I've had guys (& girls) having a provisional offer of service withdrawn if their Security Clearance gets knocked back (usually because of undeclared criminal convictions or poor credit record).

.

I've got a loan and a few things on finance, would the poor credit score effect me?

Only if you have CCJ's, are an undischarged bankrupt or have unresolved defaulted payments.

Ah rite. I should be fine then as I have not missed any payments so far. Was hoping to pay it all of before i joined up, however i got a date abit sooner than i thought. Not complaining tho :D

Not true Janner.

Once someone has been allocated from the waiting list, that will normally be their entry date. However, if for some reason the course was cancelled, then we need to have a get-out clause in the offer. In my 8 years in the careers the date offered ahs always been there actual entry date.

Cheers me dear. I have to admit, I find it very difficult reading your posts and have to read them two or three times before it sinks in because I always have the Super Mario theme tune in my head when doing so and picture you running up and down the deck on a ship jumping on mushrooms and turtles and the such.


Is it not feasible that my outline will come into being, why take less able lads when better are available?

It got one or two thinking a bit as well I suspect.

For Officers merit based selection already exists (ie they can pass AIB, but if somone scores better they get the job first).

The RAF used to use merit based selection for Other Ranks - we use the same personal qualities assessment scores, so it would be easy to impliment - many would suggest it's a reasonable policy when recruiting is bouyant. Already we don't bother with criminal conviction waivers unless they are stunningly exceptional in all other respects - I've only ever thought two people worthwhile in the last 6 years out of 734 candidates I've processed as their careers adviser (I checked today!).

We no longer bother with discretionary points for 'near misses' on the Recruiting Test - so we're certainly getting a bit more picky, that's for sure. Not like when I joined (Obviously :wink: )

Thanks NS, I must get around to putting on thread how it was when I joined in 1960, a different world

So did I, but I thought that the humour and antics were closer to the mark

Ten Top Gene Hunt Quotes:

Daily Telegraph said:
1. Hunt: They reckon you've got concussion – but personally, I couldn't give a tart's furry cup if half your brains are falling out. Don't ever waltz into my kingdom playing king of the jungle.

Tyler: Who the hell are you?
Hunt: I'm Gene Hunt. Your DCI. And it's 1973. Nearly dinner time. I'm 'aving hoops

2. Hunt: You're nicked for the murder of Delphine Parks, the rape and attempted murder of Nina Akiboa. Anything you say will be taken down, ripped up and shoved down your scrawny little throat until you've choked to death. Gene Hunt chapter 1 verse 2.

3. Hunt to Alex Drake: Shall we go back to some proper policing? A bit of admin? I need to stamp your arse

Drake: I beg your pardon?

Hunt: It's tradition when the woman joins the Met, skirt up, stamp your bum with the days date and down the pub.

4. Hunt to Alex Drake: Stop moaning. What’s up with you this morning! You haven’t got the decorators in again have we?

5. Suspect: I want a lawyer.

Hunt: I want to hump Britt Ekland, what are we gonna do?

6. Hunt: Now is not the time to have a one-night stand with your conscience.

7. Hunt to female police officer: Listen luv, how about you detect me some Garibaldi biscuits to go with this cuppa

8. Hunt: What I call a dream involves Diana Doors and a bottle of chip oil.

9. Hunt: Gene Hunt smashes doors down he does not pick girlie locks.

10. Hunt: Take that seat belt off! You're a police officer, not a bloody vicar.

Every one a gem.
