About the role

The Youth Justice Service is a multi-disciplinary team delivering services to prevent and reduce offending behaviour amongst young people. A vacancy is available for an experienced  practitioner who is able to work with a wide range of young people who enter the criminal justice system. The role involves working with young people who have offended, courts, undertaking risk assessments, report writing and working closely with partner agencies, so experience in these areas is important. As a senior practitioner the postholder will take on additional areas of responsibility as well as holding a more challenging / complex caseload of young people.

There is currently a vacancy for a full time, permanent YJS officer post based in Huntingdon. The post is based in Scott House, Huntingdon though it is anticipated that at least half the time will be working from home or in the community.
