Prison job Promotion/Salaries

Sorry I’ve posted about 5 threads over the past few days. I have looked online and on here but I can never find what I want to know (loads of other helpful information though).

Say you’re working in a London prison. Starting salary is say around 28k I think isn’t it?

What’s the next promotion you could get? Is it senior officer? What would the salary for that be? And how soon could it take to get into that role?

Obviously I know you wouldn’t get promotions instantly. I just wanted an idea on what the sort of time scales are and he salaries as it’s a job I’d be really keen to progress in. Thanks a lot 😊

If you can’t find these simple things for yourself when the information is widely available online and on here then you probably won’t be progressing anywhere soon. :slre:

Even after posting this there are 9 similar threads to this one that pop up below which have the answers you are looking for.

Am I the only one who’s not in it for the money 🤦🏽‍♀️

Yes I have a dream to be promoted (have searched the forums so know what I can do there is so many posts on here about it. Search function is top right).

However, I haven’t even thought about pay yet I just want to make it on the landings first!

If you’re joining the prison service for the money then you are crazy IMO, it’s not a well payed job, not bad but not that good in today’s financial market.

Whoah drop the attitude. Or don’t comment!

I said above I can’t find the information online. And when I search certain things they don’t come up, they only seem to come up underneath the thread once I’ve created it. When I had a look through I still wasn’t any the wiser.

Half of the information asked on these forums is probably widely available do you comment on all of those? If I won’t be progressing anywhere soon I bet you sure as well won’t with such a know it all, sarcastic attitude! Jesus

Yes I do comment on those also if it is widely available gobshite. If the written word offends you then how are you going to deal with much harsher comments from the cons you are looking after?

Well arent we precious today.... oh and I take it you haven't read the rules either about quoting the post directly above you :slnote:

No surprise there as you haven't bothered researching anything else.

Not giving him gobshite, calling him a gobshite for getting on his high horse, I didn’t give him attitude, I kindly pointed out that his lack of searching and finding things out for himself wouldn’t go down well in the service, he also suggests that I do not comment on other threads like this, when we both know (as does Elkins) that I comment on these threads the majority of the time.

It is clear from his questions that he hasn’t researched anything, the starting wage for a London Jail is higher than that stated, the rank structure and progression should be something you know if you are serious about a job.

Not to worry I will refrain from having any further interaction with him.

Thank God because trust me furthering our conversation wasn’t really high up on my list!!

I’ve explained (twice....although you probably couldn’t see that from so high on top of the horse you’re sat upon yourself) that I couldn’t find the answers online to the questions I asked.

I wasn’t asking what the basic salary for a prison officer was in London. I was asking what it was for a senior officer was - which I couldn’t and still can’t find on this forum....and I’m still none the wiser to on this thread because of your incessant nit-picking!

Christ I hope we don’t end up working together that would certainly be a fun shift I’d rather be locked up myself!! I bet you’re bloody popular with the inmates and your colleagues!!
