We are looking to recruit a Criminal Justice Support worker to work with people who are subject to statutory and non-statutory court disposals as additional support to compliment work being undertaken by Justice staff. You should be able to demonstrate good communication skills and be skilled at developing positive working relationships with both colleagues and those who come into contact with our services.

You will be required to have experience of working with people involved in the Criminal Justice System.

Additional skills, which will be necessary include good organisation and IT skills. Successful applicants will be required to be flexible in approach and have the ability to travel across North Ayrshire.

Experience of working in a supporting role is essential and a recognised qualification is desirable although full training will be given.

You will be required to contribute to reports and to keeping records updated.

The role is as challenging as it is rewarding, you will need to have a non-judgemental value base, a sensitive and practical approach, and be person-centred and flexible to meet the needs of our service users.
