Good luck to whomever decides to sample the delights of 'Skeggy'. As the old saying goes, 'there are other agencies available' and it's probably as good a time as any to talk about the issue.
In the current shitty climate, many colleagues just want to get out and find other career paths, but for some that might not be an option. As illogical as it may seem, just as CRC's appear only too keen to wave off experienced staff, they are desperately seeking experienced officers through specialist recruitment agencies. I was approached by one a couple of weeks ago and here is what was said. Oh, and before anyone asks, I'm not getting a 'cut' and don't do advertising:-
I appreciate the current climate as I am an avid reader of your blog, plus I am currently speaking to my contacts within the privately run CRC’s which help me to get a picture of what is happening.
I can say that we have had people mention this to us when we contact them to register them with our agency. I would always say that change is a difficult thing, but that there are other CRC’s who they could work for that would help them through this and possibly change their point of view. I recently placed a temporary PSO in to a CRC, they are extremely happy because they are desperately needed.
I feel that with the control of becoming a contract worker, the flexibility to work and retrain, the comfort of knowing that they can leave when they want to or move offices if needed, this would provide someone with more confidence about going back in probation work.
I will end by saying that I know the probation staff do care about their job, they genuinely care about the people they are trying to help. If we can help them by meeting the criteria they require in a contract role, then we can help them get back in to a job where they can help people whilst staying in control of their working situation.
I have put together something to be posted if you can. I appreciate any help you can give us to keep good probation staff in employment.
During the changes which have been happening across the Probation sector, affecting both CRCs and the NPS across England and Wales, Servoca have been working with Probation skilled staff to help them find employment whilst transitioning into new roles and careers.
We work closely with CRC’s and in some areas, the NPS, to help balance the workload whilst moving in to the new delivery model by providing experienced probation staff. We aim to help people who are choosing/facing redundancy gain temporary or permanent employment whilst re-training or deciding on their next career move.
We are currently working on temporary PO and PSO roles, as well as numerous other roles associated with the potential new and current operating models, and in order to do this we are looking for candidates to help fill these roles.
