Youth Justice Service Senior Case Manager
Nottinghamshire Youth Justice Service are recruiting a Senior Case Manager to the South Team, primarily covering Rushcliffe, Gedling and Broxtowe areas although there is an expectation to travel across Nottinghamshire County.
First rate communication skills coupled with child-centred values are essential. Partnership working is at the core of Youth Justice work, thus the ability to work with and influence professionals in a variety of settings is a core skill set.
You will also have excellent skills in relation to working with young people and families, sound knowledge and understanding of the Criminal Justice System and proven experience of working to address risks and needs within the family setting.
The role involves managing a caseload of complex young people, some of whom are subject to court orders, thus the ability to produce high quality assessments and reports to inform decision making across a number of areas, including diversion, the Courts, community orders and resettlement, is essential.
Nottinghamshire YJS deliver an accessible service which is responsive to the needs of children and families and integrated with local partners’ ways of working. Candidates will, therefore, be willing to work flexibly with there being an expectation to work evenings where required. This post will include a focus on working with partners to divert young people from offending and reducing the risk of criminalisation, with working practice and patterns adjusted accordingly.
Furthermore, this post requires a formal relevant professional qualification e.g. Social work, Probation or an NVQ Level 4 or equivalent in a closely related field. In addition to this you must evidence your relevant experience for the role. For internal candidates you must have the minimum of two years of experience as a Band A Case manager. For external candidates, you must have the minimum of two years post qualification experience within the associated field.
If you have any questions regarding the suitability of your qualification or require more information about the role advertised, you can contact Shareen Bashir on 07580 973172 for an informal discussion.
Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview. A job share scheme is available for all full time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
