Come and work for an “Outstanding” Youth Offending Service. In March 2019 the East Riding of Yorkshire Youth Offending Service became the first to ever score full marks across the board in an inspection by HM Inspectorate of Probation. Inspectors noted: “Staff build fruitful relationships with children, young people, parents and carers, and partner services. It is evident that children and young people are listened to and their goals and aspirations are taken seriously and acted upon.”

We are seeking to recruit an energetic, enthusiastic and highly motivated person with an ability to use their own initiative.

The post requires skills and experience working with young people and families involved in the criminal justice system.  The successful applicant will be responsible for the case management and assessment of young people.  In addition, work with the parents/carers of such young people will form part of the core work.  As a multi-agency team, it is expected for the post holder to liaise closely with colleagues from partner agencies to ensure a young person’s individual needs are addressed.  There will also be an element of pre-sentence report writing and Court work involved with this post.


The ideal candidate will have:

-A relevant nationally recognised qualification (Social Work/ Degree in Youth Justice/Criminology/Psychology)

-Experience of working with young people and their families

-Experience of working with young offenders

-Excellent communication and writing skills

-The ability to work flexible hours if needed, include evenings and weekends

-The ability to work as part of a team


Appointment to the post is subject to a satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau and also successful police vetting.
