What is an Operational Support Grade (prison support worker)?

As a prison support worker, you’ll play an integral part in maintaining a safe and secure environment in your prison. Working as part of a close-knit team, you will be responsible for a wide range of tasks including:

  • managing the control room
  • carrying out periodic security perimeter checks

  • and monitoring prisoner correspondence.

Using skills you acquired during your time in the military, coupled with specialist training, you’ll be joining an essential and highly respected part of the prison’s workforce.
