Newbie here, a little about me, I'm 21 from Cambridge. Recently left the Royal marines and looking for a career in the police.
I have applied previously numerous times over the years as a special constable, unfortunately never heard back from any applications.
Bringing it forward to 2012, Cambridgeshire police were recruiting for the first time in ages. Luckily I passed the application and passed PIRT.
But here is where the problem lies, I have my date for SEARCH at Ryton, 29th August. But unfortunately I have a holiday booked 27th-8th to the Caribbean with the girlfriend, which has been booked for months and was unfortunately very expensive!
I rang the recruitment team but unfortunately the lady I spoke to was unable to help me, I did explain that I had a rather expensive holiday booked prior and that it is too close to the date to get any sort of refund. Therefore I am over £1k out of pocket.
Is there anyway I can have the date changed? As at PIRT they did say the next assessment would be on either the 20th or the 27th. The 29th was never mentioned.
If I can't change the date I guess I'm going to have to suck it up and lose £1K.
