That starting salary must surely be a mistake. Band 3 officers starting on a 37 hour week earn £22,293. I think the salary is closer to the 30k mark for an S.O in that region.

We all love a bit of capability framework :slda:

Would be handy to know if there are any SOs on the forum that could clear this up? Im down south and classed as an outter London prison so starting salary for a 40hr contract is just shy of £30k a year.

Couldn’t agree more Bearguy. If a cost of living supplement is necessary, then obviously the basic rate is too low for the job that needs to be done!

It’s because it doesn’t include the unsocial hours allowance- you need to add 17%

I’m on approx 30k as SO (not at red site or London )

A normal officers pay is around 19.5k plus 17 % the figure shown for the SO is before the 17% shift allowance. A SO on a 37 hour contract up north is on around 28k, 39hrs around 30k an so on, that is without PP

Great to hear from an actual SO!
