Are you looking for something new, interesting and stimulating which offers the opportunity to use and enhance your experience?

The Criminal Justice Liaison & Diversion Service is recruiting Band 6, Bank Practitioners.

Working alongside colleagues you will work with service users to provide support with any practical concerns or difficulties that may be affecting their mental health and wellbeing. You will be providing face to face triage assessments for people who are involved with the Criminal Justice system within Dorset. The teams you will work within are dynamic and fast moving and require practitioners to work autonomously; training and support will be provided via shadow shifts.

You will be expected to work flexibly in Bournemouth and Weymouth Magistrates’ Courts and Policy Custody suites working with adults and children with mental health problems who have come into contact with the Criminal Justice System.

A commitment to a close working partnership with both statutory and voluntary sector agencies as well as a complex and diverse range of individuals with varying needs is expected by the successful applicant.

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. Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service and are able to present a valid DBS certificate will not incur a charge.

Work within the Service is dependent upon the worker passing the Police advanced vetting process.
