    Pain in the bollix to do that IST again though :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    Personally I'm more concerned with the prospect of re doing the AC.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 518 ✭✭✭oztop1234

  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech

    Not a thing. I'm not expecting to until this next round of PCA's are over


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 380 ✭✭vickmackey


    i'd agree- cant see anything happening for us until the medicals are over for ones currently finished PCAs


  • Registered Users Posts: 142 ✭✭CDizzle


    I'm expecting the next group will hear something in about 5 weeks. Not basing this on anything i've been told or anything, just a feeling i have.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 380 ✭✭vickmackey

    If anyone is interested, HM Prison Service are recruiting prison officers.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 106 ✭✭Clare1304


    Do you have a link? Thanks for info


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,262 ✭✭✭DesertCreat_15


    Cant find anything about it anywhere ! :P

    Where did you see it ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 ✭✭✭.S.


    I checked the NIPS website, nothing there. They were recruiting this time last year, I applied, passed all stages and am awaiting a job opening (they recruited in order of merit, I wasn't high enough to get in immediately) and have been in this position for months. I can't see them doing a new campaign when I know there are others in the same boat (obv I may be wrong).

    All prison officers wanna be peelers anyways though :-)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,262 ✭✭✭DesertCreat_15


    I knew there was a recent NI prison recruitment so long ago, checked out the 'mainland' websites, no joy there either!


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    It's not the Northern Ireland Prison Service, it's HM Prison Service for England and Wales. It would be worth considering in terms of experience for the AC if unsuccessful with PSNI this time round.


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    I just had another look at the jobs sites for Prison Service and National Offender Management Service and they have been taken down, I'm not too sure what the closing date was but I applied 2 days ago and completed an online selection test last night....strange :/


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    The Civil Nuclear Constabulary and MOD Police are still recruiting. https://cnc.engageats.co.uk/Login.aspx and http://www.mod.police.uk/recruitment.html

    Would they actually run a new campaign before they have fully finished the current one??? Would seem very confusing especially when funding is a key factor and they don't know yet how many will get through from current patient waiters!
    Maybe SHIELD can advise on this??
    It looks like the next intake may be either June or July, so all the information they are collecting from all applicants who are still in the merit pool (Medical, ability to pass the PCT, Vetting) will stay valid and will be 'frozen' if you like, until they get all the results back and determine if you have passed and you are eligible and will be called.

    It has happened in the past that a new Recruitment Campaign has started and an applicants Vetting is still outstanding from a previous Campaign. There is no need for them to reapply until they get a 'Dear John' from Campaign 'Old'. Some like to cover themselves and apply for Campaign 'New' just in case they've failed Campaign 'Old' so they'll be ready to do it all again if necessary, this time around perhaps a little bit wiser.

    If you don't understand any of the above, just let me know which bit and I'll do my best to try and make it clearer.

    again, much appreciated SHIELD -- just 1 wee question you could maybe help with please?....if the intake is ??september??, will those of us waiting for PCAs, and the rest of the process, be likely to get dates for these soon, so HR has list of names ready to go...??
    See above. It looks like it'll be sooner. I'd say they already have a shortlist of Candidates by now. I think there will be more intakes than just 2 this year. I reckon 4.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 518 ✭✭✭oztop1234


    Over on the waiting thread someone must have been at their induction weekend.

    Looks like they are starting a new squad every five weeks.

    Hopefully this is good news for us and we should hear soon :-)

    thankyou very much Shield!
    and Oztop!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 518 ✭✭✭oztop1234


    So I come home open door and see on the mat a large white envelope addressed to me.....happy days vetting forms :-) well chuffed

    Open letter only to find it's from my solicitor in relation to a house purchase........

    DEVASTATED!!!!

    Well I'm happy my solicitor has approved it but wished it was vetting forms.

    Ah well


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    It's quite frustrating having to wait, even if we were given an approximate date as to when we should expect our forms, it would take the edge off.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 380 ✭✭vickmackey


    Yup. Or put us through the first parts of our next stages to get us ready in the background for starting --- at least they would know how many were waiting in the wings and could give an idea of start dates along with knowing how many needed from new campaign
    Well, that's my tuppence worth!


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    Yeah I don't really see any reason why vetting etc should be put off. Perhaps they don't want a back log of candidates waiting on dates for medicals/PCA at any one time.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 444 ✭✭Sthm


    I guess they're just doing smaller manageable batches every 4-5 weeks given that the merit list lasts the rest of the financial year. It would seem the batches so far were 108, 162 and now another seemingly small (108?) batch. I don't want to jinx anything, but I remain positive for any of us with a pass e-mail - near to the bottom of the pass e-mail, it states 'those passing automatically continue to the next stage'. It's hopefully more just a matter of time as to when everyone is phased now. Would love to know how many are going through the stages administered by PSNI.

    Already discussed also, the 378 number is a bit confusing as it seems to ignore the funding that was already secured under the last financial year for 100 officers. The link below was one of the first news stories on the recruitment drive which clearly referred to the 100 already secured and their hope to secure funding for a further 378 in 2014-15. Here's hoping it's for a total of 478.

    That's a good point. Here's hoping.


  • Registered Users Posts: 209 ✭✭DaveNi


    Haven't posted in a while.

    I have no doubt that we will all receive pca dates etc and that we are all still in for a shout at a position.

    When my brother applied a few years ago, he had to wait 8 months for a pca date/vetting forms, but I highly doubt any of us will need to wait that long, they need officers quickly, once they can get the funding for the further 400, (which they clearly will get) then the process will quicken up.

    Just keep using this time to train for pca, keep watching the police programmes and enjoy the spare time that you have!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 107 ✭✭Sgtmort


    Hi all, just wondering is there anyone in the delay batch that had their pca date? I've mine and don't seem to hear anyone talking about the next one
