Role

A Criminal Justice Worker is required to provide support and advice through structured mentoring for females who are involved in the Criminal Justice System.

Support needs vary enormously dependant on criminogenic needs/risks, examples include: addressing offending behaviour through the delivery of behaviour change programmes, supporting service users with mental health and wellbeing, exploring housing options, compliance with statutory orders and supporting service users to access education/ employment. Experience of working with women in the criminal justice system is essential.

The ability to use initiative and organise workload within a pressurised environment is essential. Successful applicants will be flexible and imaginative in their approach and sensitive and confident in their ability to help service users.

Multi-Agency working is crucial as Sacro work in partnership with Fife Council Criminal Justice Social Work to provide a holistic support service to service users in Fife.

You should be able to demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication skills. A relevant qualification is desirable but is not essential.
