About the role

The implementation of the Care Act (2014) means Surrey County Council now holds social care responsibilities whilst prisoners reside in Surrey Prisons. This is an exciting and developing area of social care and we are looking to appoint a full time Support Time and Recovery post to join our team to deliver social care into prisons.

The post holders will require experience across older persons, mental health, learning disabilities or physical disabilities. The post holder will be part of a small specialist team delivering social care into prisons. The role includes a re-ablement element to support those with physical needs and developing independence across a range of needs. The post holder will be linked into an identified prison but there will also be an expectation of working across other prisons at times to maintain cover seven days a week (between 8am to 8pm).

You will be required to be self-motivated with a high level of autonomous working. You will need to be flexible and adaptable to work in a challenging and demanding environment to promote the social care agenda within the prisons for those who are eligible for services.

You will need to feel comfortable working within the constraints of the prison environment and will be required to have a successful additional prison security check.

You are required to hold a full current driving licence and use of a vehicle to enable you to effectively undertake this role. Applications from those who do not meet this requirement will not be considered.

An enhanced DBS 'Disclosure and Barring Service' check for regulated activity (formerly known as CRB) and the Children's and Adults' Barred List checks will be required for this role.
