The Parole Commissioners for Northern Ireland are an independent body, critical to the process of deciding whether offenders eligible for parole are safe to release back into the community and whether prisoners on licence recalled to prison can be re-released. Public protection is always paramount and painstaking risk assessment is the key to making a robust decision.
As a Registered Consultant Psychiatrist or a Chartered/Registered Forensic and/or Clinical Psychologist with training and experience in forensic risk assessments and experience of working in a forensic setting you have the insight and knowledge to help the Parole Commissioners make the necessary informed judgement. Every case is different and steeped in complexity. Time commitment will vary dependent on the number of cases undertaken. Commissioners receive a set payment for each completed case.
THE DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF APPLICATIONS IS 12 NOON ON FRIDAY 18 NOVEMBER 2016. LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
