Transfer

Recommended Posts

Vorn189

Hello all,

I'm Worcester born and bred, but have spent the last 4 years in Dyfed-Powys. Just now have jumped at the opportunity to transfer to West Mercia with the most recent intake.

I've got my interview on the 8th June, concerning competencies, knowledge of legislation, and hypotheticals.

Is anyone else here going for transfer?

Is there any advice I can glean from anyone that has been through this gauntlet already?

Nice to meet you, and very much hope to be part of the force in the near future.

 

Charlie

Hi PCW.

I was successful at interview yes. Very pleased.

Currently twiddling thumbs and waiting for an update on the last remaining appointments (Medical, Uniform and Biometrics) - HR indicated that Occy Health was having some delays.

I’ve recently transferred forces (although, different forces to the ones your transferring between). From the application closing date to the date of transfer took pretty much 8 months so I wouldn’t worry if things seem to be moving slowly :)

Thanks Jt, that does make me feel a tad better! It's an odd one, West Mercia's transfer vacancies opened in April but are not due to close until December 2018. They stated to me it would be a rolling application process, but who knows whether I'll not be progressing until they close the doors proper.

I have my medical on the 11th September, with a potential start date in October. Fingers crossed :)

Fingers crossed indeed, 

I have noticed that West Mercia are rather specific in the detail they go into and it does take a little while to get through the process however they really are getting through thick and fast.

I am under the impression that there is a course running every month until April (this is across West Mercia and Warwickshire)

That's quite a large influx of people. I was told that October 15th was the only transferee intake at this stage, but considering the vacancies are open until December, there's bound to be more intakes as time goes on.

As it is October the 15th now, here’s wishing you good luck and hope you don’t fall asleep during Power-Points!

I’ll see you out there

Thanks PCW.

Just about to finish my 1st of 2 weeks induction before deploying to Worcester City. 

Likewise, good luck with your training, and see you around.
