Are you a proactive, compassionate and highly motivated individual with a meticulous approach to your work? If so, join St Giles Trust as a Data Coordinator / Resettlement Caseworker working in our dynamic delivery team, and in return you will be embarking on a rewarding role that will take your career to the next level.

About St Giles Trust

A well-established charity that helps ex-offenders and disadvantaged people to move their lives forward, St. Giles Trust offers support to help people overcome any issues that might be holding them back and to prevent the likelihood of them reoffending on release. Often, this is provided by the people who know best how to help – those who have been there themselves.

Central to our future plans is a Cabinet Office-funded project that will see our successful candidate work alongside Peer Advisors to help provide a vital Through the Gates service focused on reducing reoffending.

About this exciting opportunity

Based within a custodial setting, you will provide essential administrative support, such as organising work, setting meetings and communicating information, for the St Giles Trust team across the region. You will also collect and collate data, plus oversee the development and maintenance of efficient office, database and recording systems.

A key element of this role will be taking the lead on the delivery and coordination of resettlement plan interventions for service users, in co-operation with prison staff, Peer Advisors, a Case Manager and other providers. You will also use your excellent interpersonal skills to develop strong relationships with other teams within the Prison and to contribute to the development of a positive and successful team.

To make sure you don’t miss out, you must have:

  • Excellent IT skills, including experience of  using Word, Excel and Outlook in a similar work environment
  • The ability to work with a case database on a day-to-day basis
  • Strong attention to detail and the ability to develop and maintain filing, database and recording systems
  • Professional, calm and highly approachable, you will be an outstanding communicator, verbal and written
  • Impressive time-management and prioritisation skills, and be able to work on your own initiative
  • An understanding of the issues facing those in prison and on release with multiple and complex needs
  • Sympathy with the aims and ethos of St Giles as an organisation

In return, you can expect a competitive salary and generous leave allowance, staff pension scheme, flexible working, a mentoring programme, an advice and counselling service, childcare vouchers, season ticket loan and much more besides.
