FROM RAD TO MEIRIT/OFFER

Post by mpeng82 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 6:02 am

Morning all,

before i begin i will say that i have tried to search for my answer but due to there being too many posts the search does not show any results so i apologise for the common question.

i know it is different for everyone but how long have you waited from passing your rad and getting the oh questionaire to having a conditional offer or merit listed?

Thanks all

You've answered your own question, it is different for everyone. There is no set answer or set time for any of this to happen, it depends on a lot of factors:

How well you done in RAD
Is your establishment oversubscribed
Is your establishment actively recruiting
How many people are in front of you on the merit list

As for OH, again this seems to be a mystery, the majority of people get this before they even have RAD results, others the same day as the results and others like me, 10 weeks in to vetting.

I had my rad results on the 3rd October and received my oh assist the same day but no further email to say I’ve been merit listed/conditional offer! I’ve emailed them but they say they haven’t received my rad results which is crazy, they won’t accept my email with them on so I’m at stale mate.

Keep your chin up and don't get frustrated - it can take a couple of weeks or so for SS to receive your results and update the system.

This is also a common occurrence, can take up to 5 weeks for the results to be uploaded even though it states 10 days, if you are expecting things to go quick or smoothly then you are going to be bitterly disappointed. Some people are 4 weeks in vetting others have taken almost a year, no one knows what's going on in vetting even those that work there....

It took 8 days for me to receive an email regarding bring merit listed.

I then received a conditional offer 9 days later I think.

I have just submittef pre employment info and have not yet received an OH Assist form! I'm sure it will appear at some point!
Rad- 24.09.17
Conditional Offer - 13.10.17
Pre Employment Forms Submitted - 16.10.17
Referred for decision - 11.11.17
Oh form received and status update to oh outstanding - 14.11.17

thanks for the reply folks and i know its a waiting game of patience.

this i hae no issue about especially when it gets to vetting but my concern is people who are taking their rad after me are now getting conditional offers.

here i am being patient but through no fault of my own my application is taking longer and from the information given at RAD is now outside the normal timescales.

Peppa im similar to you i have passed my rad 21days ago which is 16 working days and shared services still have not had my results

boowho

There are also reasons for that, the establishment is probably higher up the priority list than the one you applied too, I know it's frustrating but unfortunately that is the way it is.

Vetting must have been easier for them, as I say it’s a guessing game with Vetting.

Im in similar boat, got my RAD results 15 sept, called last week as no news and they said no results on system yet, frustrating when i have them in front of me but trying to be patient! I was hoping to hand my notice in at my current place before xmas but very unlikely! Hope you hear soon!

Hi. I did my medical and fitness on the 19th September and received email on the 20th that I had passed. SS has still not received the info that I have passed. Spoke to them today and they say they will chase up. Peppa, I did the original RAD same day as you so i would ring SS and get them to chase.

Hi jackadoo I received an email today to say I had insufficient Id, it’s annoying because I had to go to do my fitness test at a later date as nurse wasn’t there and they could have told me to bring more then or actually told me on my original day that it was insufficient 😏 I have to go to my chosen prison next week to take in more id 🙄
