Rob, a probation case manager

“There is opportunity for development and I am working towards becoming a qualified Senior Case manager. This involves intensive training, a degree at Sheffield Hallam University, and professional discussions, alongside my current responsibilities. This is tough going at times but I feel I’m learning a lot and making positive progress.”

Adam, Community Payback placement co-ordinator

“Community Payback offers offenders the chance to experience work life, the rewards it can bring, friendships and positive mentors and feedback. When done correctly, I believe there is no better way to re-engage offenders back into society than Community Payback.”

Suhail, a probation case manager

“I joined probation to make a difference, to support change and help people become better humans. I have seen first-hand the difficulties faced in my community and I am grateful to be able to help people and reduce crime. I take great satisfaction from the work we carry out and I am confident in saying we make our area a safer place.”
