Birmingham Youth Offending Service is the largest metropolitan Youth Offending Service in the country and is identified as the most complex by the Youth Justice Board.

They will be able to work effectively at both a strategic and operational level and be committed to developing and improving our services, working in collaboration with the young people who use them.

Interviews will take place over 30th November 2020 and 1st December 2020. Previous applicants for this post from the last advertisement in September 2020 need not reapply.
