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.

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.
