The Parole Board Seeks Diverse, Independent, Psychology & Judicial Members 1433 views8 applications

The recruitment campaign for new parole board members is now open.

One of the key aims of this recruitment campaign is to start to redress the shortage of black and minority ethnic members.

The campaign is open to three membership types – independent, psychologist, and retired judicial – and the campaign for independent members will be regional, focused in the North of England.

It is important for an organisation to reflect the community it serves, and the Parole Board is determined to increase the diversity of its membership.

Caroline Corby, Chair of the Parole Board has publicly spoken about the Parole Board’s commitment to increasing BAME representation amongst its membership.

While the Board has a good balance in terms of gender, with over 50% of the current membership of around 240 being women, only 5% identify as BAME and there is presently no representation from the black community.

Over the next three years, they have committed to an ongoing programme of outreach and recruitment to address this issue. In order to make this as effective as possible, they will be running targeted recruitment campaigns in specific regions of England and Wales. The 2019 campaign will be the first of these campaigns and will be followed by campaigns in the Midlands and South East over the next two years.

In the meantime, please send all questions to the below email – workwithus@paroleboard.gov.uk.
