Hi. Ive also applied to WetherbyYOI. Ive been on the merit list a few weeks. This is a merit campaign and they wont issue jobs out until the recruitment closes on 28th September and RADs can continue for another 2months from that date as far as I am aware anyways(if im incorrect can someone please verify).
Unfortunately theres no more recruitment around yorkshire other than wetherby so its a waiting game until other prisons come up. Nottingham is the closest and think just missed out on manchester and doncaster.
Think im going to see out the new year but keep keeping an eye open for other places close to me.
Hope this helps and good luck.
I’m on merit list for new hall, Leeds, wealston and also lindholme and moorland think rads still ongoing for the 2 Doncaster ones but I’m hopinh they use merit lists for them before opening Yorkshire area again Doncaster closed be July I think and new hall one closed May 3 months waiting so far
I am also on the Merit List for Leeds,New Hall and Wealston...Passed my RAD in April and been waiting since.
