2,886 staff are currently employed by the National Offender Management Service in Wales. This number comprises:

Number
Staff employed by Her Majesty's Prison Service 960
Staff employed by Probation Boards 1,351
Staff employed by the Director of Offender Management 17
Staff employed by Group 4 at HMP Parc 558

We are currently consulting on the proposals. We do not expect front line staff numbers in either prison or probation to change as a result of the new structures. It is not possible at this stage to say how many staff will be employed in the office of the Welsh Director of Offender Management either one month, six months, or 12 months after the restructuring has been implemented. It will be for the Director of Offender Management for Wales, supported by NOMS HQ, to determine exactly how the new merged office will be structured.
