Are you referring to BF jobs?

That's OK wanted to check first. There are quite a few threads on here about BF. One of the longest ones is Border Force Officer / Assistant 2018. It has tons of info on there and people who have applied and waiting. In a nutshell, there's no pattern or anything to suggest the recruitment process and timings. Top scorers usually get picked first depending on what slots there are to fill. Myself, and a few others have just been offered roles after applying as far back as April and November 18 campaigns. Basically it's a slow process so don't give up!

I passed mine with 37 points and was put on the reserve list on 09/07. The next day I was given a provisional offer. I am transferring over from the prison service though which may speed things up.

Hello Emilia, Yes I am in the same boat, got 31 points "strong demonstration". I was Interviewed on 28 June 2020 via video link for the RTF role (May 2020 applications). Email of the interview outcome received within a week after the interview. Have been put on a reserve list. No movements since.

Any movements from your end.?

Thanks.

It’s a new team, I was trying to research some information about it, but very little found. Oh I’d love to ask them few questions and find out about that role!

That's the role I'll be starting in 2 weeks. Heard from my new manager the other day. The role, duties, shift pattern it all sounds really good!

Do you mind getting on tour with me privately and tell me a bit more. Of course I understand some things are not to be said but just anything ...

Congratulations !! did your manager say any thing about the training ? I contacted the recruitment team and they told me that the training will be 5-10 weeks, but when I spoke with someone in the RTF he told me that it will be 13-14 weeks. May be due to Covid situation training length would change but do you have any update regarding this ?

Thanks.

Its a shift pattern, early, late and nights. depending on your location it could be either 10 hour or 12 hour shift. You travel around and do a variety of work. You always get day offs to compensate with your shift patterns.

Once your training is completed you get 48.65% AHA allowance in addition to your basis salary( 27k - 31k). Please see my above question regarding the training I have asked from Pcdc405.

For the training you will be away and stay in a hotel for some weeks (back home for weekends) wont be able to take leave in this period. However, due to current circumstance, I am not sure how the training would work out. I think for us Croydon seems like an ideal place for the training.
Hope this helps.

Yeah no worries. Where we going on tour? Haha. So far, I'm not aware anything which has been passed which is confidential. Apart from personal details.

Thanks. Been a long time coming. The only thing I've been told about training is there will be a few weeks at home training. I've got one course booked for end of August and I won't receive joining instructions until about 2 weeks before that. I should have my start date confirmed soon so in roughly 2 weeks I'll attend and do admin bits, have photo ID done and have a tour of the airport. When I can find some concrete information about the training I'll be doing I'll let you. As RTF is multi skilled I'm guessing there will be lots of training. It's all good though. Live and learn.
