The Quarterly NOMS Workforce Statistics Bulletin was designed to monitor changes to staffing figures and the structure of the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) staff population over time.

  • staff in post FTE by region; by function of establishment (category of prison); by grade, and by establishment.
  • staff in post headcount by protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010.
  • the headcount of joiners and leavers by region; by function of establishment (category of prison); by grade; by protected characteristic.
  • the headcount of leavers by reason for leaving.

The first edition of the Quarterly NOMS Workforce Statistics Bulletin was published on 29 August 2013 for the time series from 31 March 2010 to 30 June 2013. Subsequent editions are scheduled to be released at 9.30am on the final Thursday of the month on a quarterly basis in the months of November, February, May and August.
