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.

Lightening speed, nice one! Can you let us know what made it so quick. Previous number of jobs, addresses, dbs, ctc cleared already etc.

To be honest, I don't actually know how it was done so quick.

But if there is anyone after information, I had a 3 or 4 jobs over 5 years they requested and a fair few address's, nothing such as DBS or CTC had already been completed but I did not require the CTC any way.

1) My current or previous employer wasn't contacted (all done by HMRC)
2) My Counter signatory was not contacted either.
3)Once my status changed I contacted Priority Recruitment

As long as your nice about it to SS or PR then they will help you.
