The paper aims to examine the peculiarities of professional motivation and job satisfaction of the employees of the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine (SPSU). A special psychodiagnostic toolkit was used in the study, in particu-lar, Personality Motivational Profile by S. Ritchie and P. Martin to measure twelve needs in the field of professional motivation of the respondents, as well as the Job Satisfaction Survey developed by P. Spector, aimed at measuring the state of job satisfaction. According to the results, the main psychological peculiarities of work in the penitentiary system involve the awareness of its low prestige, the conditions of physical isolation, opposition to the criminal sub-culture, overload, etc. With the help of The Personality Motivational Profile, we have found that the most expressed need of the SPSU employees in the field of work is the need for money and tangible rewards, the need for work struc-ture. The least pronounced are the need for creativity at work, the need for power and influence. Using the technique of measuring job satisfaction with Paul Spector's Survey, it has been found that the greatest satisfaction the employ-ees get from their colleagues, the significance of their work, and the least one – from rewards for the quality of work and additional benefits. The carried out correlation analysis between every of the 12 needs in the professional field and the gender, age, work experience and job position of the SPSU staff has shown a correlation relationship be-tween the need for recognition and age, and between the need for self-development.
