Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

At Oasis Restore we recognise that our team is strengthened by the knowledge, experience and insights people from a wide range of backgrounds can bring. These beliefs and values are underpinned by decades of work and experience that Oasis has had in a wide range of sectors including education, housing and youth-work supported further by a wide range of independent research and studies elsewhere which evidence that creating teams with diverse experience and perspectives, and encouraging healthy debate, reduces the risk of ‘blind spots’ that often form barriers to success.

Oasis Restore aim is to attract and retain the very best diverse talent and role models to help create an innovative, caring and extraordinary working environment for our staff, that enables us to deliver exceptional, caring and psychologically informed learning experience for our students.

We would therefore like to encourage applications from people with varied skillsets, life experiences, and from different backgrounds and sectors to help shape Oasis Restore. If you can demonstrate some of the criteria and believe you have what it takes, then we’d love to hear from you.

Given the nature of our work we also welcome applications from candidates with the following lived experience:

• Experience of working successfully with vulnerable children who sometimes have multiple and complex needs.

• Personal experience of the criminal justice system, or lived experience of the issues facing this client group (i.e. involved in gangs or knife crime).

• Knowledge of the issues facing this client group, such as gangs, knife crime, social exclusion and isolation, child criminal exploitation, adverse childhood experiences and trauma.

• Ability to actively listen and motivate young people.

• Personal experience of the Care system

• Ability to be a positive role model, demonstrating the virtues of a crime-free life to young people.

We’re also very happy to answer any questions you may have so please don’t hesitate to get in touch at
