  1. Advice needed please

    Personally I do not think you should tell your employer. Not because you don't have integrity but because you haven't been offered the job yet. You could tell your employer and then for a number of reasons not be offered the police officer job...what kind of position does that put you in then?! I'm not suggesting you will fail of course but you have to consider it. There is still interview, medical, fitness and of course vetting to overcome just yet. Yes things look like they have moved along quickly so far which is brilliant for you (mine took a year start to finish!) but I would say that completing all of that within less than 3 months is optimistic. You also have to serve your notice which at a guess is 4 weeks? So that takes you to then end of June which is 6 weeks... even less likely. Your employer has no reasonable right to expect to know if you are applying for another job unless of course they are making some sort of considerable financial commitment, but this is only my view. But like you said, you applied after you were given this placement. The integrity issue here would have been to accept it having applied beforehand. But even then it's still somewhat ambiguous in my view. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Vetting

    I could be wrong but I really wouldn't have thought it mattered... it's your partners debt, not yours. Also it's not excessive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Assessment centre pass mark.

    The maths test counts for about 3% of the overall mark. As long as you can add/divide/subtract/multiply and work out the percentage you'll be ok. You are provided with a calculator. Focus on your role plays and interview competency examples. They carry the most weight along with your ability to communicate effectively. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Assessment centre pass mark.

    It depends on which force you are applying to. I've seen it as high as 60% but as low as 50%. Merseyside is currently 50%. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Failed Vetting - Appeal letter?

    Depending on what it is, you could consider living at a different address to your brother and asking them to reconsider? It may be difficult to get a precise answer though if it in fact a 3rd party. I wish you well though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Hey!

    Hi! How did you get on with your application? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hey!

    Good luck. There is plenty of help on these pages as you go through the process. Which force have you applied to? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Changing Application To Another Force.

    It might be worth just speaking to other forces and gauging their opinion. Merseyside wouldn't know about it obviously so you wouldn't be rocking the boat, although I understand your worry. Keep us posted pal, hopefully we'll hear something on final interview this week [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Changing Application To Another Force.

    It'll depend on where you're posted as well. If you're North side of Liverpool, maybe Sefton or Knowsley then that's not to bad for your commute. I'd imagine they would base you over that way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Changing Application To Another Force.

    Hey man. Yeah, I know of someone who transferred their application for one force to another. They passed AC with Lancs but then transferred to Merseyside. That was down to location also. Merseyside were recruiting at the time so I'm guessing whoever you choose to transfer to will have to also be recruiting. In addition, you'll need to check what the AC pass mark is for the force you want to move to. Merseyside's pass was 50% were other forces can be 55 or 60%. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
