I rang the Recruitment department this morning and was told the exact same thing that I have been told on the numerous times that I have phoned them. The lady told me that the Chief Officers have still not come to a decision and she does not know when they will be coming to one, and said for me to keep ringing up every few weeks to see if there is any new news.

Still nothing from SWP about recruitment, spoke to Gwent who are still recruiting, don't know what to do because i really want to join South Wales. Patience is a virtue!!! (I hope, lol)

BAD NEWS GUYS, I spoke to a very high ranking SWP officer yesterday who made a quick call for me about special recruitment, and apparently the freeze on recruitment is going to be for at least another 6 months.:)

Hi Keiron,

I also applied for SWP Specials in March 2010 and failed the papersift, it seems to be that they are very strict at this stage -
(I say this as I applied to BTP and passed the initial papersift and was invited to an assessment centre; however due to circumstances at the time I could not commit myself to travelling to Birmingham for training had I taken and passed the assessment centre).

To my knowledge SWP usually recruit at around March time every year or so; but as many others have commented on this forum - SWP currently have quite a lot of applicants to process from a considerable time ago (such as is unavoidable with recruitment).

So just to summarise, I am hoping they will open their books for recruitment in March however it might be considerably longer all depending on budgets and funding etc.

If the worse comes to the worse, I suggest trying DPP again and also look towards Gwent, or North Wales -

Possibly West Mercia as well?

Best of luck to all - ;)

Does anyone know anything about when SWP will be recruiting next? I am able to apply again next week.
I phoned bridgend a few days ago and they just stated that there aren't any vacancies yet and just to keep checking website.

Any info would be good :D

Thanks,
Keiron

Thats my thoughts exactly, unless reqruitment has been contacted directly and they have said that the specials recruitment freeze is for 4 years then I would be apprehensive to believe any rumours that are going around. Being a serving special there are always remours going around about one thing or other, I have learned that unless it is in black and white and confirmed dont believe everything you hear.

That info came from a serving PC, but I was told 2 weeks ago by a Superintendent that SWP will definitely be recruiting early 2012. FINGERS CROSSED.:p
