The campaign features three podcasts, which are available to download from Welcome to the Frontline, the HMPS' recruitment website, and iTunes.

The podcasts are designed to highlight the difficult and challenging environments HMPS staff face day to day, and to create a realistic idea of what working in a prison is like.

The first podcast features a conversation between a dissatisfied non-prison worker and a prison guard about working within HR at the Prison Service.

Two other podcasts include a dissatisfied non-prison worker having a conversation with an area manager, and a dialogue between an area manager and a prison governor.

Gareth Hadley, the Prison Service's director of personnel, explained: "TMP Worldwide have really understood our exciting new HR roles, who we're looking for and what's happening within the Prison Service as a whole."

Dawn Kelly, digital creative director at TMP Worldwide, added: "I feel we've been able to maximise the potential of this medium by going beyond the traditional hints and tips podcasts and creating an actual experience for the candidate."

HMPS currently employs 48,000 people in the UK.
