Shift work

We operate 24/7, 365 days a year, so as a Field Monitoring Officer you'll be expected to work a range of shifts during the hours of 5pm-3am. This will include weekends and bank holidays, on a rotating roster pattern. Shifts are usually 5pm-1am, 6pm-2am, and 7pm-3am.

What you'll do:

  • Our Field Monitoring Officer role involves going into the homes of those on curfew, whether that's alone or alongside a colleague.
  • Then it'll be your responsibility to install, calibrate and decommission monitoring equipment, so that the person on curfew can be detected within the boundaries of their property.
  • You'll check and clean equipment when it's issued and on collection, and quarantine any equipment that needs to be held for evidence.
  • Responding to priority visits, you'll be there to address any incidents and liaise with the central office over any issues or subject breaches.
  • As you need to travel regularly and continuously throughout your shift, we'll provide you with your own company vehicle.

Your experience:

It's essential that you have a full UK driving licence as you'll be driving to individual's homes. You'll also:

  • Be physically fit as you'll be attaching and removing curfew equipment.
  • Have experience working in a customer facing role, so you'll know how to deal with challenging conversations.
  • Be a strong communicator with great interpersonal skills and a high standard of written English.
  • Be able to work flexibly on a shift rota basis and work well both as part of a team and on your own.

What's in it for you?

As well as a generous basic salary, we'll give you 23 day's holiday, a company car, company matched pension scheme and access to a variety of voluntary benefit options. These include a share save scheme, life assurance, holiday buy and many more designed to suit your own personal lifestyle, such as retail, health and wellbeing and leisure discounts.

You'll be joining a network of some of the most experienced, innovative and dedicated people in the country - the opportunities to learn new skills, develop in your career and grow and as we grow are almost endless. Our mission is to help you realise your potential - whatever that means to you.
