    Hampshire recruitment - anyone?

    I know it probably won't affect you guys but my group (assessment in Nov 16) got an email over the Christmas period telling us that our earliest possible start date will be Jan 2018 - bummer.
  2. A minimum 12 month wait, could be up to 24 should no intakes take place in the first half of 2018. Also could always happen that they pull or significantly reduce the 2018 intake. I'm considering all options and in some respect don't want to sit around for at least12 months when there's no guarantees.
  3. Force I passed assessment with have told me that my application is still being processed just that we will not be on an intake before Jan 18 at the earliest. Of course the 12 month rule does apply if I was to transfer, I took SEARCH in Nov16.
  4. Hello all, Recently been told by my force that it's unlikely I will be starting before Jan 2018, this is despite filling out forms and signing declarations stating we wouldn't book any annual leave in 2017. Passed an in house interview and SEARCH to get to this point. Considering transferring my application to another force. Does anyone have any experience positive/negative about this process? Many thanks

    Did you people get any luck with application processes?
  6. Of course you are correct and I must say that my question was partly to hear how others managed. You are totally correct that it would be foolish to take your eye off the ball and let it adversely affect your current employment - luckily I am in a job which I enjoy and will actually be sad to miss in the future.
  7. I'd be interested to hear how others maintained high levels of motivation during the seemingly never ending recruitment process? It doesn't help when you're in one job (non police) but looking forward to leaving at some point in the future to take up the new career that you've been waiting for for well over 8/9/10 months.
  8. Cheers - you were correct. Actually passed initial interview in Sept (Hants) and SEARCH in Nov (Hants) - waiting for confirmation of dates for fitness and pre employment stuff...slow progress.

    Anyone still waiting for their individual feedback report to be sent to them?

    When you guys undertook the fitness and medical was it on the same day? Did you have to do the push/pull strength part or just the bleep test?

    And the email was received this afternoon. Big relief to read that I was successful at assessment.

    So far everything has been over email and it has been moving along quite nicely. I recall in the debrief after SEARCH being told it'll be aprox 14 days (working) from last day of assessments which was Friday 11th Nov.

    No news yet. Yourself? I am slightly unclear if they will be sent via email or post.
