Apex Scotland is the leading employment and training organisation specialising in work with people with convictions.
Apex Scotland offers a diverse range of services for young people and adults to help them remove personal barriers to employment and engage in education, employment or community activities. We also work in partnership with many organisations and employers.
In partnership with Police Scotland and East Lothian Council Criminal Justice Services, we are seeking to recruit an experienced individual to deliver an Arrest Referral service.
Arrest Referral seeks to address the issues that have led people to become involved in the criminal justice system and support them to ensure that their involvement is brief and does not become entrenched. An arrest and court appearance are crisis points in a person’s life and providing an early and effective intervention can achieve positive outcomes.
The successful applicant will be able to work on their own initiative, be responsible and reliable. They will have knowledge and experience of the criminal justice system and the interventions that support people to desist from re-offending. One to one working will be required.
Apex Scotland seeks to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic individual who has effective communication skills and is able to work on their own or as part of a wider network of support agencies. The post will be based in Musselburgh but will travel throughout East and travel throughout East Lothian and Edinburgh therefore a driving licence and access to own vehicle, or other mode of transport is essential.
The successful applicant will receive extensive training and support along with many additional benefits that make working for Apex Scotland a rewarding choice.
