    Vetting normally just goes on in the background and no news is good news.

    Just a wee reminder that they informed us last Friday that final offers will go out on the basis of who needs the most notice.

    Please don't over complicate things. Understanding the competency is the key and if you use the star method effectively you should hit the descriptors without over thinking on them. (just my opinion) Good Luck

    They must be cutting it close to the wire as it will take at least a week to have the results of the SMTs all back. A week on Monday will be the four week notice period.

    They don't normally go out until four weeks before a start date.

    I would concentrate on making sure you understand the competencies as they will put questions to you in ways you wont expect so having a sound understanding will let you adjust your answers to suit. This is just my opinion however.

    As far as I am aware vetting happens before you will be asked for a final fitness and smt. (after your medical) It normally goes on behind the scenes and you wont know anything about it unless there is a problem.

    I've been working as a Special for over a year now and have enjoyed it every shift. It may just give you that little bit of extra confidence and experience for a second attempt. However it will not give you any special treatment as far as recruitment goes, but it will let you understand what the job entails. Good luck and keep your chin up.
