£35,536 - £36,587 pro rata for part time

Fixed Term until 31 March 2023.

We are looking to recruit an Assistant Operations Manager to join our team within the Suffolk Youth Justice Service (YJS).

YJS works with children and young people who are in, or on the edge of the youth justice system, as well as their parents and carers and the victims of youth crime.

You will be responsible for assisting the Operations Manager in the operational delivery of a multi-agency team based in Bury St Edmunds, which offers a range of services to young people and their carers including structured interventions based on effective practice that aim to prevent offending.

You will have:

  • experience of supervising staff
  • an in-depth knowledge of managing risk of harm and reducing offending practice and procedures
  • knowledge and experience of the criminal justice system.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we have strict limitations on staff working in our offices and most of us are being asked to work from home.  If you wish to discuss how that might impact your working arrangements, please contact the recruiting manager listed at the bottom of this advert.

If you are considering applying for a secondment, please read the secondment policy and ensure you have sought permission to apply before completing your application.

For an informal discussion contact Emma Tongue on 07732 603646.

Please read the Job and Person Profile before applying for this job.

This authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS checks or police vetting will be required for relevant posts. We are also committed to flexible working. For the types of flexible or part time working available for specific roles, please see the Job and Person Profile. Suffolk County Council - welcoming diversity.
