Employment Officer (Probation in the Community)
“Working Well” is an employment support programme for people with convictions (in the community and prison) funded by the European Social Fund (ESF).
The programme will operate across Northern Ireland until March 2022 in partnership with Probation Board for Northern Ireland (PBNI) and the Northern Ireland Prison Service (NIPS). It is predicated on the principle that securing employment (or progressing towards education and training) is the single most significant contributor factor towards helping to reduce the likelihood of reoffending.
All Working Well’s Employment Officers and (Enrolment Officers) will be employed by NIACRO but based within PBNI Offices. This will help to maximise opportunities to receive referrals from PBNI and update Probation staff on participants’ progress.

Hours: 35 hours per week
Duration: Until March 2022 (Subject to Funding)
