5 answers

  • I was offered a 4-month contract to join an operation as admin staff and I was fast-tracked and within 2-weeks I started employment. I had previous PNC skills from the MET police but they had to meet a deadline to complete the operation in time.

  • Yes the BTP does require the pre-employment background checks. I am sorry but it’s not in my place to give further details about that

  • Depending on the position applied for family and household checks are done. If previously employed by another police force checks are done there too. Amount of time depends on BTP obtaining responses but they will update regarding the checks and if it is taking longer than expected.

  • Yes. DBS. not sure how long they take

  • Yes full financial and criminal history checks going back a period of 5 years financially.

    Checks differ due to length and difficulty obtaining details.
