Having a look through s/point the other night I saw a BIN that referred to nationality rules etc for staff applicants.
With it comes a new for basic application form and TBH this more like a job application than an application to volunteer in a youth organisation. The references in particular seem to ask things that I didn’t think you were allowed to ask anymore. When we do references at work they have to be neutral, but the questioning is very, very strong. Also your line manager has make a declaration and sign something, which again is not inline with current practice for workplace references.
It also now incudes a need to sign a declaration on the Official Secrets Act.
It seems from reading that this will also be have to be dome every time an F90 is renewed.
This all seems very odd coming as it does after the contract we’ve had to sign or leave the Corps if we don’t.
So with the contract and now this, are we volunteering or applying for a job, it all seems very blurred.
