With my pre-employment checks currently sat as unsatisfactory, what has happened to my space that was offered for my establishment? Would someone else now be offered that place? If my appeal is successful would my vetting restart but I have to go onto a merit list until a space comes available?

I’m not overly sure what will happen to the position that was yours but looking at the amount of vacancies going at the moment I don’t think you’ll struggle to get a space!

Any news on your appeal or anything else coming through yet?

No mate, took my letter to the post office and sent that NYE requesting further info on why I failed. The post office lady said it wouldnt be physically sent until today due to no post being collected due to new years day :slst:
From what I have read on here SSCL can take around 2 weeks to respond with reason for failing vetting. So im anticipating a loooong and boring wait.

You must be feeling very frustrated and disappointed :|

Little bit of advice with SSCL is to keep on their tail, give them a phone call and reminder once a week and keep in touch with them, they “aren’t the best” to put it terms that I wouldn’t lose my job over

Stick at it and feel free to PM me if you like with any details and I can play middle man to the guy who I’m training with and successfully appealed

Keep your chin up and don’t give up!

So I have called SSCL this morning for an update, they have received my letter asking for more detail and they have written there response and its due to go out end of this week. So annoying, the bloke said on the phone he can see the reason why on the screen but he just cant say..
You would think they would automatically send out a letter stating reasons why you have failed rather than you have to request why. :slnuts:

Very frustrating I know! Are they posting to you or sending out via email?
I had a bit of a disagreement over them contacting me about something and getting back to me...turns out they had replied by email and it was in junk folder!

Let us know how you get on

Evening all.
Bit of an update.
So I received my letter and it was confirmed I failed due to previous convictions. I have written my appeal letter and have got 2 character references ready, waiting for a 3rd which should come this evening. Once they are in the appeal will be going in. I will keep you all updated
