Qualifications & Experience Required

Qualifications & Experience
• Traditionally Prison Custody Officers (PCOs) were only known for ensuring that prisoners were securely locked in their cells.
• This “turnkey” image of the past has now gone and the modern PCOs are responsible for the safety, wellbeing and rehabilitation of remand and convicted prisoners.
• For the length of their sentence you will be their guide, counsellor, mentor and sometimes none of these. You have to be prepared for the highs and lows of being a PCO.
• It’s certainly not a 9-5 job and every day is different. Overall it’s a rewarding career and most of the people who become PCOs stay within the industry and progress their career.

The Ideal Candidate
• Are you interested in people from all different backgrounds/cultures and their issues?
• Is being part of a hard working dynamic team important to you?
• Can you work under pressure and still be supportive of your colleagues?
• Are you prepared to work shifts which will include weekend working, late/night shifts and working on public holidays?
• Are you dependable and can you be relied upon to come to your work and always perform to the best of your ability?
• Do you have the confidence to deal with difficult situations while remaining calm and in charge of your emotions?
• Are you over 18?
