St Giles is looking for a Team Leader to join their SOS+ Team.

Job Summary:

Are you a strong team player and leader with an understanding of the issues facing vulnerable young people (i.e. involvement in gangs or knife crime) and a proven ability to supervise staff and manage multiple projects? If so, St Giles is looking for a Team Leader to join their SOS+ Team.

About St Giles:

An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need. Central to our ethos is our belief that people with first-hand experience of successfully overcoming issues such as an offending background, homelessness, addictions and gang involvement, hold the key to positive change in others.

About this vital role:

Managing a team of SOS+ staff who deliver preventative sessions and 1:1 mentoring to children/young people and training sessions to parents and professionals across the sector is what’s required here. Day-to-day, we’ll rely on you to support and supervise a team of SOS+ Staff and Volunteers in identified SOS+ projects. You’ll also work closely with the Assistant Team Manager on the development and delivery of all SOS+ services. And, when it comes to overseeing the coordination and delivery of our East of England Mentoring programme, ensuring delivery data is recorded, evaluated and reported or helping to develop and trial new ways of working, again, we’ll count on you.

As an organisation that works with children and adults at risk we are committed to safeguarding, protecting and promoting the safety of our clients and successful applicants will be DBS Checked.

What we are looking for:

- Personal experience of the criminal justice system, lived experience of the issues facing this client group (i.e. involved in gangs or knife crime) and/or experience of working with ‘high risk’, vulnerable children, young people and/or families
- A relevant qualification to a good standard (or working towards one)
- Good supervisory experience including setting objectives, planning and supporting day-to-day workloads and coaching, developing and motivating staff and volunteer
- A proven ability to work with key stakeholders and partners to achieve agreed goals and represent your organisation’s services, strategy and aspirations on an internal and external basis.
- A flair for setting up and operating monitoring and reporting systems
- Self-motivation, emotional resilience, a flexible approach and the ability to effectively manage your own wellbeing

In return, you can expect a competitive salary, generous leave allowance, staff pension, flexible working, a mentoring programme, an advice and counselling service, access to clinical supervisions, season ticket loan and much more.

Closing date: 11pm, 24th January 2021. Interviews: 1st February 2021.
