Summary

We are currently looking for new members to join the Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) at 12 prisons across the East of England.

Detailed description

We are currently looking for new members to join the Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) at 12 prisons across the East of England (HMP Bedford, Bure, Chelmsford, Five Wells, Highpoint, Hollesley Bay, Littlehey, Peterborough, The Mount, Warren Hill, Wayland & Whitemoor). The IMB helps to ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained. Applicants do not need any special qualifications or experience as we will provide all necessary training and support. Candidates need to be over 18 years of age and live within approximately 30 miles of the prison. You need to be enthusiastic, open minded, possess effective communication skills and have the ability to exercise sound, objective judgement.


We encourage applications from people from minority ethnic communities, young people, those of working age, and people with disabilities, as these groups are under-represented on our existing Boards.


This is an unpaid, voluntary role, but we pay your travel expenses and in certain circumstances, some loss of earnings and childcare/carer costs.

Interviews are expected to be conducted using Zoom.


The time commitment is approximately 2 to 3 visits per month.


Closing date for applications is 22 January 2023. Campaign reference, to be quoted on application, is 1288/East Cluster/2022.


Please visit the IMB website.
