About us
 
Building Brighter Futures for Young People in Lambeth
There has never been a better time to work in Lambeth Youth Offending Service.
We have an exciting programme of change taking place and we want your skills and experience to help us drive forward our ambitious plans for a service that puts children, young people and families at the heart of our practice.
We call our approach ‘Building Brighter Futures’ which makes a reality of ‘child first and offender second’ as advocated in the Taylor review of youth justice.
 
About the job
 
We are looking to recruit to a number of Prevention Officer vacancies within Lambeth's Youth Offending Service to work as part of a multi-agency team whose overall aim is to prevent the risk of offending and re-offending by young people.
These roles are critical in leading our work to deliver high quality practice and excellent outcomes for our young people. The Prevention Officer is responsible for providing case work support to young people and families with multiple needs. You will hold a caseload of young people subject to triage interventions. The work will involve undertaking assessments and putting in place brief targeted interventions aimed at linking young people and their families into universal services in order to divert them from the Youth Justice System.
You will use your skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to the development of new programmes and projects using evidence-based practice.
We are looking for highly motivated, optimistic and confident professionals to join our freshly re-designed service that puts our resources where they will have the most impact.
