There’s potential in everyone. Bring it out.

As a probation officer, you can change lives. Working with people on probation in the community and in prisons, you’ll support 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.

The role of a probation officer is rewarding but can be challenging – as you often work with people with complex needs, and no two people are the same. In addition, you’ll be working full-time alongside studying – but you’ll be supported every step of the way.

Becoming a probation officer is rewarding but comes with its challenges. You often have to deal with difficult situations and behaviours. But that’s also how you can measure your growth.
