North Yorkshire Familiarisation Evenings

Recommended Posts

I can't post in any force-specific forums, so I had to make this here.

I've applied and passed the paper-sift and shortlisting stage. On the North Yorks website, it says this -- 


Following the shortlisting process you will be told if your application has made it through to the next stage. You will also be sent an invitation to a “familiarisation evening”. If you want to proceed further with your application, you must attend one of these events, there will be six held across the force area, you only need to attend one. 

Now, I am away from 8 September until 1 October on military exercise, so I cannot attend any of these. I've got nobody to contact at NYP and I can't find an email address to contact them with general recruitment queries. Does anybody know if this will prevent me being successful with my application? It seems a bit silly to outright deny me because I am away for all of these dates, I would be willing to come along as soon as I get back if necessary, to undertake a one-on-one familiarisation. 

What even is a familiarisation evening? I'd be slightly annoyed if it's a case of showing up, watching a PowerPoint, listening to a short presentation, asking any questions you have and then going home.
