Employment Advisor – Ex offender (Guildford)

Job Reference: LZ710

Salary/Hourly Rate: £21,000 - £23,000

Location: Guildford

Full or Part time: Full time

Duration: Permanent

Imagine if your job was to support, coach and mentor ex-offenders to re-integrate back into society?  Combine that with joining a charity that has won awards for being a great place to work (heaps of benefits including 28 days leave plus bank hols) – and you end each week knowing you are doing good things at an organisation that looks after and develops you.

 This role would suit an Employment Advisor who is frustrated at not being able to spend enough time supporting people with the bigger picture stuff.  As a specialist advisor, you will work with a caseload of recently released ex-offenders to provide them primary support around securing employment – but also signposting them to other services to cover things like debt management, housing, family re-integration or drug and alcohol support.  You will be based working out of a probation centre, where you will work closely with offender managers who will refer clients for you to work with over a period of time.  There are monthly targets to work to – but it’s not all about the job starts, and helping someone take a step in the right direction counts as a progress measure on this contract.

 If you have a background in helping unemployed job seekers back into work, or have worked in a role where you have helped clients within criminal justice, this could be a nice move for you.  Please apply via this advert. If you would like to have a chat first, or have applied and have not heard back, please call the office and ask for Lawrence (contact details on the Red 5 Solutions website).
