A little bit about the role.....

We are looking for a Senior Project Officer to support the delivery of Samaritans work in prisons across the UK and Ireland, including through its renowned peer support scheme, the Listener scheme.  This is a key role within Samaritans growing Prisons & Justice programme and will work closely with other members of the prison team and external stakeholders to support and develop our work in prisons.

The role will work closely with the Prison Support Manager to ensure the high-quality delivery of our current Listener schemes as well as taking the lead on specific projects to improve and expand the support we provide to people in prison. Working with Samaritans staff and volunteers, prison staff, Listeners, and external stakeholders, this is a varied role where no two days are the same. You will be office-based but also spend time visiting prisons and volunteers to provide operational support as and when needed.

We’re looking for someone with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Ideally you will have experience of working with a wide range of stakeholders, including in senior roles, in a prison context or another similar environment. You are an excellent listener and you know how to ensure that operational needs are reflected in training materials. You know how to build positive relationships with volunteers and staff and you are sensitive to the challenges frontline staff face in challenging environments like a prison. You are persistent in working towards your goal even when facing resistance and difficulty. You will also need to have experience of planning and delivering office-based projects.

Former Listeners and others with lived experience of prison are encouraged to apply.
