Helping keep the public safe. Giving people the chance to turn their lives around. Building a rewarding professional career. Become an AP residential worker and be part of the National Probation Service working with offenders to support their rehabilitation.


The role

We’re looking for an Approved Premises (AP) Residential Worker to join us. An approved premise is a secure home for a range of offenders who are reintegrating into the community. You’ll be part of a team providing 24-hour cover at an AP, including security and monitoring services, which can include waking night duty and weekend work.


What you’ll be doing

In your role, you’ll be providing support to offenders and contribute to the delivery of purposeful activity to reduce their risk of reoffending, recall or breach of the condition of their license or Court Order. If you have the skills to communicate effectively with a wide range of people, including those who may present difficult behaviour, you could have what it takes. You’ll have the ability to demonstrate your good working literacy skills for reports, action plans, and more. 


What we’re looking for

You don’t need qualifications above GCSE (or the equivalent) level to excel with us. What you do need is the empathy, patience and resilience to help people change, paired with the motivation to protect communities, victims, and offender’s families. In return, you’ll be supported by dedicated colleagues and undertake induction and training, as well as the possibility of career progression. Work-based training includes safe systems of work, first aid, procedural training, safeguarding, management of offenders, and more. This role also allows for flexible working arrangements.

For a rewarding role that offers the chance to turn people’s lives around, apply now.
