Hillingdon Council: Putting our Residents first.
About the role
Want a rewarding job with one of London's most innovative and award winning Youth Justice Services? We have one of the lowest regional and national First Time Entrants rates so must be doing something right!
"Youth crime is prevented because we, as a service, deliver positive and effective interventions which enable young people to lead constructive and socially responsible lives" is our vision and you could be part of a dedicated enthusiastic service changing the lives of vulnerable adolescents in the criminal justice system.
Sounds great doesn't it? Don't just take it from us… feedback from our young people, families and community say "my son is so much more focused now all down to you", "I wish we had the services that the YJS have given us sooner you have changed our lives", "if it wasn't for my case manager I would still be offending".
Hillingdon Youth Justice Service are proud to be a diverse multi agency service that benefits from located specialists from key disciplines including Speech and Language Therapist, Liaison and Diversion, CAMHS, Education and Participation Officers and Substance Misuse that provide a holistic approach to rehabilitation all under one roof.
We are looking for a committed and innovative Restorative Justice Officer to help drive forward the delivery of Restorative Justice and victim work within Hillingdon Youth Justice Service.
The successful candidate will have significant experience of working with challenging young people, ideally within a Youth Justice or crime prevention setting. Knowledge and understanding of the relevant legislation in relation to young offenders, alongside knowledge of restorative justice and reparation practice is also essential.
You will be able to work creatively with young people to design and facilitate bespoke reparation projects that benefit the local community as well as being key to the delivery of Restorative Justice interventions. This will include working with both our young people and those harmed by criminal activity to explore restorative outcomes and support the facilitation of these in accordance with the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime.
You will receive access to training and a focus on professional development alongside an attractive package of employment. In return you will bring excellent organisation skills, knowledge, ability to work autonomously and a passion for making difference.
