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.

vetting ideas ??

Post by angela310787 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 1:53 pm

My Vetting started 7 weeks ago , ive rang shared services and emailed to be told they cant discuss vetting and if they require anything further they will email me. Any ideas on timeline? I know they have not requested my countersignature but no idea about my references as there previous employment. ive read post on here that other people are getting updates from shared services so why wont they give me one. I hate the waiting game ;-(

Anywhere from a month to 6 months, that’s about as much detail as you’re going to get. Just keep on eye on your steria for any updates, and be patient, there’s not much else you can do.

Read through the vetting blues thread, you'll find most of the info you want on there. You'll always get some who say they've been told things by ss, but as time has proved it's not always accurate information. 7 weeks is still early days to some, vetting takes as long as it takes 3-22 weeks. :slbg:

SS are rarely helpful and the generic response is the one you recieved. 7 weeks as mentioned is nothing in the grand scheme of things, you could finish this week or 4 months down the line, no one can tell you anything with regards to your vetting, no 2 cases are the same.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.

Your point of contact (recruitment advisor) at your chosen prison can request an update from SS.
Mine told me that they are still waiting for the countersig to be sent back - good job she told me because I assume SS wouldnt have told me and simply failed me after the time ran out.

Search for vetting and look on one of the hundreds of threads that cover this subject.

Always look for an answer instead if an answer looking for you.
