Job Vacancies

LandWorks is a ground-breaking training charity that supports those in prison or at risk of going to prison (‘trainees’) away from crime and back into their community through intensive, long-term placements. LandWorks started in 2013 with one member of staff, four prisoners and a seed of an idea. Now with a strong infrastructure and staff team in place, we have transformed a derelict quarry into the 2-acre LandWorks training centre with three thriving commercial enterprises and have an exemplary track record of reducing reoffending and changing lives.

Are you dedicated to improving the lives of people within the criminal justice system? Are you highly experienced in developing and delivering services that can make all the difference?  Are you able to build trusting, supportive relationships, whilst maintaining professional boundaries? 

Then join LandWorks as our new Resettlement and Graduate Support Manager.

LandWorks is a small but successful charity based in South Devon that works with people in prison or at risk of going to prison to aid their rehabilitation and resettlement into the community.  The charity is based just outside Totnes on the beautiful Dartington Hall estate where we have built our training centre, workshops, market garden and offices.

This important new role has two key functions:

  • lead the planning and delivery of practical resettlement support for our beneficiaries while they are on placement at LandWorks, including access to housing, financial, employment and health services.
  • develop and deliver a programme of on-going, flexible support for our beneficiaries after they have completed their LandWorks placement.

This is an exciting opportunity to help build a comprehensive model of support that we believe has implications for the wider criminal justice system.

We require someone who has a very strong understanding of the barriers and challenges facing people in the criminal justice system. Someone who can be hands-on, working closely with individual beneficiaries, while also supporting the strategic development of our services.  Above all, we need someone who can work positively with our beneficiaries, partners and as part of our small but dedicated team.

LandWorks takes safeguarding seriously and will seek references and undertake DBS checks for new employees where appropriate. However, we positively welcome applications from people with relevant lived experience of the criminal justice system and we undertake not to discriminate unfairly against people with previous criminal convictions. We do not ask for disclosure of previous convictions at the initial application stage. We can arrange a confidential conversation prior to applying if you have any questions.
