    Excellent stuff. You'll love it - tough but very rewarding and you'll make some fantastic friends for life at the academy too. Any questions/worries/niggles, drop me a PM.
  3. New Starters

    Are you from an internal or external application process?

    I hope you guys are ready, had a chat with one of your trainers on Friday, they're really looking forward to seeing you! Any last minute jitters, PM me if you've got any questions.

    Just to give you a heads-up - don't buy an LED Lensar torch as part of your equipment purchasing. It's now standard issue

    Keep the faith guys. It's all good rumblings coming through, and whilst there's only whisperings and rumours, its stuff that should keep your chances alive and your chins up. Re the pay scales, as far as I know, you've got the opportunity to get to top band quicker than us, so long term it might well balance out over a career.

    Absolutely no steel toe-caps.

    On the first day Nevo. When you sign in on the front door, your name and colour of BCU is shown so you'll know it immediately. It's officially disclosed later when you receive your uniform. Exciting times, we're looking forward to the company!

    Fantastic news guys, congratulations. Don't go wild on buying equipment or textbooks, everything you need will be supplied. On your first day, bring a few quid for te canteen, a notebook and a black pen. And come and give us a knock so we can put faces to names! Now, in all seriousness, get bulling your boots!

    Good luck for this week guys, I hope you get the news you're looking for.

    Taking the fitness test. Thought I saw some people waiting for fitness tests in the canteen earlier.
  12. Merseyside on Hold..

    Hey guys. Any of you guys in today doing your fitness?
  13. Merseyside on Hold..

    Congratulations to you if you've received the DNA testing, once I'd completed that I had to wait about ten days before I had the dream phone call. Hopefully it won't be that much time for you guys either! Then it's the welcome pack followed by uniform fitting...it absolutely flies once you've signed on the dotted line, believe me. Happy new year :-)
  14. New Starters

    Fixed :-)

    Outstanding! That would be good...but given they've reduced the training period I doubt we'll get many like that!! Final week of work this week, gonna be weird I think but I can't wait to get in and put some faces to some names - with the exception of TrueBlue I'm not sure who I've met on here. I must have met some of you during the fitness/fingerprint stuff though
