Deputy Team Managers - Youth Offending Service

Birmingham Youth Offending Service is in the middle of an exciting and extensive modernisation programme with a clear goal to become the sector leading youth justice service. We are creating a progressive, creative, energetic, and inspiring Service that is equipped to understand and reduce offending behaviour amongst children and we are looking for the right people to help us to achieve this.

You are the right person if you:

  • believe that behaviour is a form of communication and offending is symptomatic of children’s experiences
  • are committed to hearing the voice of the child, their families/carers and their victims and bringing this into the centre of what we do
  • want to work with children and families to build on their strengths and promote a childhood removed from the justice system
  • Value partnership and collaborative working

 We are looking for individuals:  

  • Who are passionate, motivated and enthusiastic about delivering high quality, creative services to children, families and victims.
  • With experience and skills matched to the job description and person specification
  • Who are committed to work with and alongside others, to learn, innovate and drive forward improvements.
