Hello all,

Having recently passed a DPSI Law, French (even got the CIOL award for best 2018 candidate, yeah!), I'm now trying to get some assignments and to build up experience. I've registered as an interim member withthe NRPSI, and I'm also registered with Capita, but I understand the main court and police contracts are with TheBigWord.
But... Their system doesn't seem to be working, ie every time I try to fill in their online form the website takes me round in circles between the first 2 pages. I've tried contacting them several times, even got a vague reply from a chap claiming to be interested in my feedback about their new website, but he eventually stopped answering my emails. Attempts to contact them by phone led to nothing.

Did anyone else have this problem....? Any ideas? Is this really the main PSI provider in the UK ?!?

Thanks for your help/feedback!

Marion

Hello Marion Feb 11

Sorry, I cannot help you with this issue. Anyway, before spending your time, take a look at the Blue Board. You may not be so enthusiast to be part of their team.

Hi Mariella,
I'm well aware of the ethical and professional downsides of working with them, but they hold the main UK police and MoJ contracts so it's still a starting point.... Right? Any other tips would be welcome though!
Thanksicon_smile.gif

Hi, I just tried, after reading your post, and it seems it's the coding on their website that sucks a bit. It didn't work with Chrome, but it did work with Edge, so, in short: try using a different browser. HTH

None of the browsers work for me.... Feb 11

Thanks, but no... Neither Chrome, IE/Edge or Firefox get me any further than the "contact details" page...icon_frown.gif
