Re: Prison Officer to OSG

How much probation you got left? Maybe wait until its over, depending on your line manager they say wait until probation is over before any moves. A friend of mine is a officer in another establishment to me, he told me about a lad that has downgraded to osg but didnt go into detail about it.

Re: Prison Officer to OSG

Speak to your line manager, they should point you in the right direction, if not, see your detail office.

Re: Fitness Test Issues

Tbh I don't, when I had my assessment day it was in 2019 and they only asked me to bring proof of address and ID. Because I was almost a year on merit list I had to redo my fitness in March last year they only asked me to bring ID. Sorry can't help with those forms.
