    Police Scotland June intake 2018

    No, not yet. Just read joining instructions last night and there is a fair bit to get. Reference boots, I would thouroughly recommend 'Altberg Warriors'. I was in the Army for 8 years and went through many dofferent kind of boots but these ticked all the boxes.

    I've never doubted what you said. I was only saying that we have had different communication from our SMT. They did say not to hand notice in but certainly didn't mention having it in line with notice periods. As my OP suggest, I was expecting it sooner rather than later. And I certainly hope so for us all😆 I think I may qualify for one of those degress too lol

    Hey, yeah I was hoping for the same thing. I was obviously under the wrong impression though as I was expecting to be told quite soon. Nevermind. We are all used with the wait now lol. I just dont remember anyone at Aberdeen being told they wont find out until 4 weeks before. Like I stated before hopefully thats the story down Glasgow way and that we will find out earlier because I still believe the North East is going through slighty quicker. Fingers crossed.

    Never knew that, so that is news to me thanks. Yeah I did but I though for some reason it would happen alot sooner hence my post(purely on diviosional requirements). The 4 weeks before as 1869 said is news to me.

    Hi guys, I am needing some advice regarding References. I did try via another thread but had no joy. I am currently a Joiner and its a dog eat dog world and you move jobs quite abit. In January I was approached by a Man for me to work for him. Anyway 4 weeks down the line the guy let me go. (Basically because 2 other boys jacked in and he lost a contract). So I found myself out of a job. When 'he let me go' over the phone he said he would give me a good reference, however a day after I tried ringing him and he never answered. Later on through friends I have heard that he is not a great employer and is well known in the area for it. (I am new to my area). I then went self employed and have been since (7 weeks now). So I had to provide a character reference which was fine. But they also needed one of the man and company I mentioned above. Yesterday I tried to ring him to get my P45 (so I can do my tax return). He did not answer. Also I text him, no reply. I basically have no confidence at all that this guy will give me a reference but if he did it would be a one to mess my chances up. As for my other references, I imagine they would be as good as you can get, including 1 from a Warrant Officer in the Army as I had excemplary conduct. Any advice would be great if anyone has been through a similar thing. Cheers

    Me too. 30th April for FF and Smt. Again and likewise... they said to me they have not the numbers for June intake as if yet. I am A division. For anyone wondering, I did speak to recruitment a few month back after I was deferred at medical and they told me that they take AC passes first. For example, I passed in November 17 ...and would most likely be loaded into June untake before somebody who passes in say February etc etc.

    Hi guys, finally passed the medical after being deferred. Relief! Had an email saying they were working towards the June intake (A division) but they were still awaiting intake numbers. I have my next query. Reference. I am in building trade and on one occasion a job didnt work out for me and I am just not sure I can rely on said employer for a reference. He said he would give me a good one but the guy is just not trust worthy and is well known in the trade for it. I have however some very reliable references. Anyone else been in a similar situation?
