ABOUT THE PRISON RADIO ASSOCIATION (PRA)
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.
OVERALL PURPOSE OF JOB:
As key members of the PRA team, our Radio Producers are the people at the front line, using their highly-developed production skills to create life-changing content behind bars.
Our staff team in HMP Styal work with people serving prison sentences to support their peers using the power of radio. This brand new role has two key purposes: to develop and produce radio to support women approaching the end of their sentences to successfully resettle in the community after release; and to support the women we work with in HMP Styal to understand and fulfil their ambitions while they’re working with us and after their release from prison. This job encompasses big-picture support of women across the prison estate, right through to individual support of the people we work with directly in HMP Styal.
You'll work in a highly stimulating environment with women who have stories and experiences to share with others in similar situations using the power of radio. You’ll get to understand their individual circumstances and help them to successfully navigate the path out of prison and towards successful futures.
