Prison officer opportunities

HMP Rochester

£30,902 - £34,800

Prison officers protect the public and help offenders turn their lives around.

If you have the integrity, skills and strength of character we’re looking for, this fast-paced role could be the start of a successful career. No two days or situations are ever the same. And, as you gain experience, you’ll find a range of opportunities to grow and develop into.

What we expect from our prison officers

There’s no such thing as a typical prison officer. Our people come from different walks of life, just like the offenders they work with. Whether you’re a parent, a teacher, have worked in retail or the armed forces, you’ll have developed the empathy, self-confidence and great communication skills we expect.

No matter the challenge, you’ll take the time to build constructive, positive and professional relationships with offenders who could be at the lowest point in their lives.

Teamwork plays a vital role in this environment, so you’ll need to be fully committed to supporting your colleagues and understand the importance of acting as one team to keep the prison, offenders and everyone who works here safe.

You will be required to work various shifts and weekends.

What you can expect from us

You’ll be given great training and opportunities for progression and development - including the chance to specialise in different areas.

There’s a good salary to look forward to, as well as 25 days’ holiday allowance each year, childcare vouchers, season ticket loans, retail discounts, Employee Assistance Programme and Cycle to Work scheme.

The rewards aren’t all you’ll gain from a role in the prison service. There’s the sense of achievement you feel when you’ve helped an offender to get their life back on track - the kind of experience you simply won’t find anywhere else.

How to apply

It takes a special type of person to be a great prison officer. If you're ready to start a rewarding new profession, apply now.
