Young People’s Circles of Support and Accountability Coordinator

Safer Living Foundation - Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire

22.5 hours per week – flexible working hours required

Start date - ASAP after 20th October 2017

Salary £25,000 - £30,000

An opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified and/or experienced person to work for the Safer Living Foundation delivering Young People’s Circles of Support and Accountability in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. The successful candidate will be expected to have a good knowledge and understanding of the Youth Justice System and experience of working with young people and/or young offenders.

The primary purpose of this post is to develop and maintain – within the statutory framework – our new Young People’s Circles of Support and Accountability project. This project works with young people aged 10-21 (who reside in Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire) who have been cautioned or convicted of a sexual offence and who require additional support to help improve their emotional well-being and decrease their social isolation. Managed by the Project Coordinator, the young person will be supported by a Circle of 3-5 specially trained volunteers who meet weekly with the young person. Volunteers will deliver a pro social intervention building on the young person’s strengths, interests and hobbies to ensure their safe inclusion and integration into the community, reducing chances of social isolation, emotional loneliness and reoffending.

The successful candidate will be based at HMP Whatton and will have responsibility for coordinating the Young People’s Circles Project across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. The post will be for 22.5 hours per week and will initially be for one year with the possibility to renew depending upon additional funding being received. Salary will be £25,000-£30,000 and will be negotiated subject to qualifications and experience. Flexible working hours will be necessary.
