CASS+ is now seeking to appoint a new CEO who will lead on the development and delivery of the CASS+ strategy.

Our vision is for advice and support to be available in every court across the UK. As a result, the successful candidate will take us into a new period of growth.

People often arrive at court alone, feeling powerless, trapped and terrified. We are free and independent of the system. We sit down and listen. We build trust and use our knowledge and connections to find solutions to complicated situations. We guide people towards positive change and stay by their side for as long as they want us by their side.

Reducing the risk of re-offending

This is how we can reduce the risk of re-offending and improve the lives of people experiencing the Justice System.

You will be leading a dedicated, passionate and knowledgeable team of staff, placements, interns and volunteers focussed on tailored solutions for people facing many disadvantages.

Tim Auburn, Chair of the Trustees, commented:

I am pleased to announce the start of our search for the next CEO at CASS+. This is an extremely rewarding role, leading a team of people who are passionate about giving anyone going through the Justice System another chance.

I am proud to be Chair of this charity which has so much to offer the justice sector.

If you share our values and have the passion, talent and experience, we would love to hear from you.

Do you embody these values?

Humanity first

People are not numbers. We combine empathy, compassion and knowledge to guide each person towards a positive future.


We actively listen so that each person gets tailored support at court and into life beyond.

Creative problem-solving

We use our extensive networks and experience of the Justice System to work with others to find solutions.


We’re ready and willing to help anyone. We can stay by their side for as long as they want us.


We never give up. We advocate for people and encourage them to find their own voice.

Growing charity

CASS+ has over 18 years’ experience focussing on social inequalities. We have 11 staff at five sites in five courts, around 21 volunteers, and, each year, we serve over 800 people through the Justice System and into life beyond.

If you share our vision and values and believe in giving people a future, we would love to hear from you.
