I worked as an OSG one summer during uni a few years ago, so it was only about 4 months, and I really enjoyed it! OSG is a cover-all term for loads of different jobs, any ideas if you're going to be placed on something specific? I was part of a group of temp OSG's who were hired basically to escort a load of contractors round while a new wing was being built, but also did some other OSG work during quieter periods. Depending on what the specific demands are, you may be working on the gate, control room, escorts, visits, mailroom, basically anything other than prison officer or administration/management/probation/education. As I was a temp we didn't have the same shift patterns as other OSGs, but I'm pretty sure the shift patters in place were quite standard, guess it depends on the specific prison though.
