Decent pay up to a point but cant give allocated yearly ad hoc leave
Pay freezes after 2 years unless you gain promotion. Also holidays dont always get given due to lack of staff and you dont get sick pay. Promotion is only if your face fits rather than skills required to perform roles.

Do not work here
I was assaulted on duty in 2017 and have received no after care or compensation for my injuries. I suffered a brain haemorrhage from the assault and have received NOTHING for it.

Probably a job not for everyone
Low wage offered (especially in the first few years) having in view the high risks (including putting your life in danger) dealing with dangerous prisoners. Prisoners have more rights than a Prison Custody Officer has. Prisoners get nice hot meals plus snacks in the cells, while a Prison Custody Officer bring his food from home, not even a free tea or coffee can get at work.
Pros
You a free car park by the prison.
Cons
Too many to list them.
