Between the period of 01/07/19 - 30/06/2020 the biggest pay rise given to someone in the Department was (a) 7.6 in percentage terms and (b) £7,059 in cash terms.

This pay increase, determined through the independent Prison Service Pay Review Body process and calculated as a percentage increase, was for Prison Service staff. HMPPS received the highest pay rise.

Figures are based on staff in post as at 30 June who received their pay awards in September which were backdated to 1 April. Figures do not include annual pay increases for staff in the National Probation Service which have yet to be confirmed and paid and excludes pay award for SCS grades as not yet implemented.
