users, giving information and/or support to allow them to access a wide range of agencies and services, such as housing, benefits and health.

You will be based in Poole Magistrates’ Court (Monday to Friday from 8.30am – 4.30pm) although the flexibility to cover colleagues in Bournemouth and Weymouth police custody suites is expected. As an all-age service, you will be working with adults and children with a complex range of mental health needs and other vulnerabilities who have come into contact with the criminal justice system. 

A key function in the role will be to work in close liaison building links between partner agencies and supporting effective enablement for vulnerable service users.

  • Employment with the Criminal Justice Liaison & Diversion service is dependent upon passing the police advanced vetting process.
  • As part of this role you will be required to undertake the Care Certificate as part of your induction. The Care Certificate aims to ensure all staff are caring, compassionate and provide quality care in their work and it is therefore expected that you successfully complete all aspects of the Care Certificate to work in this position.
  • The successful applicant is required to hold a full and valid UK driving licence and have access to a vehicle for work purposes.
  • Employment in this post requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.  The DBS levies a charge of £44 and the Trust will recover this cost in instalments from your first 3 salary payments.  This will only apply to candidates who are new to the Trust and not internal staff.  Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service and are able to present a valid DBS certificate will not incur a charge.

Interviews to be held on the 14th March 2018.
