references and vetting

Post by alctel » Fri Mar 09, 2012 2:18 pm

Hello

Just a quick question

I applied for South Wales PCSO and have successfully passed all stages including medical and fitness.
Having completed a security questionnaire at the start of the week it seems all i am waiting for is the vetting and references to be completed.
Does anyone know how long this usually takes?
I have ever had a run in with the law and have a good credit history along with a clean family history.
Would this speed things up?

Any replies are appreciated

Kind regards

Z

Patience alctel. It shouldn't take more than a week or two, but a considerable number of potential recruits are being processed so the system is bound to get a little clogged.

Welcome to the Board by the way, and good luck :slby:

Hey alctel. Do you recall how long after the application form you heard back for the assessment/interview stage?
I too have just applied for South Wales. Good luck.
