Construction Phase

The prison is being built by Lendlease. An Expression of Interest form is now available (below) if you wish to express an interest in working on the North Wales Prison project during the construction phase. Many job opportunities are available for local people but there are also work placements and apprenticeships available over the lifetime of the build. The video below shows some of the job opportunities that are available.

A Jobcentre Plus Officer has been seconded to the project to help local people get access to these opportunities. All completed Expression of Interest forms should be returned to JobCentre Plus at Wrexham.northwalesprisonrecruitment@dwp.gsi.gov.uk.

There are still a significant number of apprenticeships available. Please use the above form to express your interest.
