Become a Probation Officer.
You could start work as a Probation Officer immediately if you have the right qualifications. These include:
If you have limited experience in probation, we can train you with a tailored learning plan.
Depending on your level of experience, we could offer you an extended induction so you can get familiar with the work we do. Then you’ll begin to handle the full range of offender management tasks for people who are under supervision.
It’s a secure career and you’ll enjoy Civil Service benefits including a pension, family-friendly policies, flexible working and generous annual leave allowance.
You’ll also have opportunities to develop. As you progress, you could move into different fields of work such as custodial, approved premises or even a training role.
