    I had a call this morning too. I was told my location - but they told me they're giving some people 'Conditional offers' - which means you start before your checks are completed. There's obviously a minor risk involved if you have any kind of faulty background, but you don't have to accept the offer, you can wait for the checks to be completed.

    It would involve having limited working access though, but does mean you can complete your training while the checks are ongoing.

    Happy happy good luck to everyone else, I'm starting in June!
    Ah well done and good luck! What region / office?

    I had a a friend who started recently in the last round of vacancies in January.He got his results in late February and he got a start dat in early april.checks will take approx 4-6 weeks max but you have to be on the ball and chase if needed
    Hi. Who do you chase if needed? I contacted the lady on the application but she said Civil Service Recruiting were in charge if the checks and until they give the say so they cant make formal offers.... i have no other contacts to chase (if needed to)

    21 and below? I scored 21 exactly and really feel like i don't have a chance getting off the reserve list.
    A score of 20 and below is an automatic decline.The reserve list in london is made of applicants who achieved a score of 21

    I made the reserve list with a low 19. Not for London though and I'm not expecting to come off the list.

    Ratings 1-3 = the applicant has not provided enough evidence to demonstrate effectiveness in this competency. Rating 4 = the applicant has provided acceptable levels of evidence to demonstrate effectiveness in this competency. Ratings 5-7 = the applicant has provided comprehensive evidence to demonstrate effectiveness in this competency. The minimum score for Guaranteed Interview Scheme (GIS) candidates should be set at 4. In exceptional cases, such as when the volume of applicants is likely to be high, departments can merit list applicants and only take through to the next stage the highest scorers on the understanding that:  The pass mark for GIS candidates is set no higher than 4 per competency  Applicants are informed in the advert what mechanism the Department will be using to manage the high volume recruitment. For example, higher weighting for a lead competency

    Just found this if it helps

    23 reserve list South Wales ( Swansea , Morriston and Gorseinon ) does anyone know how many lists for each area there are ?? Or is there one list for South Wales and say a vacancy comes up in one of the centres do they just look on it and offer it to the person who has requested it nearest the top if any of you know what I mean by this ? I'm a quarter of way down apparently but was not told how many lists they have for one area lol
