Role model, negotiator, referee, educator, influencer, life changer – as a prison officer, no two days are the same.
You will work with people from all kinds of backgrounds to create a safe and secure prison environment. You will support adult offenders with rehabilitation while protecting the public too.
You will play a leading role in offenders’ lives, meeting regularly with a small caseload of 5-6 offenders. You will manage their development, from learning new skills to participation in education programmes, so there is a better chance they won’t reoffend on release.
You will also have the opportunity to grow your career, specialising in different areas such as negotiation, supporting prisoners at risk and resolving incidents.
It can be a tough job, but in return you will receive great pay, training, benefits and have the support of a strong team.
