Anyone about to start work in HMP Chelmsford ?

Post by Ivolution » Thu Sep 14, 2017 1:19 am

Hi guys ,


I got the call on Monday and arranged my start date (27th of November). Is there anyone who already works or is about to start working in HMP Chelmsford and how do you find it there ? There has been bad publicity regarding that prison and people I spoke to during my RAD seemed a bit shocked that I want to work there. Thank you in advance for your help .


Kind Regards,

Ivo Vasilev
