Re: Vetting Process

Thanks northerngal, erm I did that form just over 2 weeks ago. By the sounds of it, there is no real science behind it, some people have waited ages and some not so much. Maybe I am lucky and they want to give me a date pending passing the medical of course.

Nice one bearguy!

Re: Vetting Process

So mine has now changed to the famous "we'll be in touch with the next step"! Background checks only started 2.5 weeks ago and I haven't even done the fitness/medical yet. This surely can't be it!? Update, yep just got the text saying they'll be calling me to sort a start date! Holy s**t. ...

Re: Starting training on the 14th june

Yeah please do C4l27 because I live 10 mins away from Oakham and I'm interested in where I'll be starting my training. All I have so far is the fitness in Rugby in a couple of weeks.

Re: Vetting Process

I know what you mean Db1984, check pretty much hourly even though I still have my fitness to do. I jist grabbed the first available appointment too (26th May), I'm now thinking if I'd have waited a day would there have been earlier slots. I just want to get started!

Re: Vetting Process

I'm feeling your pain guys. 2 months since I hit the apply button, 2 weeks into background checks and fitness in 3 weeks. I'm so impatient.

Re: Length of vetting

Would be good to hear something soon, I'm the worst when it comes to impatients, my vetting started 2 weeks ago so I may have a bit of a wait. I know that my counter signatory was contacted about a week in, no idea if that's a good sign or not? Only thing thats now bothering me is I am in an IVA. Mi...
