Caritas Care is looking for an experienced Project Worker to support the development of the Assisted Community Engagement (ACE) Project based in Preston. The project supports people leaving prison to make the successful transition into community life. We are looking for an exceptional and talented individual with the knowledge and understanding of the multitude of problems ex-offenders face on release.
Candidates must have worked previously with prisoners and ex-offenders and be familiar with providing hands-on support at a community and statutory level to meet the needs of service users and bring about stability in their lives. Candidates should also be experienced with working with different recovery agencies and have demonstrable experience of working with Adults and/or Young People. As many of our service users experience multiple and complex needs, including substance misuse, homelessness and mental health, an understanding of such issues is essential. The individuals should also have experience in working with and alongside volunteers. Use of car is an essential requirement of this post.
