Prison Support Role
HMP Portland and HMP The Verne
Up to £20,890 (includes additional allowance and unsocial hours) + excellent benefits
Keeping a prison running smoothly and safely takes many things - good judgement, common sense and responsibility to name a few. Above all, though, it takes teamwork. And as part of our Operational Support team you’ll be right at the heart of it.
Working in a busy, professional environment, and operating on a shift-pattern that will include regular night and weekend work, you’ll support the day-to-day running of the establishment. Your role will see you involved in everything from patrol and gate duties to managing deliveries, supervising visitors, monitoring phone calls and CCTV. Depending on your prison, your level of contact with prisoners will vary – this will range from processing documentation and property in the reception unit to supervising them during movement around the prison.
In return you’ll receive a good salary, Civil Service pension, season ticket loan, generous annual leave, opportunity to join a 14-month funded level 2 apprenticeship qualification, the chance to progress with the national Prison and Probation service and many other benefits. To see if you have the natural strengths and preferences to become part of the Operational Support team, start your application by registering your details and completing our game-based assessment online. If successful, you will be invited for an interview with us.
