We’re looking for resilient, confident individuals who thrives in a target driven environment to join us as an Resettlement Facilitator at HMP Send.
London CRC is the largest of the 21 CRCs across England and Wales. We believe passionately in changing people’s lives for the better. That’s true for the service users we rehabilitate, for the communities we protect and for the people who join our teams. Here at HMP Send - we are responsible for supporting the resettlement needs of women offenders through a range of interventions, throughout their custodial period and post release in the community.
In the role as a Resettlement Facilitator, you will deliver resettlement planning within a specified time frame, working with our partners to provide a resettlement service that keeps the needs of the women at the heart of delivery. You will be working with women in a trauma informed way, on a 1:1 basis, or in small groups, in conjunction with supply chain providers. In doing so, you will build on your existing experience, develop new skills and potential – and help us earn our place as the UK’s most trusted provider of justice services.
Your responsibilities will include:

- Sharing the Plan and Review with the Responsible Officer and, where appropriate, the supply chain key worker
- Coordinating the delivery of pre-release mandated services by making timely referrals to relevant partners
We’re looking for someone with experience of working with offenders and conducting face-to-face assessments – or a willingness to learn. You’ll be able to manage your own workload, meet tight deadlines and communicate well, both verbally and in writing. You will also need:
- Experience of managing administrative systems and processes within an office environment
- Experience of monitoring data and maintaining appropriate records
- Knowledge and understanding of the Criminal Justice system
- Experience of working with confidential information and vulnerable people
- Experience of working with OASys, nDelius or other relevant contact management systems, as well as MS Office (Word, Excel & PowerPoint)
In return, we’ll give you everything you need to succeed. This includes opportunities for personal development, growth and additional learning, as well as health & wellbeing. We offer a holiday entitlement of 27 days, plus bank holidays, (increasing to 33 days) and are open to flexible working.
