Just out of interest if HGV Driving was so good why did you leave it in the first place ?

that's an easy one Easy. New recruits no more understand what the prison service is or what we do than any other mop. The job is what I hoped for it to be, the staff are most certainly not the people I wanted to work with. Personally I need more than driving has to offer in the way of challenge, job satisfaction etc but I can empathise with anyone who can be happy doing a simple job for decent money and who makes their personal life their focus rather than their work. Different strokes.......

I would agree that I have more respect for some one that leaves rather than spend year after year threatening to leave but never does.
In lirjo,s case ,i would say ,if you cant have a whine after thirty years in the game your not human.

Good luck to you and hope you have better luck than I did. I left 3yrs. ago it was a good idea but at the wrong time for me, business folded after a year. Was on dole for a while then worked for a landscape gardener for a year until I managed to get back into HMPS as a works OSG escort (fixed term contract) not perfect, but better than what I was doing. Hope everything works out for you.

Scooby, what is your problem? Do you work with this person? Do you even know this person? Are you so young in service and naive that you think all establishments are the same and you are able to judge this persons situation merely from your experience?? If so then hurrah for you, you are so happy in the job you cannot imagine circumstances which would lead you to see any other reality as acceptable. Yours is not the experience of every member of staff sadly. I suggest you wind your neck in and respect another individuals decision, perhaps even with them luck and be glad you are satisfied with your lot.

Steady on ST! Scooby has only given a coupe of short replies and hasn't said anything derogatory about anyone. The whole service is fluid, and we had a member of staff leave recently, a liked, funny, respected colleague. What WAS his name......

Oh dear, was that a bit snappy? :sloo: not my intention. I just got the impression that Scooby was being a little trite and it bothered me. My point was only that the job is not for everyone and if folk take the leap we have no right to judge them for it or make little of their reasons for doing so.
sitting on my arse 12 hours a day for £29000
seems to make light of a very serious role which some of us feel demands we put more effort in than that.

appears to be a quite unpleasant snipe at someone who has made a tough decision and stood by it.
