Survey launched to identify workforce challenges

The survey includes areas on digital skills and inclusion within the workplace.

A national survey of the criminal justice sector has been launched to identify emerging workforce challenges.

Non-profit Skills for Justice has launched the ‘2023 State of Workforce Survey’ in an effort to clarify critical skills and development shortages at an individual, organisational and systemic level within the criminal justice sector – including policing, probation, prisons and courts.

The survey is a mix of free-text and multiple-choice questions and should take around 15 minutes to complete. Questions are asked on areas including digital skills, inclusion within the workplace, management and training.

For every completed response Skills for Justice will donate 20p to Mind’s Blue Light Together service.

Jon Parry, Head of Research at Skills for Justice, said: “Given the current challenges that the sector is facing, the intelligence to better understand the complex skills issues that employers and the government need to address is more important than ever.”

The survey is open to all employees working in operational, non-operational or managerial roles at any level of seniority working in the UK justice sector. Responses will be treated in confidence.

You can complete the survey here.
