The thing I find funny about the whole vetting system is the inconsistencies through private & public sector. I currently work for a private sector company at an Immigration Removal Center(IRC) & am looking at going for a job in Prisoner Escort(PECS) for the same private security company. I’ve passed the vetting & clearance do these, yet not for public sector. I know that an IRC is not a prison but I have been told by the company I work for that I would be able to work in one of their prisons if I wanted to as I would pass the clearance for it. Unfortunately the prisons are too far away from me & not practical for a daily commute.

That’s actually surprising! Does this mean vetting you obtained from private company are not applicable to public ones? Since you’re already working in high security place, I’m surprised they don’t take that into account...have you received answer yet? My friend is still awaiting response.

The vetting is done by sscl for both public & private sector and should be the same. I could be wrong, I’m just going by what the senior management team told me at the place I work, that I would pass the vetting for their prisons.
I’ve still not heard anything yet, it’s only been a week. SSCL told me to give it at least 2 weeks for a response.
I’m losing hope really, don’t think I’m going to be able to overturn the decision. Think I’m better off sticking with what I’m doing & maybe moving into pecs.

That’s what I thought as well..hmm strange. Hopefully everything’s get sorted for you - it’s really unfair how you’d pass vetting for private companies but not public whilst it’s done by the same company..
