New Vacancies Announced

Circles Coordinator (2 part-time positions) Dorset, Devon and Cornwall £30k pro-rata. Secondments welcome

Circles South West is an independent charity that works to prevent sexual abuse by reducing the risk of sexual re-offending through its innovative community-based approach. We provide Circles of Support and Accountability enabling local volunteers to positively impact on the safe integration of people who have sexually offended. Working closely with probation, police and prisons, we provide a complementary risk management approach, making our communities safer. We now seek to appoint two dynamic individuals to the following positions:


Dorset Circles Coordinator, 21 hours (3 days) per week, fixed term to March 2021

Part based at HMP The Verne, part home based in Dorset.

Applications required by 5pm, Friday 8th November

Interviews 4th or 5th December


Devon & Cornwall Circles Coordinator, 28 hours (4 days) per week, 12 months fixed term

Home based in Devon or Cornwall.

Applications required by 5pm, Friday 8th November

Interviews on Tuesday 19th November


Your risk management expertise will be informed by your substantial experience in working with people who present a significant risk of sexual harm. You will establish and coordinate Circles of Support and Accountability, train and support local volunteers, and work closely with public protection agencies to ensure the safe integration of people who have sexually offended. These exciting and challenging opportunities require talented, experienced individuals who are self-motivating and flexible in approach. Both positions require occasional travel across the south west region.
