A concerned member of staff at HMP Northumberland has said he fears for his future job security after an alternative employment offer was put forward.

Sodexo Justice Services (SJS), which took over the running of the Acklington-based unit in December, is giving uniformed employees the chance to move onto the company’s own terms and conditions.
