Role

Sacro’s Mission is to create safe and cohesive communities by reducing conflict and offending.

One full-time post has become available within Sacro for Criminal Justice Support Worker to join our established Bail Mentoring team in Glasgow.

The service works in partnership with Justice Social Work and provides a community alternative to remand for individuals appearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

You will assist in the delivery and development of the day to day running of Bail Mentoring under the direction of the Team Leader and Community Justice Manager. You will be involved in the assessment and appropriate monitoring/support of service users, including home visits. You will be responsible for the management of data relating to service users, preparing written reports for Social Work and the Sheriff Court and liaison with other agencies.

All posts require the ability to use initiative and organise workload within a pressurised environment. Knowledge of the Justice system, substance misuse, homelessness and/or complex needs and of the relevant services available in Glasgow would be an advantage. Relevant experience within Justice services as well as partnership working is desirable. The successful applicants will be flexible and proactive in their approach and sensitive and confident in their ability to assist service users.

Sacro services work with individuals involved in offending, anti-social behaviour, and substance misuse issues.
