Team Manager (Youth Offending Service)
Cornwall is an improving authority with a forward thinking agenda. The local authority's Youth Offending Service has consistently been one of the highest performing in the country in comparison to national and regional averages and against our statistical neighbours over the last ten years. The next stage of our improvement journey is about becoming a learning organisation, where every individual takes responsibility for the quality of their own work and expect to be held to account when there are persistent or serious shortfalls in the quality of practice.
We think Cornwall offers a good time and place to develop your career as a Team Manager. This post will be located in the mid of the county in St Austell.
You will have a proven track record in supervising and supporting others to achieve good quality practice standards. You will have a strong sense of the child's lived experience at the centre of your practice as a supervisor and be familiar with critical reflection and the need for positive challenge at the heart of supervision. You will be able to demonstrate competence and confidence in dealing with poor performance and in overcoming professional differences.
An understanding of adolescent behaviour and development and knowledge of the youth justice system is essential. You will be responsible for helping the service to develop and apply the competence and confidence to produce work that is consistently good.
This position will be subject to an enhanced criminal record disclosure check.
Cornwall Council is committed to safeguarding and is an equal opportunities employer.
