About the job

Detention Engagement Teams (DETs) are a dynamic and responsive team, working as part of Detention, Progression and Returns Command (DPRC) to enhance the quality and frequency of engagements between Home Office and the people entering Immigration Removal Centres (IRC). The successful candidate will be part of an exciting initiative within the Home Office which will be both rewarding and energising.

The DET team operate within Immigration Removal Centres (IRCs), using face-to-face interaction to build relationships with those in detention and provide an important on-site link between people in detention and their case working teams; enhancing the quality and frequency of engagements between the Home Office and the people entering IRCs. Based within the centres, engaging with those in detention and on-site healthcare providers and suppliers, DETs are better placed to ensure that vulnerability issues are identified and managed at the earliest opportunity.

You will require excellent interpersonal skills to deal with different, and sometimes difficult situations. Self-confidence, organisation skills and personal integrity are also required within this challenging environment of a busy desk with at times, a high volume of work.

The DET work on a roster system with shifts generally between 7.30am and 7:30pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 5pm on Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays. This role attracts an Annualised Hours Allowance (AHW) which includes weekend and Public Holiday working.

Due to the nature of this role, this position is not suitable for hybrid working.

Successful candidates will be expected to be vetted at enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks and undertake Personal Safety Training (PST).
