So they even run courses in London? Even better! I was hopeful when people were told the south was priority, but definitely doesn't seem to be the case

Hi everyone, I didnt know where to post this, I was invited back to do my fitness in July, and now I'm on the merit list , how long were you all waiting for a vacancy at your chosen establishment? I'm eager to start the job, it's something I've always wanted to do, so I'm just wondering how long it's taking everyone else?? Thanks in advance

Apply for as many as you can. The vacancy you applied for might not exist until 8 months time, or you might get lucky

As above. Some parts of the country recruit at a faster rate than others. Could be days, weeks or even months. Merit list position will also have an impact but there’s no way of knowing where you stand. Just got to wait it out and hope for the best. I’m 8 months and counting :slda:

I posted in on another thread how this covid thing is ridiculous when it comes to prison Officer recruits? Surely this is a vital public service?! Can’t they make exemptions for poelts??!!
Is it worth me ringing Shared services or priority recruitment to see what’s happening? What do you guys think? As far as I’m aware my vetting looks completed...
