Thanks for your message. I had a bit of a nightmare with recruitment to be honest. I applied back in January, called them up in June for an update. Was told over the phone I'd passed papersift no problems and they would send out a day 1 invitation within 2 months. One month later I get an email from HR saying I've failed the papersift and not to try again for 6 months!
I'm still interested in joining the force as the amount of training you guys get really appeals to me, but for now I'm stuck working in a BTP custody - not too bad a job but would prefer to be with the CNC.
Out of interest, I've heard conflicting views, but what exactly are the specialisms you can go into for the CNC? Someone told me there were opportunities to do surveillance, public order etc but someone else said it was just SFO, dog handler or SB roles.
