five years ago Benchmarking came in which said prisons could run with a lot less staff, VEDS was born and thousands of highly experienced prison officers were paid off handsomely to leave early.
This gave HMP the prisons with a lot less staff that they wanted and since then? Well since then we have RECORD NUMBERS of brand new prison officers with 0 experience whatever. Far better than the hugely experienced prison officers who were paid handsomely to leave.

OSG interview

Post by nicolelouiseox » Mon Nov 13, 2017 12:54 am

Not sure if this is the right place on the site. I am completely new! Applied for OSG and have been invited for an interview. I hope to progress to officer in the future but want to get my feet under the table. Can anyone tell me what to expect in the OSG interview? What questions do they ask? Anything helps! Cheers

Hi nicolelouiseox welcome to the forum i did my interview for Osg back in July they asked me questions on.
Leading and Communicating
Collaborating and Partnering
Managing a Quality Service
Achieving a Safe and Secure Environment
They was the main ones then they asked me about the establishment and did i know what was the capacity of the establishment was did i know the governors name and what cat the establishment was. It may be worth reading up about the place you going to be working at hope this helps.

Hi, I had my interview today. It went really well. They didn't ask about the establishment, it was more what I had wrote in my application. Thankyou, though!

Congratulations.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.
