What?? I thought if you had to travel more than 1 hour you'd be allocated accommodation?? Call priority recruitment? Tuesday to Thursday is 07:30 till 17:00....That's a hell of a shift if you add 2 hrs drive either side...

I already spoke with priority recruitment. Apparently they base qualifying travel time for accommodation on the amount of time it takes to drive, public transport is not taken into consideration. Im tired of calling those numbers, its always one thing or the other.

Tho is wrong. You will be given accommodation.
2 hours commute is unacceptable each way.

Re ring.

I did call Sgt.Bush. They basically said take it or leave it. If I don't want it, the only other option is to wait almost 2 months for another POELT start date. I don't have the time. They say only the establishment can override that decision. I will speak to the establishment tomorrow and see what they say.

Bless you bolababu...Maybe you had a grumpy telephone person, it's definitely worth calling PR back. I'd do that before contacting your establishment just to double check..

Yes deffo call. I was offered Newbold residential which door to door is 2 hours away. Or Sunningdale which is an hour and 30 drive again residential.

Sunningdale residential I'm told isn't on site. We're put up in a local hotel which is walking distance from the training centre.
