node leader
9 September 2019

The Remedi team in Manchester is looking for a new Restorative Practitioner to supervise reparation hours and run restorative action projects with young people in the Youth Justice Service. The new team member will spend most of their time in the community with young people aged 10-17 fulfilling the reparative element of their order. They are looking for someone who is able to work creatively to engage young people and support them to come up with project ideas to benefit their community as well as work with placements in their local community.

You will take responsibility for the effective delivery of community reparation sessions and restorative action projects (RAPs) provided by Remedi for Manchester youth justice service. This will include working with young people both one to one and on a group basis. Community reparation is a vital component to contributing towards the youth justice service interventions to reducing re-offending. The Restorative practitioner will be responsible for creating and running projects with young people that are required to undertake reparation sessions. Along with the effective supervision of young people, your role will be to motivate and engage them in the successful completion of their hours. Getting stuck into clearing a local park, working outdoors and getting creative with projects should not be something that scares you.
