North West Prisons.

Post by Saxon79 » Sat Jun 24, 2017 7:43 pm

What prisons in the North West have people applied to? I wanted to apply for Strangeways but when I tried it said recruitment has been stopped due to amount of applications. So I applied to Preston, Garth and Wymott.

How long after your vetting completed did you start Poelt?

That is a long wait. Why is it taking so long? Surely they need vacancies filling.

To be fair the prison my offer is for was an application I added at a later date end of march I think
But I'm stuck in vetting now because of a medical question balls up and it seems to me that vetting is fine as long as it's straight forward and nothing goes wrong and then they don't seem to pick up on it and you get left for weeks
Basically I've been told that you need to a oh referral for each application as the medical clearance can't be mirrored to all applications
Problem lies we're it seems the refferal comes as a consequence of you attending or passing rad which mine did but my offer was from an application after that so I didn't need to do another rad and nobody's thought to refer me again
My brother lives next door to a gov at Risley and they told him that with hindley shitting down for the big extension/refurb all there staff are being spread out across the closest prisons so new intake for them will be slow or non existant for now
I take them to be Manchester Risley and Preston cluster

I've applied to Preston and the 2 in Leyland so I would imagine it will affect me

I'm not saying which establishment I eventually ended up in, except in checking I can't really find any active vacancies in any north west establishments near me!.

Well I think it's absurd that they would advertise Preston/Garth/Wymott and say 50 posts are available. Then at a later date another advert for the same 3 prisons plus Kirkham with another 50 posts available. Seems stupid if there isn't actually any vacancies.

They advertise knowing there are no positions as they need a full merit list
If 2 people quit and walk out today and they then start to advertise for 2 positions realistically it could be November December at earliest before there ready to start work and even then they have to do 12 week training so that means January February before they go live
They do all they can to minimise that waiting time for new staff by having a list of people ready to start vetting at the drop of a hat

A merit list isn't a bad thing in my opinion, as in most cases your unlikely to be merit listed for to long. Plus being merit listed means your in the next cluster to start vetting right away as soon as vacancies are confirmed by your chosen establishment.

So the reality is then that there isn't any jobs just places on a waiting list. Unreal

That's unknown
Some vacancies are actual jobs some are waiting list
I seen on the noms Facebook page that the person who runs the page said they don't advertise for jobs that they don't think will become available in the 12 months it takes for your rad accreditation to expire
Don't know how much truth is in that just what I read

How do you know if they start vetting? I found out Friday morning and got an OH assist thing to do online Friday afternoon.
