About the company

Whilst probation services have been a long standing and successful part of the Criminal Justice System; the introduction of CRC’s in 2014 to manage approx. 70% of the offending population means that we are still in the midst of transformation as a private company (Interserve), but who already pride themselves on delivering effective and efficient public services.

 
Interserve's vision is to redefine the future for people and places. We are one of the world's foremost support services and construction companies, operating in the public and private sectors in the UK and internationally. We offer advice, design, construction, equipment, facilities management and front-line public services. Interserve is based in the UK and is listed in the FTSE 250 index. We have gross revenue of £3.6 billion and a workforce of 80,000 people worldwide
 
The vacancies are casual and successful candidates will be expected to travel within Cheshire and will be based in either Chester, Crewe or Ellesmere Port areas .
