The Prison Service Selection Process 2012

Many candidates apply to become a prison officer but only those that stand out from the other candidates are successful. The prison service application process that every candidate must pass is detailed below:

Stage 1: The Application Stage

The first stage is the application form stage and these are now completed online application. Therefore sending off your CV or an old written application form is no longer sufficient. Once your application has been received your will receive notification by email.

The Recruitment staff receive your online application and they undertake something called the initial sift stage.

The request to complete this test will be sent your email address and you must complete this within 7 days.

Stage 2: Prison Officer Selection Test (POST)

The POST is made up of two parts which also includes both numerical and language tests. The numerical test is sent to your e-mail address however the language test is usually taken during the recruitment day.

If successful with the on line numerical POST test stage you will be notified by email and asked to attend the next stage of the process which is Recruitment Assessment Day or RAD.

Stage 3: The Recruitment Assessment Day (RAD)

The assessment day is the first chance for the recruitment team to see you in person and the perfect opportunity to make a lasting impression. The RAD has been specifically created to test a number of different skills and see if you match up to what they are looking for. The assessment will typically consist of;

  • Successful completion of a number of role-play exercises (usually 4)
  • A one-on-one interview
  • The language test
  • A medical health check
  • Completion of the Vetting forms

Candidates who are successful then move onto the fourth and final stage of the whole process.

Stage 4: Appointment stage and beyond

Candidates who are successful during the prison officer recruitment day will then need to undertake a medical to ensure there a major health issues and they have a certain level of fitness. If you complete the medical with no problems then you will receive an offer of employment subject to the vetting process.
