Hi,

How many of you out there are currently going through the recruitment process with Grampian Police? If so, what stage are you at, do you have a start date etc etc

Would be good to hear from you all.

Hi Ashley, the initial interview is fairly painless. Consider it a fact finding process for them to find out about you and you them. Just do your research, good luck.

Hi, I applied back in June and just heard passed my medical so just waiting to hear if vetting has been passed and hopefully get a start date. Initial interview is fine.just make sure you know about the force and have answers on core competencies. Make sure you are fit. No point Even applying if you think you won't pass fitness test. I found final interview hard but prepared weeks on end for it so felt prepared but was still tough interview. I think there's an intake at tulliallen on 7th January 13' so a few will be on that. Good luck to everyone going through the process. Only advice I would give is be prepared.

Hey famguy,

How did you hear about possible start date of 7th Jan? I'll be having my medical soon, should be fine but also waiting for vetting too. How long have you been waiting for vetting to come back?

Mine's might take longer, in fact sure of it cause of my Service. Ah well, apparently waiting is a big thing during the recruitment process

Yeah it was, waiting for medical now, it was quite a long wait to begin with, but once you've had the first assessment day they seem to get people through quite quickly. Are you coming out of the forces?

Been out nearly 2 years, but I read on the application that HM service will be checked on from the start.

The whole process took just under 6 months for me from start to finish. I start with Grampian on 5th Nov. Vetting took the longest, about a month.

How much notice did they give you of your start date? Do you have any idea of when the next intake will be?
