Unlocked Graduates is an award-winning organisation that aims to change the way we develop society’s future leaders, as well as how we think about prisons and prisoners by focusing on rehabilitation and addressing the damage and cost of reoffending.

The Role

Graduates voice across a range of digital, social and print channels. As a talented communications all-rounder,  you’ll have a good eye for assessing design and a dynamic voice able to communicate to wide audiences.

Collaborating with colleagues and external creative agencies, you will act as an internal journalist; seeking out  stories and producing engaging content that speaks to our hard-to-reach audience, persuading ambitious and  passionate graduates to consider taking on the challenge of fixing the prison system from within.

Using creative storytelling, writing, and design across all digital and social media channels, you will help tell the  untold story of prisons, correcting stereotypes and misconceptions around the prison officer role: Prisons  contain a dynamic professional workforce who are critical if we are to drive rehabilitation in our prisons.

You will build the reputation of Unlocked Graduates by bringing to life the inspiring stories of our changemaking programme participants like:

• KATRICE who pioneered Black History Month celebrations in her prison, creating important space for prisons  to discuss race and celebrate black culture
• DRÉ who noticed cells overheating during the summer months and gained funding through Unlocked to pilot a rollout of UV window film to reduce heat for prisoners
while retaining natural light
• LOUISA who set-up a prisoner-led television channel to improve cross-prison communication and which  proved an important communication tool during the Covid-19 crisis especially.

This Communications and Digital Officer role is an exciting opportunity to join a ground-breaking, disruptive  charity that is working to break cycles of reoffending. The role is critical to maximising our grads’ frontline and  systemic impact. You will help build networks of allies and collaborators across the criminal justice system and 
beyond who can accelerate the innovation occurring within the Unlocked community.
