So what are our values and what do we mean by them?


At Pact we are a community enriched by the diversity of our people including the people who work for us, with us and the people we are here to support. We are committed to recognising the unique qualities of our diverse team and appreciate the value that diversity brings to our organisation and services.  Our recognition of diversity can be found at the heart of what we do for example our play service within the prisons celebrates cultural diversity and provides activities that promote religious festivals. Within our catering services we aim to be responsive to the local communities. In short, we're as diverse as you make us.

We are committed to treating all our staff with trust and respect, and providing everyone with:
  • A manager who listens, supports and develops you
  • An interesting and challenging job 
  • An opportunity to get on, grow and develop
  • With an opportunity to make a difference in peoples’ lives and communities.
Due to the nature of our services our staff are required to undergo a thorough background check which complies with the governments' baseline vetting requirements. For some roles this will include prisons clearance vetting, a criminal records disclosure (DBS) at the appropriate level, as well as, eligibility to work in the UK and employment history checks and references. 

We welcome applications from people from all sectors of our diverse communities and all backgrounds, including people who have been affected by imprisonment or who have convictions (appointment to post is subject to a risk assessment).

All of our job advertisements will specify the vetting requirements for the post.
