We are looking for an exceptional person to carry on the important work the YOT does around Restorative Justice (RJ) and Victim work.

You will need to have a mix of skills and attributes; be organised, personable and sensitive as your work will be having direct and indirect contact with victims and offenders both face to face and via telephone on often extremely sensitive issues. First-class communication skills will also be important as you will also have daily contact with practitioners and managers within the YOT, regular contact with the police, mediation, and restorative justice organisations, other YOT’s, Courts and other professional agencies. You will also attend meetings to discuss policy and development of restorative justice principles and practice.

With your expertise and commitment, we will look to you to provide a professional service to victims, offenders and their families whilst keeping up to date and accurate records and data and producing occasional formal reports when required. There is also a ‘hands on’ element to the role, as you will get to put your experience to good use through involvement in work on complex and sensitive cases; some of which may be through RJ conferences.

Whilst no formal qualification is required for this role it would be helpful if you have experience in at least one of the following disciplines: Social Work, Health, Education, Youth engagement, or have experience in at least one of the statutory or voluntary agencies supporting work with young people. Ideally you should also have direct experience of restorative approaches/justice. Training in this area will be provided should this be required.

You must be fluent in the English language (as a requirement of Part 7 of the Immigration Act – for the effective performance of a customer-facing role).
