*Community Payback changes lives. Be part of it.*
Are you looking for a rewarding career where you can motivate and inspire others to make positive changes in their lives, and build better and safer places to live?
Community Payback (CP) isn't just an alternative to custody. It's a way of helping to create better outcomes for people on probation and improve communities. As a Community Payback supervisor, you'll be at its heart, leading teams of people doing a wide variety of unpaid community service work. You'll help them make the most of their time on Community Payback and to get their lives back on track - whether that's learning new skills to increase their chances of employment or thinking through ways to reduce their likelihood of reoffending.
You'll supervise and motivate teams of people on probation as they work at sites in the community. Activities range from making public spaces safer to restoring community facilities such as sports halls and playgrounds.
You can expect to drive a van or minibus to transport people and equipment, and to brief people on probation ahead of each task. You'll demonstrate good practice and ensure tasks are completed to a high standard. Often collaborating with partner organisations, you'll need to be aware of the visible, public nature of the role. You will also be responsible for health and safety and keeping accurate records.
Personal attributes are more important than qualifications or specific work experience. Ready and willing to be a positive role model, you'll have the ability to build rapport with a diverse range of people and will be confident about supervising small groups and maintaining discipline. You'll also enjoy passing on skills and knowledge, perhaps in areas such as building, decorating or gardening. Every day brings new challenges in this varied and meaningful role, so you'll be someone who relishes solving problems in the workplace. As Community Payback groups run seven days a week, you will need to work some weekends. A full driving licence is essential.
*Training and benefits*
We'll bring out the best in you with comprehensive training. Before you start the job, you'll learn about everything from first-aid, health and safety, and risk awareness to how to deal with challenging behaviour. You'll also acquire a wide range of transferable skills, including coaching and mentoring.
If you're looking for career progression, there are opportunities to move into CP management and senior management roles. The first-hand experience you'll gain working with people on probation is an excellent foundation if you're interested in working as a probation services officer or training to be a qualified probation officer. Plus, you'll have access to a wide range of other roles in the Probation Service, such as working in courts or with victims of crime.
We'll reward your commitment with secure and stable employment and benefits including a range of flexible working patterns, an attractive occupational pension (Local Government Pension Scheme), paid sick leave and 25 days paid holiday plus Bank Holidays.
