Re­cruit­ment day at city prison has va­ri­ety of jobs

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Dozens of jobs at HMP Peter­bor­ough will be on of­fer at a re­cruit­ment fair.

The jail, lo­cated on Sav­ille Road, West­wood, will host the event to find new staff on Satur­day, Au­gust 12 be­tween 10am and 2pm at the Learn­ing and De­vel­op­ment Centre.

As well as prison cus­tody of­fi­cers, there are also op­por­tu­ni­ties for nurses, health­care as­sis­tants, tu­tors in a va­ri­ety of sub­jects, ad­min­is­tra­tors and elec­tri­cians. The jail works with of­fend­ers of a va­ri­ety of ages, and has a male and fe­male wing.

Clare Allen, who works as a prison cus­tody of­fi­cer at the jail, which is pri­vately run by Sudexo, said: “Work­ing at HMP/ YOI Peter­bor­ough can be a chal­leng­ing but en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence, with lots of sup­port avail­able for staff and res­i­dents alike. Help­ing res­i­dents over­come the is­sues that have led them to prison is very re­ward­ing, es­pe­cially when you can help to stop the cir­cle of re­of­fend­ing.”

Staff at the prison also sup­port char­i­ties, by tu­tor­ing res­i­dents to pro­duce items for sale rais­ing much needed funds for lo­cal char­i­ties, in­clud­ing Sue Ry­der Thorpe Hall and Hope into Ac­tion.
