There’s potential in everyone. Bring it out.

As a probation officer, you can change lives. Working with offenders in the community and in prisons, you’ll support them to get back on track and turn their lives around. You’ll enable them to make better life choices, reduce the chance they’ll reoffend – and you’ll take pride in protecting society against the effects of crime. You’ll also gain a professional qualification with our support, along with a competitive salary, generous leave and great training.

Being a probation officer is more than a job, it’s a profession and who you are as a person. You have to understand the lives of the offenders you work with, and with that comes so many varied experiences. It’s a job you can really take pride in.
