We believe that a career is not just about earning a living; it's about leadership, having your say and making things happen that can mean positive changes to the lives of vulnerable people.

Nacro is launching CAS-2, a national service commissioned by Ministry of Justice to provide accommodation and support as an alternative to custody.  We are looking for a number of Senior Support Workers to join us at an exciting time of change.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Senior Support Worker to make a positive impact on the lives of service users by co-ordinating the provision of direct housing related support and housing management services.

You will have previous experience of supporting others and guiding them within a team as you will be required to support, coach and develop a staffing team and deputise for the Service Lead in their absence. 

 

This role provides an excellent springboard into other criminal justice professions including experience of working with a range of criminal justice agencies. In addition, you will gain experience in liaising with local authority Housing Benefit departments and the DWP to resolve financial issues/queries.
