Location: HMP Exeter
Hours: Full time, 35 hours per week
Salary: £17,675 - £18,685 per annum (depending on experience)
The main focus of this role is to provide high quality, consistent and essential administrative support for the Integrated Substance Misuse Service at HMP Exeter. You’ll build and maintain effective working relationships with team members, community services and other prisons in order to contribute to the high quality handover and risk management process for service users entering and leaving the prison.
Key tasks will include:
* Using the service database to input and report on data, statistics and other relevant information
* Preparing and maintaining paperwork related to the various services provided for service users
* Communicating effectively with other teams and colleagues within the Prison and relevant community links
* Undertaking a wide range of administrative tasks on a daily basis
What we’re looking for
This role will suit someone with previous team administrative experience who thrives in a busy environment where they can organise their own workload and priorities. To be successful in this role, you’ll need to be an excellent communicator, able to build effective working relationships with a range of people. You’ll have excellent all round administration, typing and IT skills and will be highly proficient at using Microsoft Office - particularly Word, Excel, and Outlook.
In addition, you’ll have a good general standard of education, which may be enhanced by an additional office, administration or customer service qualification. You’ll also be keen to continue to develop your administration skills and experience, and will demonstrate a high level of integrity and enthusiasm for working within the structured environment of a prison.
Whilst previous experience in a similar substance misuse and/or custodial environment is not essential, it would be an advantage. More important is a genuine interest in substance misuse services and a positive, recovery focused attitude.
