No system

Post by Peppa » Fri Nov 03, 2017 4:07 pm

I recieved my RAD results on 12th September, then nothing, after chasing this up I was told on the 11 October I had to attend my chosen prison to hand in further ID as it was insufficient but the next available appointment was the 25th to which I attended. I recieved a email from vetting on the 26th to which I filled in the next day but no job offer? I was under the impression you didn’t get a vetting email unless you had a conditional offer? Again I chased this up to which I’ve had no reply but today recieved an email telling me I’m on the merit list😩 I’m annoyed as I’m sure most would be but what a long long wait with no system to be told thanks but no thanks . Surely it doesn’t have to be this messy and disjointed?

Your now on the merit list awaiting a vacancy to open up at your choice of prison or cluster of prisons. This is normal.
Once a vacancy is identified then people on the merit list will be given a conditional offer and vetting begins.
Insider info alert.... The merit list does not run in chronological order, it should, and shared services say it does, but in reality it doesn't.

You may be on the merit list for 1 day. It does go like that.

You think the process is disjointed now?
Its the civil service, the cogs move slowly,get used to it.

Some people, myself included waited 7,8,9 months without contact from shared services

They could be looking to fill their merit list up as they always have applicants ready to start vetting when a vacancy arrises. I would however call SS and confirm if you have or haven't started vetting. It has been know that things like this are a mis communication. The main thing is don't take it to heart being merit listed. People have spent hours on it I spent 3 days on it before getting my offer so remain positive and good luck.

I too am patiently waiting. I have read lots of posts and have Noticed there doesn't seem to be an exact system.
I am ex military but have had another job/life since then I am not a youngster. I passed my RAD with ease but I am so anxious for the outcome. I am checking steria every two minutes.
My referees have not been contacted yet. Nail biting times!!!
