  1. BTP look like they will be recruiting soon for Scotland for both Specials and Regular officers. There is events that are being held in Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Go to the recruitment pages and click events for details. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Just wondering if anyone else is due to start with the BTP? Thought it might be good to see if anyone else is in the same boat :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I've got Perth :-) Dunno if it would be of interest to you Stu but there is control room jobs going for Police Scotland. Would be a good In and experience. If not then would definitely Recommend the specials :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Did you get an email today? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I'm going through the pre-employment checks currently. What about yourself? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah sorry about that haha ... The Specials is something I did for nearly 7 years with Tayside Police / Police Scotland. Was an excellent insight into policing and an amazing experience. Unfortunately had to give it up after I qualified in my current job. Think most people I spoke to at the fitness test were either specials (current and former) with police Scotland or BTP.

  7. No the merger is not likely before 2019! Apologies! Think they will still be looking to recruit until they are informed otherwise. I'm in the pool still waiting to be allocated from the last recruitment campaign Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Think it is still under the consultation period and if it were to happen it is likely to be 2019 at the earliest. There is still a few candidates with conditional offers in the pool system from the last recruitment drive which are away to be allocated an intake soon. Keep a wee eye out anyway. Think they will keep recruiting until informed otherwise :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Just the bleep. All forces in England and Wales abs BTP have the same fitness test. Police Scotland it is a bleep test and the pas score dependent on gender and age. A male <29 must reach 9.2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Bleep test 15m to level 5.4. If going for the regs the college will expect the same level of fitness as Police Scotland Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. How was it then - didn't realise there was different assessment times ... I was at 2pm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Here's hoping. Had a practice shot last night - managed to get my paws on a sports hall. U? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah checked my email there. I stand corrected - it is the first :-) gets it done! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Cheers and well done to you too! Where are you hoping to be based? Most people I spoke to on the day were wanting Glasgow. I'm hoping for Perth :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Cheers and well done to you too! Where are you hoping to be based? Most people I spoke to on the day were wanting Glasgow.

  15. Hey Frisby- I was at the Assessment Centre as well. Usually with interviews you have an idea of how it went but this time I didn't have a clue what way it would go. Was chuffed when I got the email! No word yet of a date for the fitness? I'm thinking its unlikely to be the 1st now ... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
