Unlocking Potential, Transforming Lives with Scottish Prison Service

Unlocking Potential, Transforming Lives with Scottish Prison Service

By Ed Hanna

We operate in a fascinating, complex and rapidly changing environment and our vision is to help build a safer Scotland by unlocking potential and transforming lives. This means we’re committed to nurturing and investing in our greatest strength and resource – People.

We employ a diverse range of people; each contributing their own unique experiences and skills to enhance the service we deliver and your SPS experience will be both challenging and rewarding.

You’ll be committed to helping us achieve our goals and in return, we are committed to helping you to achieve yours.

Joining our team at HMP&YOI Grampian as an Operations Officer, you’ll be a short drive from the city of Aberdeen and within an easy commute to work, making it an ideal location to resettle with family.

During year one as an Operations Officer, you’ll work towards and will achieve an SVQ Level 3 in Custodial Care. This is a nationally recognised award offered by the Scottish Qualifications Authority in partnership with the SPS.

Civvy Street Magazine will be detailing more about what a career within the SPS entails in the December issue. You‘ll hear from service personnel who have made that transition you are about to embark on provide information on the specific roles and opportunities within HMP&YOI Grampian.
