I still don't get how some receive a conditional offer before the pre employment forms are done and how some receive it after the pre emploment forms are done. I really don't, surely it should be same all over

its all a waiting game now, its been 3 weeks Friday since my vetting started and shared services have still not managed to update their system to say my references have gone back (were all sent back 2 weeks ago). Just got to forget about vetting and wait for the call as frustrating as it is. Remember it can be 6 months before vetting is complete.

It can take up to 6 months ? I don't get this process , some get a conditional offer after 2 weeks.
Does anyone know how it exactly works :
You Pass your online test , pass your RAD, SS receives all info and they pass it to the vetting team.
I am booked for familiarization visit / interview at my 2nd choice establishment for tomorrow.
Would this speed up the process . Should i get prepare for an interview ? :sloo:

Oh so it's not just me then. I am going for osg however I also don't understand this conditional offer business. I've seen some offered it even before the pre employment vetting.
Yet some have been offered it midway through vetting.
I sent my ore employment ones of weeks ago but I've not been given any conditional offer. But I know I've got the job as I wouldnt be doing vetting otherwise.
This is what I am confused

Hi laticsash92

I've started my application at December 2016, failed my first RAD by 1 point, got invited for a retake of 1 role play , got pass results week after and oki health form . Then NOTHING for 3 weeks. When i phoned SS was told that they don't have my RAD results and cannot find me on a system. Been given a number for priority recruitment . phoned them. was told that they just received my results from Newbolt Revel , they were waiting for my right to work confirmation ( very confusing as i have a British passport) . The nice lady at Priority recruitment has found my application and said all i have to do is wait for the call now. It's been 2 weeks because of the holidays . See what happens. Very frustrating as i told my bosses that i'm leaving , which i shouldn't , it's more pressure now. I think for everyone is different. I,m in London so they must have more applicants then anywhere else because of higher pay. I,m happy to take my 2 nd or 3rd choice establishment even if it means longer travel . I just want to start. :slst:

I guess it's different for everyone . I currently work for NHS so i get my DBS checked on a regular . But vetting is just contacting more agencies , etc,etc.

Someone on my POELT course who had already passed vetting got pulled off the course on the 2nd day and had to return home straight away with no reason given by SS, they was told to wait for a letter. Had something to do with the approvals and compliance team
i think therefore i am, i'm pink therefore i'm spam
