HMP Oakwood near Wolverhampton, is a category ‘C’ training prison providing 1,800 places for sentenced males adults. It is one of the largest prisons in England and Wales.

Whatever job you do now, you may have the skills to change your career.  That is what our Prisoner Custody Officers (PCOs) have done.  All you need is commitment to do the right thing and the ability to build rapport with just about anyone.

As a natural communicator you will have excellent interpersonal skills including problem solving and conflict resolution, together with a real passion to provide custody with care.

Working in a prison isn’t just about keeping people behind bars.  With a calm, firm but fair and non-judgemental approach, you’ll also need to be a listener, a committed team player, counsellor, peacekeeper and social worker.  Working well in a disciplined, supportive and professional team is vital in this 24/7 environment.  All these qualities coupled with a vigilant and versatile approach are what makes a good PCO.

At G4S, we invest heavily in our people.  If you join us you’ll attend our comprehensive training programme to equip you with the skills and knowledge for the job. As well as ongoing support and development opportunities we offer generous holiday entitlement, company pension, an onsite gym, free onsite parking and the chance to do an extraordinary job – every day.
