Hi Labgurl

My OH Questionnaire got sent out after the the reference forms that you initially fill in, it should be in your emails.

Try searching your email box for alerts@myohportal.co.uk

Thanks

Nice!

Well in that case I am guessing that will be one of the documents the vetting team has received to say you have been deferred for a decision.

Hi all, my profile on justice jobs has changed and now says
We shall be in contact with you shortly to let you know the next stage of the recruitment process.

Is that good news ? I feel like it sounds good but I don't wanna get my hopes up

That means you’ve passed vetting mate! I had revived that the other day and then 2 days later received an email to book a time for them to call me to discuss when you start! So congrats mate

How long have you been in vetting for if don't mind me asking? My portal keeps jumping back from referred for a decision to be made back to going through pre employment checks 4th time now 😔

I started vetting on 27th of February, could have started sooner but I had a hard time getting a paper translated from my home country language to English.
I didn't get The Call yet, but my profile changed to what I wrote on my last post this morning! Hope that helps :)

That was quick space man, well done!!!

I’m in a similar boat to the above, I’ve gone from being referred to a decision to back to employment checks lol

I have only been in vetting 2.5 weeks though to be fair.

Could only book my occupational health call for this morning as well and that went well, she said no concerns and she will inform recruitment.

Just got my fitness and medical next week left and obviously the “employment checks” lol

Have you already done your fitness and medical space general?

I took and passed ARC and fitness back in December! Then I was on merit list for a while, so I applied to a second prison. After that I got an offer for both and I took a little time to decide which one I wanted to most, then vetting started on 27th of Feb :)

To be fair they had lots of my info already so that's probably why it was quick. 3 weeks isn't that long, hang in there!! And keep us updated!

Hey!

New to the forum, so apologies for butting in. I was just wondering what establishment you’ve applied for. I’ve been in vetting 4 weeks so far and my status has t changed once.

Getting impatient haha!

Thanks in advance
