We’re hiring designated detention officers to work in our custody suites located in a range of locations.
You’ll be working as part of a team responsible for the reception, care and management of detainees.
Detainee behaviour can be challenging – even volatile – so the ability to handle situations with respect, empathy and understanding is really important, as is the ability to remain calm and controlled.
£23,541 (plus 10% shift allowance) once you’ve successfully completed the training course and a six month probationary period.
As custody is a 24/7 business you’ll be required to work a full shift pattern, for which you’ll receive an additional 10% full shift pattern allowance (included in salary figures above).
Depending on your current vetting level and security clearances, you may be required to complete additional vetting information during the recruitment process.
