Head of Training and Business Development
Flexible Location

The Organisation

One Small Thing is striving for positive change across the justice system by implementing small things in a big way.

We provide gender responsive, trauma-informed programmes within the prison and community sectors that consider the individual caught in a cycle of crime and incarceration, with the aim of humanising their experiences. We want to shift the voice of blame and judgement and the ‘what’s wrong with them?’ line of questioning to a kinder, respectful and healing approach that asks, ‘What has happened to them?’

Our name reflects the value of those small things – empathy, compassion, respect – and their combined power to make a big difference to the individual - and to society as a whole.

To support our efforts, we are now looking for a Head of Training and Business Development to join us on a full-time basis.

- Salary of £45,000 - £50,000
- Play a role in changing the criminal justice system
- Join a welcoming and passionate team

This is a rewarding opportunity for a high calibre training professional with a great management style and experience of working in the criminal justice or social care sectors to join our ground-breaking organisation as we strive to make a positive difference.

Your expertise will enable us to reach countless more women and children who would benefit from access to our services, empowering us to make vital changes to the justice system and beyond.

So, if you want to play an instrumental role in influencing systemic change alongside a passionate team, this is the role for you.

Additionally, you will work to identify opportunities for funding and be responsible for the development of funding partnerships, proposals and bids.

- Experience of delivering training and consultancy
