Job description

Become a Switchback Mentor

Are you passionate about working directly with people from marginalised communities on a 1-to-1 basis? Would you relish the chance to build relationships with young adult prison-leavers as part of an award-winning small charity in East London?

Becoming a Switchback Mentor is a unique opportunity to build transformative relationships with young prison-leavers, supporting Switchback Trainees to find a way out of the justice system and build a stable, rewarding life. You will go into prisons to directly engage young men and continue that intensive support after release with a small caseload in the community. You will receive sector-leading training, professional development and supervision from a leading resettlement charity recognised by the Longford Prize as “a beacon of hope at a time of chaos”.

If you are someone with at least one year’s experience of working directly with people with complex needs and looking for a unique opportunity to work in a truly person-centred way (no tick-boxes here!), we want to hear from you.

Switchback is committed to diversity in all that it does and strongly encourages applications from every part of the communities we serve, particularly people from BAME backgrounds and those with lived experience of the criminal justice system. All appointments are made on merit.

About Switchback

Switchback is an award-winning charity helping young Londoners to find a way out of the justice system and build a stable, rewarding life they can be proud of. We provide intensive one-to-one support on both sides of the prison gate alongside real-work training after release, supporting 18-30 year-old men (Switchback Trainees) to make real, lasting change. Our long-term approach means that Switchback Trainees are five times less likely to return to custody. Building on 12 years of impact, Switchback is growing fast and setting our sights higher than ever, aiming to reach even more prison-leavers while inspiring change across the system. To do so we need more amazing people to become Switchback Mentors supporting young men through-the-gate. That’s where you come in.

During the pandemic Switchback has rapidly reconfigured its service – pausing our in-prison work to focus on community support post-release – and in the past year we have worked with more young prison-leavers than ever before. We aim to restart our pre-release work in prisons as soon as it is safe to do so.

About you

We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals, brilliant at working with people and keen for the chance to be autonomous, with support. You will be able to expect the unexpected, be energetic and have a good sense of self-awareness. With a commitment to learning and furthering your own development, you will also have great attention to detail and a desire for accuracy and consistency. You will be excited about the chance to be part of a cutting-edge charity enabling some of London’s most marginalised young people to make real, lasting change in their lives.

Training and support for this role

Switchback has a serious commitment to Switchback Mentor development. Helping build your expertise as a therapeutic practitioner is part of the package alongside salary and benefits. In-house training in our unique award-winning change model is complemented by external training in different psychological methods of practice. And while skills development is extensive, Switchback also provides support, containment and further growth opportunities for Switchback Mentors through clinical supervision and psychologically-informed group reflective practice on a regular basis.
