About Scottish Prison Service
Diversity is vital to achieving our Vision – Helping to build a safer Scotland – Unlocking Potential – Transforming Lives - and we have made a clear commitment to equality and diversity through all of our activities. Our strategic focus for the next 2 years is on our continuous improvement as an organisation and to ensure positive outcomes are delivered for those in our care. Improving the diversity of our workforce is both imperative, and essential, if our workforce is truly representative of the society we serve. An organisation of mixed gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, faith perspectives, different experiences and backgrounds provides a wider range of experiences, produces different innovative ideas and offers a variety of viewpoints. This enables informed decision making and ultimately leads to improving the quality of the services we offer. For these reasons the Scottish Prison Service is committed to increasing the levels of diversity within our workforce, enabling all our staff to bring their whole selves to work.
Working for us you will see just how much of a meaningful difference you make to those within our care. We also know that our employees want to do the best job possible, so we believe in properly rewarding our staff for their hard work and commitment. Rewarding our employees isn’t just about pay. We want to do everything we can to ensure that we protect your wellbeing, and you can enjoy a work/life balance.
