Job Description

The Regional Manager supports the Head of Region and Programme Director to set the culture, ambition and quality of the programme in their region. As such, the Regional Manager is a critical bridge between the central head office team and the regional team. For this, communication, teamwork and feedback skills are essential. 

 

They will line manage Mentoring Prison Officers (MPOs), supporting their development so that they can effectively support the participants on the wings. This will include delivering training on coaching, mentoring and adult facilitation. 

  

They will take responsibility for the performance of the participants in prisons across their region and develop staff and systems as appropriate to maximise participants’ impact on prisoners and the prison system.  

 

They will manage relationships with key stakeholders in prisons - ensuring the smooth running of the programme across the region - escalating to the Head of Region as needed.

 

It is imperative that the Regional Manager shares the passion, drive and work ethic to make Unlocked’s vision a reality. Enthusing and empowering others will be critical. This centres around staff of prisons in the local area, both before and during placement and also includes local organisation and individuals. Gaining the support of local stakeholders is key for the programme’s success. 

 

This is a fixed-term contract of one year (with the possibility of extension). Like all our contract roles, this is a great opportunity to get a taste of Unlocked and we are very supportive of applicants seeking a sabbatical to experience a different organisation.
