HM Prison Service does not hold central records on the number of staff classified as "without posts". It is a geographically widespread organisation and most aspects of personnel management are devolved to a local level.

HMPS redeploys staff on a temporary basis until a permanent position is found for them. There are no known instances where this has not occurred.
