About the Role

Resettlement Workers will be responsible for:

  • Completion of initial needs and risk assessments for each offender

  • Ensuring case details are entered onto the agreed Case Management systems (such as OASys, CRC systems and Shelter recording tool) accurately and punctually.

 

Some CRC and HMP locations are difficult to reach with the use of Public Transport. It is therefore preferable for candidates to have a full driver’s license and access to a vehicle with relevant insurance
