Job description

Spark Inside is an award-winning charity that has transformed the lives of over 1,000 people living and working in our prisons. We have pioneered coaching in prisons, showing the value of coaching to change lives and systems. In the next decade, we set out to make coaching available to anyone who wants it in the justice system and aim to reach 10,000 young people with our coaching programmes.

We are one of the first organisations to take life coaching to people living and working in prison and to use systems coaching to bring together staff and prisoners in UK prisons. Our expert coaches are qualified and trained professionals. In addition to developing and delivering innovative coaching programmes, we are also committed to working with parliamentarians and government officials to influence criminal justice policy, and shift the perception of people in prison, platforming their voices and highlighting their unlocked potential.

In addition to our coaching programmes for people in prison, we have also begun coaching prison staff and young people in the community.

The Service Delivery Manager role is ideal for someone who thrives when building relationships with young people, is highly organised, and has the passion and drive to achieve outcomes in challenging environments. This is an exciting on-the-ground position, working mainly within prisons in Greater London and Kent, as well as in the community in partnership with other organisations. You will be responsible for engaging young people in prison and in the community to participate in Spark Inside’s life coaching workshops and one-to-one coaching. You will also manage our team of freelance coaches and play a key role in project management and smooth running of our coaching programmes.

To succeed in the role, you will need to build and maintain relationships with people at all levels in the criminal justice system including prisoners, prison staff of various levels and commissioners. You will also work in partnership with Youth Offending Services, the National Probation Service in the community, and other organisations as Spark Inside’s partnership work evolves.

Please see attached job description for more information and how to apply.
