Thank you for accepting me onto the forum. After applying to HMP Erlestoke last July I’ve finally completed vetting and am just waiting for them to get in touch re. contracts and stuff. I’m 26 and have worked in the civil service for a research funder for the last 5 years as well as studying a social policy and criminology degree. Drawn to working in the prison service because of friends and family members who have been through the justice system both in the UK and in the US.
Applied - July RAD - September (passed all apart from beep test) Retook beep test and passed - December OH questionnaire- same day OH assessment- meant to be January but they rang wrong number so I had to wait until Feb Vetting - Steria updated on Friday last week to say vetting finished and they’ll be in touch
