Hi, I didn't go to reserve.
There were around 11 months of very little activity and then, all within the final two to three weeks, I got my security clearance, a formal offer, and the induction and training start dates!
Bloody hell mad or what! Well it's just sit and wait now, cheers

The one thing I can tell you is that it's an omnishambles (and probably going to get worse now...)

Many of the people I work with come from other law enforcement bodies and they all say the same:
"I thought the Police/Prison Service/whatever was bad but this makes them seem efficient!"

Be prepared to have your patience tested, it's a good job and the people are great though.

It's very variable - it can depend on arrivas and schedules. If one big flight comes in late and bunches up with another then you'll get a gap in flow but a real rush when they offload together that is hard to cope with. The general feeling is that we're stretched most of the time though.
