HM Prison Service Familiarisation Event

Created in April 2017, Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) is a new agency in the Ministry of Justice, covering 121 prisons and employing over 42,000 staff. Their mission: to drive the biggest reform of the prison system in a generation. Across the UK, they are committed to improving how to rehabilitate offenders and protect the public.

HMPPS want to build real pride in the prison service and make it a place where ambitious professionals thrive. By applying to a local prison, you'll become part of a major organisation that invests in people. And for their prison officers, that means creating opportunities for higher pay, recognition and development through our promotion, leadership and apprenticeship programmes.
