Job description

Fixed Term Contract until 30th June 2023

Royal London Hospital, London E1

Ref Code: TCW-222

Are you a proactive, compassionate and engaging individual with a proven record of working successfully with vulnerable young people, specifically prisoners? Then join St Giles as a Trauma Caseworker and you will be embarking on a highly rewarding and career-enhancing position.

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. 

St Giles SOS Project works in partnership with Barts NHS Trust at the Royal London Hospital supporting young victims of serious youth violence. We know from this work that it is essential that these young victims are provided with the right help during their time in hospital, on discharge and in the period that follows to ensure they are in a situation which is safe and supported. This minimises the risk of them suffering reprisals and helps them to have a positive future to look forward to through the recovery process and beyond.

About this key role

As an SOS Caseworker you will provide a high level service to victims of serious violence, aged 11 – 25 years old.

You will also be responsible for providing a support service to those young people who are admitted to the Royal London Major Trauma Unit following a violent assault; to promote engagement with other agencies, gang exit, and desistance and to provide practical support as needed.

What we are looking for:

  • Experience of working with socially excluded young people and adults
  • Experience of providing support, advice and advocacy
  • Experience in negotiating with partner agencies to establish links to further the aims of a project
  • A knowledge of services for offenders and patterns of offending in the service provision area (mainly NE London but potentially further)
  • Experience of engaging successfully with challenging people, for example people who have complex needs, people who are reluctant to discuss their needs, and people who are angry and confused

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.

For further information, or to apply, please visit our website via the ‘Apply’ button. 

Closing date: 11pm, Tuesday 31st May 2022. Interviews: Wednesday 8th June 2022.

St Giles will guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria set out in the Job Description for the vacancy.

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.

This role will require the post holder to obtain an honorary contract with the NHS.  An honorary contract enables St Giles Trust staff to work in the hospital and access hospital IT systems. 

At the time of writing a covid vaccination is not a requirement for this role, but as the post is NHS funded there is a possibility that at some time this may be a requirement. 

If a covid vaccination becomes a requirement for this role then St Giles will consult with staff who are affected and may need to end the contracts of those unable to meet the new requirement
