If you enjoy learning and are looking for a role that can make a long-lasting impact, this could be the role for someone like you.

We’re looking for people with the empathy, patience and resilience to help people resettle into the community. You’ll be interested in protecting victims and offenders’ families. Having a curious nature is an advantage.

You’ll have strong communication skills (verbal and written) and the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of individuals, including those who may present difficult or aggressive behaviour.

You’ll have the ability to motivate others in a diverse and challenging environment. You must have an understanding of, and commitment to, equality and diversity.
