About the role

Surrey Youth Offending Service (YOS) is a multi-agency team set up as a result of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. In addition to Youth Offending Service workers, it includes representatives from the police, probation, education and health. The YOS also works closely with Social Services and Community Safety.

The aim of the team is to work with children and families to address factors that lead to offending behaviour in children between the ages of 10 and 17.

The role of the Youth Offending Service includes:

  • Running local crime prevention programmes and offering voluntary support programmes.
  • Helping children and their families at court.
  • Supervising children serving a community sentence.
  • Working with a child if they are sentenced to custody.

Role Functions

Provide a flexible and responsive performance analysis service that enriches the understanding of service performance and quality across Surrey youth justice service, services for vulnerable adolescents and the "youth offer" to support business efficiency and service improvement.

Lead on the analysis of complex statistical business data and information, to inform youth justice and youth support service strategic and business planning. The post holder will be required to present the intelligence gleaned from data to influence service delivery and the quality of service.
