The Role:

Do you have a passion for helping change young people’s lives?

Are you experience working with vulnerable individuals?

We are looking for a number of people to work with young people on remand or sentenced in order to aid them in turning their lives around in preparation for their release. This is a challenging and yet extremely rewarding position, centred on building individualised relationships that encourage the young people to take ownership of their rehabilitation plan.

You will be working with the young people in partnership with internal agencies to actively address their offending behaviour, whilst also providing a comprehensive resettlement service for them to allow a successful integration back into society upon their release.

In this position you will work 3 long day shifts with 4 days off each week. Additionally every 16 weeks you'll do 7 night shifts in a row followed by 7 days off. Initially all successful applicants will have 7 weeks of paid training, which will provide you with the qualities to become an effective Custodial Care Officer.


In order to be considered for this role you must have either previous experience working with vulnerable, challenging young people or experience working with individuals with mental health problems. You will be someone who can effectively analyse and evaluate evidence to objectively assess cases whilst complying with regulatory requirements in all practice.

Communication skills are essential to this role, as you will be collaborating with colleagues, partners and external agencies in order to create effective rehabilitation programmes for the young offenders. You will also be a calm and resilient individual, with the ability to remain professional whilst working with challenging and often confrontational young people.

If this sounds like you then get in touch with Callum at Service Care Solutions or apply now.

Service Care Solutions also offers a referral bonus, so if this role isn’t right for you but you know someone who may be interested, then forward their details on to us and we will offer a referral bonus of £250 for every new candidate you refer to us that we place in a position for more than 13 weeks
