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

A new post has become available with Sacro for Criminal Justice Support Worker in our new Bail Mentoring Team in South Lanarkshire.

The service works in partnership with Justice Social Work and provides a community alternative to remand for individuals appearing at South Lanarkshire Courts.

You will assist in the delivery and development of the day to day running of Bail Mentoring under the direction of the Service Team Leader and Service 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 South Lanarkshire area 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. Experience in social care and working with offenders is desirable.
