May sound really thick... what is an OSG position?

How come you can do this before training etc?

Congratulations to all those with steria changes and the call today xx
OSG is operational support grade
I am in vetting (refered for decision)

It is a position that covers administrative issues
EG searching visitors, driving escorts, escorting vehicles inside prison, cctv during visit rooms, night shifts in wings etc

It is 2 weeks training and less money about 25-30%

This position gives opportunity to officers to do the daily routine inside wings

I'm just a bit concerned as my Steria update says

Thank you very much for your interest in PSP.

Your application is currently being reviewed, and we will be in contact with you shortly to let you know the outcome.

Everyone I have seen that has passed vetting has an update saying they will be contacted about the next steps of the recruitment process.

Has anyone had the same update as me and then been offered a start date?

Mine just says at the moment, 'your application is currently going through pre employment checks and has been referred for a decision'

I'm desperately trying not to get excited because only been in around 9 weeks and have a feeling mine will go to higher checks.

It's weird because my prison is classed as cat D but it has cat A, B, C and D prisoners so no idea what checks I will need 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️

I've seen on this thread many people having this style of status. I believe this is the equivalent of "referred for a decision"

Read back a few pages and people may have updated since this status.

Good luck

After having read a lot of people status changes I believe this is the one that comes before 'we will be in contact shortly' or is you have failed. It's the status that means your vetting is complete and sent off by vetting to the decision makers and you'll be due another change following this letting you know the outcome.
