Prison Chaplain in HMP & YOI Polmont, HMP Low Moss
on 5 June 2020
A team atmosphere.
The Scottish Prison Service offers a stable job, with a strong pension and opportunities for rapid career progression. It is a caring environment, working with vulnerable people.
First Line Manager in Scotland
on 28 April 2021
A tough job
Really tough job. The staff on the ground can be fab and really look out for you. But policies and people trying to climb the ladder put a dampener on the job. People often talk behind your back rather than being grown up about it
Chaplain in Greenock, Inverclyde
on 19 January 2021
Great organisation
Rewarding work in a team situation where there are great challenges but wonderful rewards in your dealings with colleagues and prisoners. Clear setting of goals and objectives.
Residential Officer in SPSC
on 30 July 2020
The SPS College is nothing but so called senior management trying to project power. Big fish in a little pond, sent to the college to get them out of sight and out of mind of where the SPS require real management, which is within the jails. You will be fed lies and stories, and if your face doesn't fit they will use their 'power' to get you out. Steer well clear.
Residential Prison Officer in Glasgow, Glasgow
on 28 July 2020
The prison college is complete corruption if your face doesn’t fit, avoid like the plaque. Had to involve lawyers and MPs about how myself and fellow recruits have been treated.
