Stores, HMP Grendon & Springhill, Long term temporary, £9.20 per hour
As one of the leading agency suppliers to the HM Prison Service, for the provision of maintenance trades & support operatives, Hays is seeking to recruit a Storeperson for warehouse type duties at HMP Grendon & Springhill.

Although this will start as a temporary role you will have the opportunity to apply for a permanent position or other roles within the prison service during this time. It is likely that the duration will be extended however that’s based on many things including your performance whilst in post.

These roles are in a unique working environment with a strong sense of team work. Always in demand, you could benefit from long-term contracts and there is also potential, once trained, to work in other prisons both locally and nationally.

Working as part of the stores team you will be reporting directly into the site manager and will be asked to do a range of duties such as accepting deliveries, assist the movement of heavy and bulky items always making sure the job is done correctly but most importantly safely.

You may be asked to work in the kit exchange area of the prison which involves the movement of dirty laundry to and from the prison however the stores at this prison are outside the perimeter fence which means very little contact with any prisoners.

Although no formal qualifications or previous experience is required for this role, the nature of the Storeperson position requires candidates to be security conscious and able to challenge potential compromises and risks. You will also need to be reliable and consistent, level headed and have exceptional interpersonal skills.

Full training is provided by the establishment/department which is fully paid for.

A security check on yourself will be carried out, however these can be done fairly quickly and should allow you to start work in a matter of days rather than weeks, although you will then be asked to go through the full prison checks whilst in post, allowing you to work in other areas of the prison and do other duties only allowed when fully vetted.

You will work Monday - Thursday, 8.00am - 5.00pm and Friday 8.00am – 4.00pm with overtime rates in place should you wish or be asked to work any weekends.
