I am finally in vetting
. It took some time, a few calls and emails, but it is finally happening. Now I should probably get a big dose of patience, keep calm and carry on
I had email from Pip (The Mount’s HR Officer) 2 weeks ago to let me know I’d passed the vetting and to hold tight for the call. As I hadn’t heard, I called SS recruitment yesterday morning and they pulled up my application, confirmed all okay and gave me the number for the team that make ‘the call’, apparently that team work 4-10pm. I called the number at 5pm yesterday and it rang and rang and rang, then went to answerphone so I left a message. I then received a call back about an hour later.
They offered me residential poelt in March which I said I couldn’t do as I have a ten year old, she said no dates were showing for Grendon poelt and asked if I was a driver, then put me on hold to speak to her manager.
I was then offered Grendon non-residential poelt for me to start on the 25th June, that week in establishment and the Grendon training from 2nd July. I was asked if I would like to work as an OSG at The Mount from 30th April for the 8 weeks on Prison Officer salary which I’ve accepted.
Received email confirming all this straight away.
It says the poelt training starts on Mondays at 10am (doesn’t give a finish time), Tuesday-Thursday is 07:55-17:00 and Fridays 07:55-12pm.
I’d suggest that once your vetting clearance is confirmed, call the team up (I can give you the number) as that may be quicker then waiting for them to call you. Am guessing that if you do the non residential, you’ll probably be on the same one as me
Let me know how it goes!
