Prison governors are the managers of the prison service and are responsible for the administration and smooth running of a prison unit. They work at different levels of responsibility according to their management grade. These range from Governor 3 to Governor 1 grade.

Governor 3 grade is the initial management grade. This role is largely made up of training and supervising staff, as well as arranging work and leisure activities for inmates. A Governor 3 may work in all parts of the prison and have frequent contact with prisoners.

Governor 2 staff have additional responsibilities to those above and may have overall responsibility for a small prison. Governors working in the larger establishments are graded 2 or 1.

The only route to becoming a prison governor is to join the service as a prison officer and work your way up. There are two main promotional paths available from the basic Prison Officer rank.

The first path is from Prison Officer to Assistant Chief Officer to Chief Officer 2 and then to Chief Officer 1 grade.

The second path is from prison officer to Clerk 2 to Clerk 1 to Assistant Governor.

Having reached either Assistant Governor or Chief Officer grade, candidates may apply for Deputy Governor positions. Promotion to Governor 2 level is open to those at Governor 3 and Deputy Governor levels. Promotion to Governor 1 level is open to those at Governor 2 and Governor 3 levels.

No, I'm sorry. I have searched and searched, but there isn't much on the net about the Irish Prison Service.
