HMPPS is looking to fill a number of roles including probation service officers, case administrators, receptionists, Community Payback supervisors and Community Payback placement coordinators.
The Probation Service works with over 240,000 people on probation serving community sentences, and individuals who are pre or post-release from prison. Roles within the service help to support their rehabilitation and protect the public.
2023 data shows that 2,300+ people from a range of backgrounds have started a role in the Probation Service between June 2022 and June 2023. HMPPS is continuing to build on this work to attract a wave of recruits who are even more representative of the community they serve.
All roles are challenging and rewarding, with great training, support and opportunities for progression. Specific roles available London currently include Case administrators, Probation services officers, Community Payback supervisors and Community Payback placement coordinators.
Applications for all probation service roles are open now: https://jobs.justice.gov.uk/agency/probation-service/
There is also a call out for people with empathy and resilience who are interested in training to become probation officers. Through the training programme, candidates will gain a professional qualification, along with a competitive salary and generous leave.
When you start your training, you’ll be a probation services officer, learning on the job and studying to gain your fully funded Professional Qualification in Probation (PQiP). Eligibility requirements for the role include a Level 5 qualification, or above, such as an honours degree, a foundation degree or a diploma of higher education.
