P.C.S.O Process

Post by mag » Fri Jun 14, 2013 12:45 pm

Afternoon all.

I have just recieved a letter inviting me back for a fitness test following my interview with staffs for a pcso position. All that's left to do after the fitness test is the medical and vetting process. Now, from my understanding there are 14 positions available, would they invite more than 14 people for the fitness test, medical and vetting process and then decide who to appoint following the completion of the entire process?

Regards

To be fair alot of people fail the fitness test, which is being chased by a group of youths around a 400m track whilst in an oversized high vis jacket...you'll be doing a lot of that along with sitting in the back seat if a police car.PCSO's aren't allowed to sit in front. Good luck and enjoy the lefty diversity/multiculturism divisive brain washing on the course.

Are you serious? What a rubbish reply...honestly! :slgw:


Hi mag and welcome to the site :w2:

Its really difficult to know what HR/recruitment have in mind. It varies from force to force and from intake to intake within every force.
Don't be tempted to call HR every day to ask as the individual will know as little as you.
Just give yourself a "well done" pat on the back that you have made it past the most difficult bits. The fitness test should be easy enough if you are reasonably healthy (not a couch potato with spaghetti arms).

Resign yourself to the fact that you may not make a 2013 intake so if you do it will be a bonus. Keep us updated on how you get on :slsm:

Good luck!

Whilst not very helpful to what was a fair question by a new poster I have to say that it just sounded like good old fashioned tongue in cheek Police cynicism...not to be taken seriously...... :slww:
