Parole Review Committee

 

The Parole Review Committee (PRC) is seeking to appoint two new members.

The PRC is the independent body that protects the public by assessing prisoners and deciding whether they can safely be released into the community, with conditions. Members are required to read various reports that have been produced by experienced professionals and decisions are made in small teams.

The PRC is keen to hear from people interested in spending a few days per month to undertake this unique and important role. Knowledge of the criminal justice system or experience of conducting risk assessments is desirable. Previous experience of law, social work, psychology or another related field would be an asset but not essential. Training will be provided.

Applicants will be required to undertake an Enhanced DBS Check prior to appointment.

Contact parole@gov.gg for further information or send your CV with a covering email setting out why you think you would like to apply for the role, by Sunday 30 June 2024.
