Why work for Community Justice Scotland?

At Community Justice Scotland (CJS) we understand that our colleagues are the most important asset we have.  We use a values based approach in everything we do and apply this throughout our recruitment which means we focus on the candidates values to ensure they share our passion for making a difference and contribute to our values based culture. 

Values based recruitment means we get to know candidates, what motivates them and their passions and interests.  By taking this approach, it helps us to know that the candidate will be a good fit for the organisation and the role they are applying for.  By aligning our values into our recruitment techniques, this allows candidates to show their own values allowing us to see who they are, the work they do, how they show up at work and the things that drive them and the reason they are drawn to our organisation.   More information on CJS’ values can be found in our Values for Action document.

Carer Positive

We understand that life is about family and home life as well as work, we know that if people feel supported to do what they need to do in work and outside of work they are able to show up fully. We operate a flexible working policy and a carers policy that is considered and caring for those that have additional responsibilities outside of work – we know that life isn’t always easily categorised into neat boxes of work and home – we know that they overlap and interact – our job at CJS is to best support our team so they can be at their best in all areas of life.
