Need to remember the prison is ours we just let them stay there. So none of this it's there house or own space. You can't go to a hotel and spark up?

I vaguely remember some movie where tons of missing people were returned to the planet including Glen Miller although he was slightly changed and now played reggae

In some YOI they do get gifts,socks or little stocking filler type things. Staff will usually get a longer dinner there will be a little fewer staff on over the whole day because bang up is usually earlier. You will tend to find its harder to bang up the more difficult cons near the end of your day over the festive period.

Market Force Payments

Post by Yvette8241 » Fri Sep 22, 2017 7:19 pm

I was just wondering if anyone could enlighten me please.......
I have just received my contract today and I have been granted (Band 3) 37 hrs ( I applied for 41) not a problem as I can always do overtime, however the prison I was applying for had an additional payment called "Market Force Payment" I wont disclose how much - however with the 41 hours - this is was a comparable wage to what I am on now. My contract does not state anything about "Market Force Payments" so I am just wondering if this is granted as an extra by my choice of prison and will be added onto my wage once successful in passing the POELT. If not Im back down to a wage I was not expecting. I kind of feel abit deflated because to be honest I was not expecting such a pay cut. Any experience would be appreciated - mainly just to ease my worries and help me make choices that may need to be made.

I wish you would use the search function like everyone else.


All contracts are 37 hours because you have to do training! After that they will give you the option to increase.

The extra payment will be in a separate form which you should get with ur contract in the post.

I've had nothing actually in writing other than emails regarding the market supplement payment. I've been told it's a local agreement and so doesn't show on your contract.

Really!! That's nuts. I got one emailed to me which "I accepted "

And the full contract came in the post with another form that's I had to sign to say that I have accepted the 3k allowance. I would call up about that if u didn't get one :/

Didn't get a form that asks to sign for the extra allowance with mine. I was under the impression you get it when you opt in for a 39 or 41 hr contract when you finish POELT

It said something along the lines of .... in addition to your basic salary you will be receiving 3000 a year which you will see as a separate payment in your payslip.this payment was implemented in February 2017 and will last for 4 years.once this ends HMPS have advised there will be no finicial loss or detriment to colleagues receiving the allowance.

Please sign this letter and return with your contract of appointment.
