We are Gov Facility Service Ltd, a non-profit company owned entirely by the Ministry of Justice, supplying facilities management services to 50 prisons over the South and East of the UK with over 1,400 staff.

We are three years young, with a head office in London and dozens of opportunities to work across the south of England. But we’re growing fast.
