Our client, a global provider for many different business support services, are looking for passionate and confident individuals to help with a critical element of work relating to the Ministry of Justice.
As a Field Officer, you’ll be part of a friendly, welcoming team, who’ll support you to learn and develop, as together you help to make our country a safer place.
On a day-to-day basis, you’ll head off to visit subjects in their own homes to install, calibrate and decommission monitoring equipment.
You’ll either work alone or alongside a monitoring support officer, to help the Ministry of Justice to track individuals in the local area and support them to complete their sentences outside of prison.
No previous experience is required in this role, but you must be able to build trusting relationships with people and be confident and resilient when dealing with a wide variety of different people.
You know that everyone deserves respect and not to be judged.
