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.

We're also doing something different again this year for food. Last year I did a tapas which was amazing. This year with be a 3 bird game pie (pheasant, partridge and duck - all shot locally and prepared by yours truly), roast potatoes and parsnips, carrots and peas with a home made stuffing.

On prisonandprobationjobs.gov.uk it states...

"For example, a prison officer working 39 hours a week in the types of prisons listed below could earn the following when they start:

At one of the 4 Inner London prisons, £33,060 (a base salary of £30,060 + an allowance of £3,000) plus civil service pension and benefits

At one of the Outer London prisons, between £33,398 and £31,398 (a base salary of £28,398 + an allowance of either £5,000 or £3,000) plus civil service pension and benefits

At one of 17 prisons across the South and South-East, between £30,208 and 28,208 (a base salary of £25,208 + an allowance of either £5,000 or £3,000) plus civil service pension and benefits

Elsewhere in England and Wales, £23,572 plus civil service pension and benefits."

But if you click the salaries link on the same web page (the pdf image that Burtonboy provided) above this comment, those are 41 hour salaries and not the 39. I would assume that if it applies to 41 hours it is sticking to somewhere close to the 1.7% rise announced, and that the the comment quoted simply has a typo that should say 41 not 39.

Hi,

Has anyone been paid the new salary as yet.

Are the new ones on £20751 getting the 7% increase or they getting the basic 1% a few people have asked me and i’m unsure what to advise

Steria has updated the salaries on the vacancies now, so there is no confusion over what new starters will be getting...

Swansea Prison for example is advertised at 39 hours £22,396 - so that is a rise of £494 from the previous £21,902 so in line with the image Burtonboy linked earlier.

I hope this helps to clear things up.

https://www.prisonandprobationjobs.gov. ... s-2017.pdf

This has the salaries that are now on Steria for the different locations, and also the different hourly contracts. The numbers include all of the additional payments such as unsociable hours and any extras from specific establishments.

The 37 hours is what we'll be on during POELT (not sure whether the £3000 for certain Prisons would be while on POELT) then you either stay on that or opt in to the 39 or 41 hour contracts.

No but you get paid prison officer pay from your start day which is Day 1 of training which is the day our probation period is from. The 31st of march thing is not something I have seen its something someone said on here but I haven't seen that first hand on the intranet. It just says we will be backdated from april 1st

I'm due to start my POELT in January and have just signed my contract (£21,750 to start with). Why didn't they update the contract with the new salary if I am to earn more?
