Recruitment Process

Recommended Posts

Evening everyone , hope you are all well. I am currently in the vetting and medical stage and sent off forms nearly two months ago. I haven't heard anything even after emailing. Is it usual to take this long at this stage?

Yes and no, no clear answer as it depend on both Force and applicant. Call HR and ask, that's what I did when I thought it was taking it long and they gave an update re how long.

I've just phoned HR myself for Kent police. I start next month. I wanted an update on my vetting. They put me through to the central vetting unit for Kent police and she was able to update me via the phone.

Hi Englishgirl,

The minimum age for the Specials is 18 and there is no maximum limit as per say. :) - Unless this has changed at all recently.

Hi anybody near the end of their recruitment process ? I am and the waiting is unbearable . Every time you pass one hurdle and breathe a sigh of relief then the next one comes along and makes you feel anxious all over again . Im hoping to start my training end of November if all goes to plan . Very excited but then slightly nervous about being out in the streets and not having the treats of knowledge to feel confident straight away .

I'm currently awaiting vetting and references to come back before training with west Mercia for specials.... Frustrating that everything else went so quick yet since they told me I'd passed the assessment centre it's been over a month with hearing nothing

Hi. I am currently in the Specials training and have my final exam coming up. I still feel a little nervy hoping that I pass the final exam and that will hopefully lead to new future ahead of me. The waiting was unbearable and everyday I was checking my emails like a mad woman! You will hear back, it can take some time but it will all work out in the end. It seems like a long process but looking back now I can't believe just how quick the time has flown by. The trainers in Maidstone are fantastic and are so so supportive.
