Probation in the UK is going through a fundamental change with the majority of Probation services being reabsorbed into the National Probation Service and with that will undoubtedly come a period of transition that will require flexible ways of working, flexible attitudes and flexible approaches to facilitate as smooth a transition as possible.
As a First Tier Supplier of contingent workers to the National Probation Service, using the experiences that we gained during TR1 and specialising in working with Probation skilled staff and organisations, with all the changes that the Probation Service is going through, Servoca is ideally placed to help address the resource and recruitment challenges that CRCs and NPS face.
Having established ourselves by providing Community Payback Supervisors for cover and relief to a number of Probation Trusts, we extended our recruitment expertise into roles including but not restricted to:
Probation Officers, Senior Probation Officers, Offender Managers, Probation Service Officers, Pre-Sentence Report Writers, Placement Managers, Project Workers, Residential Workers, Learning & Development Officers, Community Payback / Unpaid Work Supervisors, VQ Assessor/Practice Tutor, Assessor, Bail Information Officers, Bail Accommodation Support Officer, Community Payback Placement Coordinator, Resettlement Caseworker/Case Manager.
When first establishing our pool of flexible, reliable and trustworthy Community Payback Supervisors, Servoca quickly understood the need to recognise the variable workload and shift patterns that are inherent with this type of work. We work hard to select candidates who can demonstrate an understanding and commitment to offender rehabilitation, that possess practical skills, and have a professional background which equips them to manage a group of offenders.
This follows through in our approach to working with other Probation skilled individuals. Alongside our specialist and REC qualified recruitment consultants, Servoca Resourcing Solutions also work closely with our contractors to identify new candidates as well as other areas that we can beneficially supply to the Probation market space.
