The successful candidates will have skills in training and supervising individuals and previous experience in working with offenders would be an advantage. They must have a good understanding of the needs of offenders and be able to work in a non-judgemental manner using pro social modelling skills.
They must also have a good understanding of Health and Safety legislation and be able to demonstrate the ability to work safely and within national and local health and safety procedures.
