The Head of Region will be a critical bridge between the central head office team and the regional team, translating strategic priorities and centrally produced resources to work in the regional context. For this, communication, teamwork and feedback skills are essential.
As a member of the Extended Senior Leadership Team of Unlocked Graduates, and the most senior regional member of staff, it is imperative that the Head of Region shares the passion, drive and work ethic required to make Unlocked’s vision a reality. Enthusing and empowering others will be critical. This centres around governors of prisons in the local area, both before and during placement, and also includes local organisations and individuals. Gaining the support of important local stakeholders is key for the programme’s success.
The Head of Region will also be responsible for planning local events and training. They must be able to handle logistics with ease, so that this aspect of the role does not take a disproportionate amount of time. They have budgetary responsibility for spending in the region and must therefore be responsible and efficient.
