|The Probation Service works with around 30,000 offenders a year to support their rehabilitation. |
Our staff have an important role to play – helping protect communities by supporting people to get back on track and make better life choices.
We are looking for people with empathy and resilience to help people change.
As a trainee probation officer, you will work with people on probation in the community and in prisons, supporting them to get back on track and turn their lives around. You’ll also gain a professional qualification with our support, along with a competitive salary, generous leave and great training.
As a probation services officer, you will undertake the full range of work with offenders before and after sentence, and in the community. This includes assessment, sentencing, managing offenders throughout their conviction and report-writing. There are plenty of other roles within the Probation Service too, from approved premises workers, to case admin workers.
Working in the Probation Service is rewarding but can be challenging, as you often work with people with complex needs. But you’ll receive full training and be supported every step of the way as you progress in this rewarding and valued career.
