A rewarding career

That makes

a genuine difference

Do you want to go home from work every day feeling you made a real difference?

Then join our team…

We’re always looking for great people. And if you are looking for a rewarding career that makes a genuine social difference – we’d like to hear from you.

We are currently looking for Case Managers across various locations in the South West of England and Wales. If you’re a qualified Probation Officer or Social Worker looking for a new challenge, get in touch.

You’d be joining us at an extremely exciting time as we develop different and creative approaches to see how we can meet peoples’ needs in a better way and we would love to involve you in this – as your ideas and experience are important.

About the role

Case Managers are responsible for working with people to help them lead a crime free lifestyle – building positive relationships with individuals, supporting rehabilitation in to their communities, reducing their risk of reoffending and ensuring their needs are met along the way.

The role is extremely rewarding as you’ll have a real impact on someone’s life. And although your work is varied and diverse, everything we do is underpinned by a common social purpose, a strong set of values and a shared commitment to putting the people which need our support at the heart of our services.

This is a hands-on role where your training and judgement is key, as you balance the needs of the individual against the risk to the public and take action where necessary.

You work directly with service users – assessing and managing risk of offending and harm; sentence planning; and supervising and enforcing Community Orders, licences and prison licences. You assess service user needs to achieve community reintegration, monitor their progress and help them to achieve the successful completion of their orders / licences.  You also keep records and prepare documentation and reports. 

You also work with local agencies and partners to provide solutions for some of the most disadvantaged and challenging individuals to help them in to employment, accommodation, to return to family homes, to build better relationships – and other rehabilitative steps to support them to remain crime free.

You will be encouraged to make improvements to ways of working to help people remain in the community and to help them make the most of the support available in the community.
Experienced Case Managers will have the opportunity to mentor less experienced practitioners or unqualified practitioners seeking a career in probation rehabilitation services.

About you

A qualified Probation Officer or Social Worker, you’ll need to be able to demonstrate your previous experience of supporting vulnerable people and your knowledge of relevant legislation. It’s important you’re a people person who can easily build relationships too, with knowledge and experience of local specialist networks and provision. You need to be organised, motivated, passionate and creative. We’re looking for forward thinking people who are able to make things happen – and quickly.

  • Starting salary of £29’038, with potential earnings of up to £36,084 dependent on experience

  • Pension Scheme

  • Flexible benefits scheme

  • Generous annual leave    

  • Employee Assistance programme and a variety of wellbeing services to support a healthy lifestyle
