Good luck Belfast! You’re right, the Northern Ireland service do additional checks due to the past situation.

Checks came back all good for AccessNI checks. Just waiting on CTC clearance now.

One thing I noticed- Do they contact your current employer? So my boss will now know I am looking to leave before I actually tell him? Pretty harsh that is.

Hi, I don't think they actually contact them unless they have to, I think they ask for references etc incase something doesn't match up with HMRC. Can I ask how long your checks have taken? I don't know how mine will work, im a student so I've never been employed

Hi J129

I put my AccessNI checks through 2 weeks ago and they were cleared Friday past. Those checks involved are just criminals conviction checks etc.

The CTC check was done last week and I don’t know how long this will take.

Horsey girl. Did you not submit your medical forms?

I received an email from HR connect yesterday asking me what the lead notice time was with my current employer.

Yes I received same email yesterday asking about notice for current employer. Yes I sent medical forms away. They told me today if medical was ok we wouldn't hear. Let's just hope it's ok. :slbg:

Yes I sent my medical forms and have heard nothing.

Done the enchanced AccessNI checks and they cleared but the CTC is still showing in progress.

Fingers crossed we all get notified soon.

J129 are you applying for Northern Ireland?

Horsey girl is it night duty or prison escort you are applying for?

So my CTC was completed Monday past on the portal. I spoke with someone to see if all was ok and I was told it passed on the Tuesday. Everyone's takes varying times.
I am night custody Belfast86.
As for the medical the OHS is a completely different dept from HR connect so they don't have any info if OHS will contact us or not. If they want to see you if you have an ongoing medical condition then OHS will write to you. The only time HR know about Medicals is when OHS inform them that you have passed. That's all I know, so keep fingers crossed. :slbg:

I made a mistake and done all mine in capital letters. Then read afterwards that what you shouldn’t do lol. Just hope it hasn’t delayed my clearance.

Ahh okay I thought because we moved onto the AccessNI checks and CTC that the medical was approved. I’m borderline passing the eyesight requirements so hopefully it’s accepted.

I’m also in for the night custody. What establishment are you hoping for?

I think they can post you to any of the 3 , as it said that you had to be prepared to work at either.

Yes read that. Very true - I spoke to a few guys and they said it’s unlikely you will be out into an establishment 80miles away.
