Job Description

We are currently recruiting for Prison Custody Officers for our client in Bridgend.

Recruitment open day to be held on Thursday 10th February. Shortlisted candidates must be available to attend the open day.

Working in a prison isn't easy but can be hugely rewarding. You will face fresh challenges each day ranging from care and support to control and security issues.

The aim is to protect the public by keeping prisoners in custody and working with them to reduce the chance of them re-offending on release.

Our challenging regime is designed to address prisoner's offending behaviour, to give them choices and the chance to gain valuable life skills. People like you can help us continue this good work.

As a Prison Custody Officer, you will play a crucial part in caring for over 1,400 prisoners in safe and decent conditions. You will have the chance to work with children aged 15 years, older teenagers and adults from age 21 to older adults.

This is a complex and challenging balance of authority that requires understanding and compassion. Previous experience and qualifications aren't essential, life experience is far more important, as is the ability to remain calm and deal with all kinds of people in a non-judgemental, mature manner.

Candidates must be available to work any shift over a 40 hour working week, including every other weekend.
