Poor managment
The management in hmpps is very poor and corrupt. The service crys out for staff but is happy to bully and under vaule all its staff when it suits.

As a Prison officer you don't get enough money or support for the life threatening situations you are made to face

Challenging yet rewarding
Anything you wish to know about my time working for HMPPS you may do so in person, it is not something I have any issues with however due to the sensitive nature of the job it is not something I am comfortable discussing openly on here.
Pros
Strong pension and decent wage, excellent colleagues
Cons
Long Hours, no real shift pattern, mentally exhausting

Don't play with your life!
Your up against the staff in the jail more so then the convicts. Whether it be healthcare, kitchen, workshop staff or uniformed staff. Management like to create the powderkeg atmosphere within the place, won't be satisfied until you get assaulted, officers lifes are cheap, please reconsider. Officers lifes are as cheap as the uniform they provide you with.
