Salary: £12,000 - Three year fixed term period (Approximately 10-20 days per annum)
Ref: GSe68828

Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) is an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). As set out in our Business Strategy ‘Shaping our Future’ our vision is to work together to protect the public and help people lead law-abiding and positive lives. The strategy sets out the outcomes we will achieve to deliver the vision, and the principles we will work to in doing so.

The Agency Board is chaired by a Non-Executive Director. Non-Executive Directors are appointed by the Department’s Permanent Secretary, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Agency’s Chief Executive following the normal rules of public appointments. The Agency Board sets the vision and strategy for the Agency to meet Ministerial objectives and expectations. The day to day management of HMPPS is the responsibility of an Executive Management Committee.

We are looking to appoint up to two Non-Executive Directors, one of whom will chair the Audit and Risk Committee. As a result, the key responsibilities and corresponding personal experiences required may vary slightly.
