Inside GFSL what it takes to maintain prison infrastructure

The video features staff from HMP Bullingdon in Oxfordshire talking about everyday duties at the prison site as well as highlighting the very important safety protocols in place.

The staff also demonstrate the tools and equipment used to maintain the prison infrastructure as well as talk about why GFSL and particularly a prison site is a great place to work.

Site Manager Steve Brown explains:

Coming from a background of building services engineering, when I first came to the prison it felt quite daunting, but realising the prison was just a big building with training and the staff that we have inside to support us, just makes it a pleasant place to work in. Coming to the prison is probably one of the best jobs I’ve ever had.

Site Supervisor Jason Smith adds:

18 years ago when I started here, on my way to work I did feel nervous about my first day in my new role. On arrival and after a few days working here I found that it was a safe environment to work in. It wasn’t what my preconceptions had led me to believe. There is plenty of security protocol in place to keep us safe.

Locksmith and Carpenter Oscar Calusi says:

.We have fully equipped workshops with all the tools and equipment and if we need something they’ll order it in for us. The company’s very hot on safety so the equipment that’s in the workshops, you can only use with the proper training.

And Admininstration Officer Lauren Davies says:

.It’s a great work package, good holiday allowance and pension and there are lots of opportunities for training. Also it’s a really secure job which is really important to me especially in these uncertain times.
