five years ago Benchmarking came in which said prisons could run with a lot less staff, VEDS was born and thousands of highly experienced prison officers were paid off handsomely to leave early.
This gave HMP the prisons with a lot less staff that they wanted and since then? Well since then we have RECORD NUMBERS of brand new prison officers with 0 experience whatever. Far better than the hugely experienced prison officers who were paid handsomely to leave.

Extra proof of address

Post by An7555 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 5:57 pm

I’ve had an email saying I need to take another proof of address to the establishment I applied for (I was told on my RAD that I had plenty) so hey ho. How do I go about it? Do I just rock up to the front door and speak to reception or do I ring and make an appointment?

I had this happen to me, the prison I applied for got in contact with me to arrange a time. It might be worth ringing them .

I’ve seen this happen a lot!

So as well as my passport, driving license and council tax statement on the further information page I attached my P60!

Hopefully this won’t confuse them! I would call ahead or maybe speak to your recruitment advisor.

I’m having a nightmare! Attached my birth certificate, deed poll papers, divorce papers, P60x council tax statement. Then they got in touch because I needed more proof off address but I had to delete a document off Steria to do it then they got in touch saying I needed to put the document on I’d deleted. Then they got in touch just lastnight and said they won’t accept my divorce papers as a name linking document so I’ve had to apply to the registrar to get a copy of my old marriage certificate which I’m waiting for. To top it all off I’ve been married the last few weeks so I’m waiting for my new driving licence to come back along with my new marriage certificate so I can upload them!! I hope after all of this I pass vetting!!!!

I had this happen with mine, they told me at RAD that a birth certificate or marriage certificate were not allowed to be used, i had lost my drivers license so ordered a new one and had to go to my chosen prison to have it photocopied. They emailed me to notify first then called to arrange a date and time.
