Job Description

Job Profile Job Advert

Working in a prison isn’t for everyone, but, if you’re one of the few with the right blend of qualities, it’s a secure and very rewarding career.

Firstly, you’ll need great communication skills. You’ll have to deal with all kinds of situations and your ability to listen well and make yourself clearly understood will be vital. Self-confidence, personal integrity and emotional intelligence are also a must, along with plenty of discipline and physical stamina too.

Together, these qualities will allow you to support prisoners with their rehabilitation, while also maintaining a safe and secure environment.

You will also be required to work dynamically as part of a team on a shift pattern which covers 24 hours a day/ 7 day a week, including nights, weekends and public holidays. Physical fitness and the ability to work in a challenging environment are also essential to undertaking this role.
