OSG vetting worry

Post by raz »

Hi all,

Received my conditional offer as an OSG and have filled out my vetting application however I’m slightly worried that even though I’m clean as a whistle my brother being about to finish his probation period this month is my worry. Would his record have an impact on my vetting pass.

Thanks 🙏

My brother spent most his teens in prison and I've been arrested 4 times this was 17 years ago, but I passed vetting and in 4 weeks I start training to be a prison officer, just be honest about everything and should be fine

I could be wrong but I believe it only would be relevant if you applied for the prison he had previously been in? Whatever you do, just be honest and declare it. It will 100% count in your favour. I don’t think they ask these things because the necessarily have an issue with it, more to make sure it’s not a conflict of interest.
