Job description

The organisation

Unlocked Graduates is an award-winning charity which exists to break cycles of re-offending by developing outstanding individuals to lead rehabilitation in prisons and throughout society.

At the core of our mission is a leadership development programme that brings top graduates into prisons to work as frontline prison officers for two years. This programme includes mentoring, work placements in partner organisations and a fully-funded master’s degree, while taking on the full duties of a frontline prison officer.

The project grew out of a recommendation in the Coates’ Review of prison education. Participants are selected through a rigorous and competitive recruitment process which is raising the profile of the prison officer role. This year the scheme was ranked 51st in the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list.

The role

We are looking for an innovative and dynamic individual to join the recruitment team. You will play an important role in attracting the highest quality applicants to work in prisons with Unlocked Graduates.

The Attraction Officer is responsible for supporting the delivery of our recruitment strategy to attract high-calibre candidates to the role of a prison officer and guide them through all stages of the process: from initial attraction of applicants through university careers and online events, to supporting candidates through the selection process and up until the point that they start the programme.

You will play a key role in building our brand and increasing awareness of this career opportunity for graduates. The position offers an exciting mix of hands-on marketing, organising and running events, building relationships with a wide variety of people, data analysis and coming up with innovative ways to improve our recruitment. You will be the key point of contact for candidates to the programme and play a key role in how the brand is viewed and respected in the marketplace.

You will join a hard-working team with opportunities every day for new achievements and experiences.
