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.

After 6 months after passing my RAD I have finally got the email with my conditional offer for HMP Durham. Was starting to lose faith, can't explain how excited I am.

Just thought I would share, and for others still waiting, keep the faith.

That's certainly a long wait for an offer, I hope your vetting goes through quicker 😉

I’ve only been waiting two months, but another establishment near me has just started recruiting, so an application will be going in for that one this weekend as well.

Congratulations, bet you’re pleased! I’m waiting on my conditional offer for the north east, did my RAD 2 weeks after yours so hopefully shouldn’t be too long!
