"I like the fact that Sanctuary don't just put me in a position and dump me!

I feel like it's all tailored to my needs. We go through my CV, through the job description together. I feel like my consultant goes through the journey with me."

Sanctuary offers more than a job search service; we can support you through your criminal justice career.

This involves:

Long term relationships with both our clients and candidates.

Our low staff turnover offers a consistent service that our candidates can rely on. The consultant you initially speak to when you register will be your contact at Sanctuary throughout your placement and, potentially, for many years as your career develops. Our candidates often feed back their appreciation of the knowledge and understanding their consultant has, not just of their profession, but of their individual career history and requirements. This makes it easier and quicker to match you to the right job each time.

Exclusive access to jobs.

With nationwide coverage and as a trusted supplier to criminal justice employers, we are confident in providing recruitment options in even the most obscure roles. We have even had a locum probation officer placed in the Falkland Islands!

An expert understanding.

We recognise that it takes an individual with a unique set of skills to work with offenders, or those who are recovering from using drugs or alcohol. We work closely with senior criminal justice practitioners who are able to advise our consultants on important issues and challenges within the sector. Our in-depth knowledge allows us to successfully match our candidates and employers, giving us the expertise to work with the whole range of criminal justice professionals at all levels, in both qualified and non-qualified roles.

Getting you the job you want, quicker.

Our dedicated compliance team will organise registration certificates, references and immunisations and provide appropriate training to ensure you are prepared ahead of your start date. Sanctuary is a DBS umbrella body, enabling online DBS applications to be carried out in-house, often resulting in a faster turnaround. 

Training opportunities.

In some cases you may need additional skills to pursue your ideal role. We can help you find suitable training courses on a range of relevant topics, helping you develop your career.
If you want to build a successful criminal justice career, contact Sanctuary today.


I feel that my consultant knows me and goes through the journey with me, which I think is really important.

CHARITY MWANGARA, BAND 6 ADDICTIONS NURSE marks for all the professionalism of the Sanctuary team...

“Since I started working with your agency, the support I get from my consultant Alex Herd has made a huge difference in making me feel that I am not just a number bringing in money. He has made all the arrangements for immunisation, training and was communicating at every stage.

I had never had this before from other agencies. He placed me in suitable roles and he also checks on me now and again to find out if I am happy and if there is anything I need support with. 

Top marks for all the professionalism of the Sanctuary team.”
