    Not many careers give you the chance to help others get their lives back on track. This is one of them. Being a Prison Officer isn’t only about protecting the public and keeping offenders secure. It’s also about listening to their issues. Understanding their situations. And helping them focus on the future.

    That’s why communication skills, resilience, empathy and assertiveness are so important. And you could have developed them in any walk of life. From retail, high street banking and catering to the private sector, the police force or being a parent.

    Having what it takes could take you further. Our training and teamwork will bring out the best in you. And once you have some experience behind you, you’ll have every chance to progress.
