Au79 I’m exactly the same, I’m driving everyone mad with it as well as myself :slst:
I’m also trying my best not to get excited just in case.
Don’t worry as soon as i now anything I’ll let the whole world no :slyay:

Hello - I have completed all assessments successfully and now just 4 weeks into the vetting process. I was told at my fitness test that some prisons get vetting done quicker than others. I’ve applied to HMP Foston Hall - was wondering if anybody on here has applied to the same prison and could tell me their time frame for vetting to be completed? (I know it’s slightly different for everyone as different issues can arise but a guideline would be good :) )

Hi Alishasmith989 I’ve been in vetting for 12 weeks, I got an update on my portal last week to say they would be in touch with me shortly to discuss the next stage of recruitment, it’s week 13 so I’m hoping I get an official pass/congratulations email or call this week, all in all it’s been 5 months since I applied for the job.
Good luck I hope you’re not in vetting as long as me but they do say up to 12 weeks.

Hey all,

My status finally changed to "referred for a decision", then this morning...its now a more simplified version of "currently going through pre-employment checks"


Now my brain is going...did they say "no we need more info on this person...." I am scared that this means I have failed...

I have an active IVA thats all I can think of, my DBS cleared. Oh and I was dismissed from my last job for 5 years, which I clearly stated they settled wit me for unfair dismissal....

GUYS, im really worried...if anyone has had similar, or knows how a dismissal can affect or an IVA. :slzi: :slbli:

Hi oreo123 I think most of us have flicked from the decision post back to per employment checks at least once. If that helps.
