Operations Manager

A full-time management job at Prison Radio Association in London
Posted 20 December 2019, 1.11pm est


The Prison Radio Association (PRA) is an award-winning charity that has revolutionised the way we communicate in the criminal justice sector.

We developed and run National Prison Radio (NPR), the world’s first national radio station for prisoners. NPR provides practical advice, support and inspirational content to people in prison, encouraging the audience to see prison as a place of positive change. The service is available in the cells of over 80,000 prisoners across England, Wales and Scotland via in-cell television.

We are also developing digital media to offer audio and video to people impacted by the criminal justice system outside prison, such as the family and friends of people in prison.

We also create bespoke campaigns, films, podcasts and audio packages for a wide range of clients, including national BBC radio networks, statutory bodies, government departments and the wider charitable sector. In recent years we have been named Production Company of the Year at the Audio Production Awards, and won Gold at the ARIAS.


Being a multi award-winning charity isn’t easy, and there’s a huge amount of work that takes place behind the scenes to ensure our people are well looked-after and the work environment functions well.

The Operations Manager may also see themselves as the PRA’s ‘Head of Happiness’. We’re looking for someone who’s well-organised, has fantastic attention to detail and is great at relationship building. Their role is to understand and maintain all the moving parts that go towards creating our highly-functioning operation. This means being in charge of our IT provision and being the lead contact for our IT facilities management contractors; being able to troubleshoot when problems arise; ensuring our HR processes are the best they can be, and that our people are well looked-after and safe; supporting with the organisation’s administration and ensuring the team has the right tools for the job.

In short, you’ll be the PRA’s ‘Person Friday’ and will quickly become the most popular member of the team!
