Failing RAD - Re-applying?

Post by exrafguy1987 » Thu Jul 23, 2015 12:53 pm

Hi there,

I've held different things reference re-applying. Can someone confirm if you are aloud to re-apply straight away, or whether you have to wait 3 months.

Also I've heard you can just change your email address and re-apply and therefore do the process straight away again?

Can anyone help?

You can apply straight away, no waiting required and you only need to use a different email address if you want to apply for the same establishment. If you want to apply for a different location then your original email address is fine. :slre:

Like floyd says, use another email address start from scratch, bang in the application again re-do the POST (same questions) and straight back into RAD and for the same establishment. If you were to use your current email, you have to wait until a new campaign (the job ref number will change if this happens). I spoke to shared services who told me to re-apply this way and I think it worked out about 20 days ish turn around with a pass in the bag at the end.
Good luck
Think about how stupid the average person is..... Then realise that half of em' are stupider than that :slnuts:

If you failed RAD by a couple of marks then they will invite you for a development day in the next week or so, if not then you can reapply the following month when the new campaign starts.

Failing that, you can reapply using a different email and doing the POST straight away and apply for the same job, if you wait a month then your chosen establishment may not be advertising.

You can apply for as many prisons as you want once you are successful at RAD and get SSCL to mirror your results across.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.
