Failed, help!?!?!

Post by Russko »

Bit disappointed, see below:

“Thank you very much for your interest in becoming a prison officer. Unfortunately your pre-employment checks that have been returned are unsatisfactory and we will therefore not be able to progress your application further on this occasion.

We appreciate that this news will be disappointing for you and therefore if you have any questions please contact us using the details below and quote your applicant ID”

Where do I go with this?

Or is that it?

Have you spoke to anyone to find out exactly why you’ve failed? I hear you can appeal the decision, I actually spoke to somebody on here not long ago and he failed vetting too, appealed and passed!

Don’t give up just yet!

Sorry to hear that I’m sure that’s the news most people dread, I’d find the reason out, try back yourself up and appeal. It wouldn’t hurt to and at least it shows your fighting for the job and not willing to give up. Best of luck and I hope it all goes through ok in the future!

I've have seen some folk on here overturn their decision by appeal. Good luck

Could be something as simple as reference not received on a certain timescale. Call, discuss and appeal

Really sorry to hear that. Sorry I can't offer no help though. Fingers crossed for an appeal 🤞

Russko, are you the person who was dismissed from the prison service for poor attendance?

It could be due to a reference not getting back or something, something silly like that.

What did you originally fail vetting for if you don't mind me asking, just a reference not getting back or?

Hi Owen, I’ve had to write to them, so see how it goes. Not getting too excited though.

Hey, did they tell you what you had failed on or was this due to the dismissal? Good luck
