    Yeah I literally received the email at 19:30 this evening. There is hope for everyone I would say between now and Friday they will be flat out getting the files signed off.

    Got an offer. Problem is I want to finish my degree which will be done in May. Has anyone deferred until July? And what are the chances I would be called for July if I do defer?

    A few people have deferred to finish degrees in time for the next round, not overly uncommon! Did your offer come today?

    Got it yesterday evening. Just unsure of what to do. There's no point quitting my course as I'm in my fourth year with only just over a month left

    I’d say they would have no prob deferring you till July. Give them a call and get the ball rolling ASAP

    I deferred April offer some weeks ago for degree also. I was told that if you are signed off for April, you would most likely get July, however there is a chance you wouldn't if your OOM was high, for example I was 400s so if 200 people below me in OOM or in previous campaigns (2016/2017) get signed off & get offers for July I wouldn't get July and probably be December.

    But it would be quite unlikely. Also if you are deferring for a degree, when calling HRM they seem very supportive and encouraging in having you complete the degree when advising about the deferral.

    That's good to hear. I'm mid 200s so should be almost sure of a place in July hopefully. I just emailed hrm and they have asked my college and course so it looks promising

    Got my email lastnight, from June 2017 campaign and starting in April. Vetting took a while but not as long as some of the other people here, did my PCT last Sept, so been waiting since then.

    I've a bit of a situation myself though, I'm getting married in August so was looking to get a week off for it, wasn't sure if I was getting in before then or not so have everything booked. I did talk to a Sergeant in Templemore about a week ago about getting that week off, he was very polite and helpful and did say it should be ok assuming I was starting in July, I will give him a ring back and see what's the story now but what do you's think, getting a week off half way through possible?

    Got my offer!! From the June 2017 campaign, and literally up until yesterday my vetting was still not cleared. If anyone is in that boat the only answer is stay ringing them and hounding them because I honestly think that helped.

    Got told on Tues my vetting came back just that morning and now awaiting sign off. Never thought I'd see the day that happening.. From 2017 and all other bits done nearly a year ago. What's the chances of getting in April? Well done btw

    Quick question has anyone from the 2018 campaign got an offer for April or is the vast majority of people from 2018.

    I don’t understand how signing off takes longer for some people and not others

    I don’t understand it either.. I don’t know what to be at, am I going or not, I’m always checking my emails


  • Registered Users Posts: 32 NYB


    Any offers today?


  • Registered Users Posts: 87 ✭✭ Hoopy1888


    From 2017 campaign and just found out my vetting came back Wednesday morning after over a year calling and getting the same "vetting still outstanding answer"
    Medical and physical are done since last April and may.
    Next step is that it goes to commission for sign off.
    What are my chances for April? Cheers

    I'd say there is a good chance, from what I heard they were struggling to fill April so fingers crossed you might be in luck.

    Lad if you go back through this forum you’ll see a rake load of us that have been sent for sign off since before Christmas and still nothing.
    I reckon that if anything minor flags up the main man himself has to give it a once over and not just his team .

    Thanks, thought the vetting would of covered all this and it fairly straight forward

    Anyone else worried about getting an offer because they've let their fitness slide?

    How long after you start in Templemore do you have to do the PCT again? What happens if you fail and how many times do you have to do the PCT in the 32 weeks and then Phase II and III anyone know?

    Probably a little off topic, but anyone know for sure if you can work on a Saturday while you're in the college? I was talking to a Guard about it and he said no, pretty much but didn't overly sound confident in his answer.

    You can as long as it’s not in a list of industries set by them and doesn’t impact your work or duties during college

    Thanks for the reply mate, it's in retail and is 9-6 on a Sat so don't think it would be a job in their list. ðŸ‘
