    Gloucestershire Recruitment

    Rgr, will wait out. Cheers for your help.
  2. Evening, I was wondering if anyone who's applied to Gloucestershire has heard anything back about their online assessments. They closed at 1600 yesterday so was hoping for an email saying one way or the other today. Cheers

    Moving from the army to police

    I can certainly rustle up a good " I can certainly rustle up a good "pre-briefing" brew.

    Moving from the army to police

    Cheers for everyone's responses. Hopefully being a graduate and ex-miltary will cover all the bases. Plus hopefully the job I do in the army will help. Looking into doing volunteer work too. Cheers for all your help!
  6. Apologies if this has been covered but I am after some information on how easy people have found it to transfer from the military into the police. Currently serving with the army and considering long-term options. Are there any rumblings about recruitment from the military in the reforms. Not expecting any special treatment but we're unable to volunteer as a special and it's always worth asking. Cheers, Andy
  7. Hi, Just got my scores back from an application I made ages ago to Gwent. Was wondering how the scores break down. I though they were graded A, B, C etc. but mine are numerical. Any ideas? Cheers, Andy

    self harm application

    Firstly, self-harm/related psychiatric problems definitely would NOT come under the remit of equality and diversity/positive action teams. Secondly the question you seem to be asking is SHOULD the OP be accepted. Possibly, if the SH was a long time ago and mental causes have been dealt with. The question the OP is asking is WOULD they get in. Given the current desperate scrabble for every app and the huge numbers of people applying they can afford to be fussy so possibly not. To the OP, check with the recruitment people of your local force, ignore the arguments about whether you SHOULD get in and be completely honest on your application form. If it's written anywhere on any database they will find out and if you haven't claimed it you don't stand a chance. Andy

    I know that West Mids run college course in conjunction with Wolverhampton College. Not sure whether it's necessary to get in bu certainly can't do any harm.

    To include or not...

    Thanks for the replies. Will take the advice and include it. Sykes I wasn't suggesting that I should hide relevant information, I was wondering whether it was relevant in the first place, therefore there's probably no need to have a chat with myself. Cheers for the advice!
  11. Hi, Quick(ish) question...in December 2007 I hit a cyclist while driving - she moved into my path without looking or signalling so she was liable. All fine at the time but about a week later I got a letter from West Mercia saying that there was an allegation of driving without due care and attention based on this incident. I was called in for an interview and got told the 'you do not have to say anything etc.'. The officer told me afterwards that he was pretty convinced it wasn't my fault and would recommend no further action. Got a letter a couple of weeks later saying that nothing further was going to happen about it. What I want to know is...as this wasn't my fault and nothing further happened do I need to include this in my application form? I've spoken to someone from recruitment and they said to include it to be on the safe side. I appreciate that this would be the wisest thing to do but I'm very reluctant to put any unnecessary information on there that could be misinterpreted if not read properly. I would love some advice. Thanks, Andy
