Regional Manager (Midlands)

The deadline for this vacancy has passed.

Unlocked Graduates exists to break cycles of reoffending, with a particular focus on
breaking the link between disadvantage and reoffending.

Currently, prison is not a place that successfully does this: the average prisoner has 16 previous convictions and 48 per cent of prisoners re-offend within a year of release. This is the problem that Unlocked Graduates exists to fix.

The Regional Manager supports the Head of Region and Programme Director to
set the culture, ambition and quality of the programme in their region. As such, the
Regional Manager is a critical bridge between the central head office team and the
regional team. For this, communication, teamwork and feedback skills are essential.

They will line manage Mentoring Prison Officers (MPOs), supporting their
development so that they can effectively support the participants on the wings. This
will include delivering training on coaching, mentoring and adult facilitation. They will take responsibility for the performance of the participants in prisons across
their region and develop staff and systems as appropriate to maximise participantsā€™
impact on prisoners and the prison system. They will manage relationships with key stakeholders in prisons – ensuring the smooth running of the programme across the region – escalating to the Head of Region as needed.
