Hi all ,

My portal recently read " We shall be in contact shortly, regarding start dates " or something along those lines ( The Call ) today it changed to .......

Dear .......

As per our recent conversation, we are delighted to have extended a verbal offer to you.

We look forward to hearing from you with your decision.

Have I missed something ? Has this gone backward, forward ??

Ooo exciting stuff.. I had a call from private number and it was them.. I got excited to only find out my optima health check now needs updating so I need to do that before they can give me a start date 🤬
The amount of hoops Ive jumped through for this job is unreal.

My portal also still says be in touch shortly... when vetting is completed, the next stage is a formal offer, a phone call from Priority recruitment.
I’d imagine it depends on training course numbers and priorities may be for short staffed prisons? Just a guess anyway.

Yeah, mine said that for a while then only changed the last few days..... They said they did try calling me yesterday on my old number..... but on the phone today, they said i wont be called till Monday due to Training Establishment numbers, which they wont know till Monday. Priority did also explain that they offer a verbal offer on the phone, you say yes, they give dates and the Formal Offer is in when you sign etc...... i just want it all done now .

I also checked my status today. It said they'll be in touch with me shortly to discuss the next stage of the recruitment process. I guess my vetting has been completed, and there gonna make me a formal offer, and discuss a start date with me.

P.S I only started my vetting a little over 2 weeks ago

There isn’t a timing for vetting as such, mine seems to have taken 12 weeks, it can be done in two.
It depends on how many references are needed, a criminal record check, if any further information is needed. Everyone’s case is different.
Vetting can be done quickly now, also depends on who’s doing it I guess to.
Mine took a while but I declared a few things and also have already worked in a prison previously, I’d imagine they wanted to check this was all in order and that I wasn't sacked.

Do they put you on any poelt course or do they try and get you as close to your area as possible? I would be happy to go anywhere but I don't know if that's even an option

I don’t know how they work out Poelt course locations, I would think they just look at your start date and see where the training is for that particular course. The only training locations I know of are Newbold, Wandsworth and Stirling House. I’m sure there are many others though.
