Linsey Waters

Linsey Waters – probation officer

Linsey is a probation officer. She currently designs and implements alternative approaches to offender management for high risk offenders in Wales.

Linsey re-assessed her ambition to ‘do art’ and gave up a fine art degree, after being asked to paint wearing a blindfold with ink and a broccoli stem (true story). Subsequently she spent her twenties dipping in and out of the hospitality, recruitment and sales sectors. At 27 (and fairly disillusioned) she left London and a stressful job in recruitment to travel the world, but somehow ended up in Wales, settled with a partner and her first mortgage!

After reluctantly falling back into recruitment, Linsey started to volunteer with a substance misuse provider and realised that she really enjoyed working with people with challenging personal circumstances. After spotting an ad in the local paper – she applied to re-train as a probation officer. Linsey qualified at 30 and had her first of 3 sons the same year. Since then she has worked in generic offender management, high risk offender management, Youth Offending Service, Courts and Prisons. She has a dog, a cat and the aforementioned children with her partner and has dabbled in property development for about 10 years.

Linsey has experience in:

  • Recruitment
  • Project management
  • Change management
  • Criminal Justice 
  • Property development  and management
  • Relationship management/stakeholder engagement
  • Report/bid writing
