Application process for transferees.

Recommended Posts

Hello all

This is my first posting on this site and would like some helpful info from anyone who has transfered to CNC from a HO Force.

I'm currently a Police Officer in Northumbria Police where I have been for eight years.

Due to many reasons I have decided a change is in order and I'm interested in joining the CNC Police. I believe I know what the role as a CNC Officer consists of but I would like to ask a few more questions.

1. Due to transfering from another force will I be required to attend assessment centres and fitness tests?

2. Will I be required to complete the full basic training again? (Centrex???)

3. If successful would I start on my current pay level?

4. Can I transfer my pension?

5. Due to government cuts are there going to be any nasty changes in the near future for the CNC? (eg pay freezes, pension changes or general job spec changes)

Thanks in advance people. Your help will be appreciated!

dont do it!!!!!!!!!!

that would be opinion and the opinion of the many transferees i know(including some from northumbria)stick with the security of H/O and the H/O pension.

Thanks

I was cnc from scratch.we have a lot of H/O at our unit and not many,in fact i dont actually know any that thinks it was a good move.

Due to the current state of affairs in our force,its not going to improve.

As soon as H/O start recruiting again theres going to be flood of applicants from the cnc.

once youre in the cnc,you cannot transfer back to H/O,its the full process all over again

Thanks for your reply CNC Pete

Are there any "specific" reasons they regret the move?

Life in Northumbria isn't all rosie at the minute. We are having a two year freeze on pay which also includes the incremental pay (which we have been told we won't be getting back after the two years!!!). Specialist posts are getting dispanded including mine (Area Support Group) and the chances of getting onto any other specialist post within the next few years is bordering on the impossible which means a few years back on 24/7 shift again, which I have done and enjoyed before but I'm wanting something different. Dealing with domestics/harassments/drunks wears a bit thin after a while!!!

I have lived in the West Cumbria area and still have family there so CNC at Sellafield would appeal to me.

Do you know if I would have to go through the whole recruitment/training process again or is it a straight transfer? (I know I will have to complete a firearms course)

Thanks

the force is going through a transition period at the moment probably breaking away from being a police constabulary and introducing short term contracts/different pay structure/annual fitness assesments/different disciplinary procedures for failing re-shoots etc etc add to that sites closing and not knowing where youre going to be based year from year at some sites(sellafield will never close though) has affected morale to the point of PCs retraining in new careers/going to uni or even waiting on H/O recruting or crossing over to british energy guard force.

if your happy to move back to west cumbria and spend youre career at sellafield then its entirely a decision you would have to make,it helps that youve lived in the area before,as a lot of people especially from the cities find it hard to adjust.

As for getting in,i believe you would have to do a couple of weeks classroom conversion,learning about the force,drinking gallons of tea then a firearms course which i think is 8 weeks long now.

Hope this helps mate
