Based in the County of Wiltshire, one of the most beautiful Counties in the UK and well known for it's proximity to many areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as the Cotswolds and the North Wessex Downs.  Wiltshire boasts excellent transport links to main cities such as London, Bristol and Cardiff as well as many beautiful and historic Market Towns with a competitive and developing housing market.

The Criminal Justice Liaison Service, known as the Wiltshire Liaison and Diversion Service, (LaDS) provides mental health assessments, identifies care pathways and where indicated diversion to individuals within the courts and Police custody suites.

The post holder will form part of the management structure of our developing and expanding service covering Magistrates Courts, Crown Courts and Police custody suites in Wiltshire.

We have two posts available on Substantive and one Fixed Term for 12 months.

The successful applicant will be working with people within the criminal justice system, where a potential mental health need, learning disability or other health or social care vulnerability is suspected and further assessment is indicated, to inform disposal of the case and to identify robust care pathways. This involves a commitment to close partnership working with both statutory and voluntary sector agencies, and a commitment to working with a complex and diverse range of individuals with varying needs. The post holder will be expected to supervise the CJLS Support Workers and advise on the more complex cases.
