Are you dedicated to improving the lives of socially excluded people within the criminal justice system? Are you able to build trusting, supportive relationships, whilst maintaining professional boundaries? Are you ready to develop and deliver services that can make all the difference?  

Then join LandWorks as our new Resettlement Manager.

LandWorks is a successful and award winning 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 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 supporting access to housing, financial advice, 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 resettlement support that we believe has implications for the wider criminal justice system.

We require someone who has a good 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 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.

The role would suit someone who is already working at this level, or is ready to move up in their career, taking on a more senior role and with the opportunity to shape the delivery of services at the charity.

LandWorks takes safeguarding seriously and will seek references and undertake DBS checks for new employees when 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.
