  1. They don't tell you vetting has started, an they've not told me why my vetting failed waiting on a reply from my freedom of information request.
  2. So after a 10 month application process, moving home to Merseyside, leaving the Army, and relocating my family I receive an email today "application has been unsuccessful during the Pre-Employment Checks - There is no appeal procedure regarding this decision." no reason was given. So is that it then.. can't even appeal?
  3. At what stage of the application process does the vetting stage start does anyone know?
  4. Fitness test booked for 1st Sept great post very useful
  5. That's how I got into it, when I joined the Army I never went the Gym at all until I bumped into a lad on my course that went everyday, he sorta persuaded me to go with him to help spot him an that, an I eventually got hooked 12 Months later and I'm still going 5 days a week. ​Same can work for you and I advise you to get an App called Fitness Point, it shows you loads of exercises for each muscle group, so if your training Arms on Monday for example you can just search through the Arms exercises on the app and do a few of them knowing your doing the right exercise for that muscle group.
  6. Oh don't get me wrong I got what you were saying ofcourse, if it does the job then crack on after all you just need a quick fix to get through the medical then you could look at more long term solutions after getting in :)
  7. Fine for a few weeks but not really a sustainable
  8. High Protien low Carb diets with plenty of weight training and early morning cardio, don't skip on the weight training as that's what will help to burn the most fat, cardio is great but to much of it and your body will get used to it and start storing fat to use as energy during your next run. ​I follow the cave man rule: Ask yourself before you put anything in your mouth, "could a cave man eat this" if the answers "no" then it's bad for you, if the answer is yes then generally it's good for you, the pincicple is a cave man couldn't ever eat anything proccessed so no coke or microwave meals, stick to meat and veg and you can't go wrong just make sure your eating sensible portions. ​Another good thing to think of is think of your stomach as a fire, if you throw a big heavy log onto a fire then it will take ages to burn, however chop the log into smaller peices and throw them peices on throughout the day, the peices will burn away easier, that's the same with your body you throw a 900 calorie meal down your throat your stomach will struggle to deal with the load and will most likely just store allot of it to deal with at a later date, split that large meal into smaller chunks and eat throughout the day your body will progressively have time to deal with the load, giving you sustained energy throughout the day and your metabolism burning constantly.
  9. nvm I've found a nice little area of Huddersfeild that's right on the junction for the M62 that we could potentially move to IF I got the job so drama avoided, there's great transports links from Huddersfield city centre for Leeds, Bradford and York so the Mrs will be fine with work. Thanks again for the replies guys :)
  10. Ahh excellent I've not even had my final interview yet so I'm probebly getting ahead of myself, the only issue I have is the M62 if I hit traffic which could happen often of commuting during peek hours, however my mother lives in a town just outside of Liverpool so I could in theory stay there some nights and commute the other nights. If rather not rock the boat so to speak I'm not even in yet and already asking questions about moving if I raised these questions to Merseyside it could ruin my chances of joining all together. I'll just take everyday as it comes and if it means commuting I'll try that first and if it doesn't work then find a solution. Thanks for the replies guys :) Wow sorry ignore the poor grammar and spelling mistakes haha using my phone
  11. Hi I am currently in the process of applying to join Merseyside Police after deciding to leave the Army. I got a little excited when first applying and applied to the first force within 100miles of were I am living now that were recruiting which was Merseyside, I grew up in Merseyside and know the area very well so it would have been perfect however, I am currently living near York and since completing and passing the assessment centre the Mrs has been offered a fantastic career opportunity which requires her to remain living were we are. Now I've looked at commuting and it's at least a 2 hour drive from were we are now to Merseyside and I've compromised and said we can move 1 hour from Liverpool and 1 hour from York however haven't really found a suitable Village/Town that suits us. ​I'm looking at all options and was wondering would there be a chance of moving my application to another force like West Yorkshire or even North? I've heard a rumour I can reapply and use my old assessment centre results with a new application, not sure how true that is though. Or if anyone commutes an hour to Merseyside already and could suggest some places to live that are as near to Yorkshire as possible? ​Thanks.
  12. Hopefully this will change peoples views on there gun laws.
  13. I'm currently going through the process with Merseyside too as you already know. And I also live in a small town near Burnley, although it's not really west yorkshire way it's the opposite way. To fulfil my specials duties I commute an it takes about an hour. It's bearable but it is fairly annoying. I also know someone who commutes from blackburn every day as they are a police officer in merseyside. It's your choice really and you've got to find the right balance. Just remember that it will take an extra two hours out of your already long day. In response to your other topic, if you are aligned to a response block Merseyside work. I can't remember the exact pattern but it's probably the best shift pattern you'll get. Days 0700 -1600/1700 Afternoons 1400-0000 Nights 2200-0700 Thanks for your reply, tbh I think an hours commute would be perfect the wife is originally from near Merseyside and she has no intentions of ever moving back, we wanted to settle for Yorkshire but I think a small town Burnley, Blackburn area will be the best of both worlds, not to far to travel and as near to Yorkshire as possible without me having to drive to far to work, I really don't mind driving if I'm honest when I was based in Dorset I'd drive 240miles every Friday to get home and then 240miles on a Sunday to go back to work, so an hour will feel like nothing really. My only concerns now is hoping that the Mrs can find employment in what ever town that we decide as with me taking a pay cut (if accepted) after joining we'd require both our wages to comfortably cover our cost of living. ​The day shift is very similar to what I work now so that wouldn't make much of a difference really, and with all shifts it appears that I'd avoid any sort of rush hours driving to work so that's also a bonus. ​Thanks again for your reply.
  14. Merseyside taking over the forum! :) welcome to the site
  15. I have one warning for you! There's only two seasons and there won't be a third - 6 Episodes in each! Only one season is on British Netflix, although if you're technical and desperate to watch the second season, you can use a VPN or proxy to access the American Netflix, which bizarrely has both seasons! American Netflix has more episodes on an English based drama than the British Netflix..... typical... haha thanks :)
