Justice Practice Officer
The Centre for Justice Innovation is looking to recruit an ambitious individual to help us promote criminal justice reform in the United Kingdom. This is a permanent position. We seek to build a justice system which all of its citizens believe is fair and effective. We champion practice innovation and evidence-led policy reform in the UK’s justice systems. We are a registered UK charity.
You will work across a number of our exciting practice projects helping people on the ground to implement new ideas. Projects you could be working on include: supporting practitioners who work in point-of-arrest diversion schemes (youth and adult); co-designing toolkits with practitioners to support work with those who speak English as an additional language; supporting sites to develop problem-solving approaches in court; and, identifying the best new practice across the justice system in the UK.
You will have the opportunity to affect real change early in the criminal justice system and improve outcomes for the people caught up in it. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate their ability to make changes to frontline practice, motivate others and solve problems. Operational experience within the British justice system is essential.

The Centre for Justice Innovation is looking to recruit a capable and experienced research officer to help us build the evidence base for justice reform in the United Kingdom. You will join our growing research team in working to understand and support the work of innovative projects in the family justice and criminal justice systems. You will design and deliver quantitative and qualitative research, creating insights by working with service users and professionals at the front line of the system and analysing imperfect, real-world data sets. You will also work with our practice development and policy teams to translate your research findings into meaningful change.
In family justice, you will explore approaches like such as Family Drug and Alcohol Courts: problem-solving courts which aim to improve outcomes for children involved in care proceedings. They offer a new way of supporting parents to overcome issues like substance misuse, mental health and domestic abuse that have put their children at risk of serious harm. You will also contribute to research around criminal justice innovations such as youth diversion which seeks to prevent young people from getting caught up in the criminal justice system.
The Centre is a charity which seeks to build a justice system which every citizen believes is fair and effective. We champion innovative approaches and evidence-led policy reform in the UK’s justice systems.
