How long did it take you guys?

Thanks.

Hi i'v been on the slow train started my vetting 25th July 11 weeks today still no news. I'v been in the same job for 12 years an lived in the same house for 20 years. I rang SS today to be told they have lost my counter signature rang work about it they sent it again so fingers crossed it may get the boat moving.

Wow so a pretty long wait then. i know for a Cat A its an additional 12 weeks if your going in as an officer if im right, So that applies to OSG as well? i know the same security checks will be in place anyway, I know vetting takes some time but i wasn't expecting anything like that.

I got the job offer a week ago so im anticipating a long long wait.

Its all the same be it you are an osg or officer, my ctc actually only took 5 weeks not 12 lol and ive been all over the place and had that many jobs etc.

You still deal with prisoners or see them anyway when they come in on the vans etc, still in a prison, you are the first port of call and first line of defence for staff and visitors and prisoners
