five years ago Benchmarking came in which said prisons could run with a lot less staff, VEDS was born and thousands of highly experienced prison officers were paid off handsomely to leave early.
This gave HMP the prisons with a lot less staff that they wanted and since then? Well since then we have RECORD NUMBERS of brand new prison officers with 0 experience whatever. Far better than the hugely experienced prison officers who were paid handsomely to leave.

Annual Pay Rises?

Post by Quinton » Wed Dec 13, 2017 10:32 am

Apologies if this has already been mentioned but I scanned the site and didn't find a specific answer

What opportunities is there for pay rises in the prison service?

Do you get annual pay rises through experience, or can it take years to get any sort of pay rise?

I know in the police they give annual pay rises for the first 7 years up to £37,000 - is it the same with the prison service?

Many thanks,

If the English language made any sense, a catastrophe would be an apostrophe with fur!

So it has actually been lifted now? That's great news!
