So i passed my RAD on the 22nd of September. Almost a month ago now. Called 2 weeks ago to ask for a update and was told Manchester had not sent my results yet off to SS and they were awaiting them.
Called Manchester and was a snotty woman who answered and said why on earth are you ringing ss already? It can take 8 weeks to send your results....
So let another 2 weeks pass and called again on Friday as I still haven't heard anything, SS said that they're still awaiting my results and will chase them up.

Is this normal? I know vetting can take a long time but its frustrating to know I've passed my RAD and I just feel like absoloutely nothing whatsoever is happening. It's really annoying me. I just want to know If I have a conditional offer or the Merit List or what?

Has anybody else experienced a long wait after RAD to wait for a conditional offer/merit list conrrimation?

You’ll get the same reply whether you post this on one page or two. It can take weeks as you were told. It’s very frustrating but will be worth it in the end!

I had a 5 month wait. Handed my notice to the probation service today.

Good luck but remember it may take a while be patient :sloo:

I passed my rad, had a conditional offer and passed vetting, got the message regarding a call will be made shortly, and then out of the blue received an email saying the vacancy is now closed and thanks for my interest, has anybody else had this issue? Is there anything I can do? Thanks
