Vetting

Post by DB1984 »

Hi all

Love this forum and I’ve read lots that have really helped me through my application and VARC.

I received a conditional offer and have accepted I’ve filled in pre employment details for vetting and had confirmation that they have started pre employment checks this was on the 22/3/21 I failed my first fitness so have re booked but not till the 11th June but my portal just says withdraw application nothing states on there that I’m still in checks which is what it had for 3 weeks. I’ve called and been told that because I haven’t done a fitness re sit I won’t get an update on my vetting so won’t know if I’ve passed everything but my problem is my current employer could possibly be offering voluntary redundancies in early May so obviously I would like to take it if I know I’ve got through vetting I’m pretty confident I can pass the fitness re test. Has anyone else had confirmation of vetting passed before the fitness test?

Hi DB1984 I started my vetting on 11th March then last week (Nearly 6 weeks) my portal message changed to “we will be in touch shortly with the next stage of recruitment” 2 days later it was changed again to “withdraw application” only and has stayed that way since. I failed the medical on 13th April 😩 and have rebooked it for 7th May. Advice from people on here is that I have passed my vetting :slyay: and that it would go to withdraw application only which it then did then once passed the medical I would get an email to book my call 🤞🤞 x

We have almost the same dates!!
My portal changed to “referred for a decision” and came back to “pre-employment checks” three times now.
Tomorrow morning I will have my medical/fitness test. I really hope after that will arrive good news.
Finger crossed!!

Which prison are you going to if you don't mind me asking ?
My status changed a couple of times now from pre employment checks to referred for a decision and with each time I get more impatient.
Good luck for your fitness test, you will smash it !
