Community Payback Supervisor
Posted on Jan 17, 2019 by Anonymous
At Kent, Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company (KSS CRC), we deliver a range of rehabilitation services to people who have been sentenced by a court to either custody or community supervision. Unpaid work is intended as both a punishment and means by which someone can make amends to the community for the harm they have caused.
Our approach to Community Payback (CP) is to make it engaging for service users so it improves their work ethic and makes them more receptive to learning new skills that will increase their chances of getting work. People sentenced to unpaid work are half as likely to reoffend as those sentenced to a short prison sentence.
This role involves supervising a team of service users out on site in the community to enable them to complete their unpaid work hours on behalf of KSS CRC. Full training will be provided.
The suitable applicant will have the ability to supervise service users out on work placements in the community and provide thorough worksite inductions in line with safe systems.
You will follow a set work plan and transport service users to the site in a minibus for which you will need a manual driving licence.
You will need to organise equipment for the day and complete associated paperwork on a daily basis.
