As part of our Justice Services Team, supervisors for unpaid work orders are responsible for the supervision of people undertaking Community Payback Order unpaid work requirements at various sites across the council area to ensure a high quality and consistent service.

We are seeking to recruit additional sessional supervisors who can work at weekends and weekdays as required.

Your main duties will be to: supervise groups of people placed in unpaid work groups within the community; ensure standards of conduct and work are maintained; advise and demonstrate tasks to enable offenders to understand and carry these out in a satisfactory manner. The completion of standard paperwork relating to attendance, performance and absence is integral to the post.

You will also have some responsibility for tools and equipment by ensuring proper maintenance and usage and adherence to relevant Health and Safety Directives.

You will have an appreciation and understanding of offending behaviour, as well as the importance of modelling pro-social behaviour and attitudes. You will also be expected to have some knowledge of resources required for placements and understanding of health and safety procedures. Previous experience in a position of similar responsibility would be a significant advantage, as will proven experience of hard landscaping tasks.
