Support Roles

As a large public sector organisation, the Scottish Prison Service requires a great variety of different skillsets and abilities in order to function. Within our prison establishments, Headquarters in Edinburgh and our training college at Polmont, we have a wide variety of business functions that support our Mission of creating a safer Scotland. While Prison Officers are directly responsible for the security and rehabilitation of prisoners, their work requires support and facilitation from a number of other activities and business functions – all of which require the work of skilled and committed people.
