    Has anybody had their interview yet and can give advice on what to expect? I've got mine tomorrow morning. :/

    Also, have any of you been able to login to the manpower site to view their application? It's never let me do it since I applied, but would be useful to see exactly what I submitted about previous jobs etc.

    Last week they put up an advertisement for an additional 150(ish) roles internally across the UK so must be having another big recruitment intake shortly.

    I have my interview for this on Tuesday and I'm feeling quite nervous!

    I have been to a similar interview within the civil service before for a Health & Safety Inspector but they don't give you feedback. Not sure what to do differently! Are you just going to talk about the competencies you wrote about in your application?
    I turned up on Friday to have my interview and no one had any record of me being scheduled for an interview and the interviewer had actually gone home. I was devastated- have emailed manpower to see what comes of it?!*

    What location are you for? *

    That's ridiculous! That said, it's not surprising - my experiences of Civil Service recruitment always seem to be really unorganised.

    Fingers crossed manpower can get it rearranged for you though.

    I've applied for Glasgow, what centre was it you were going for?

    To be honest, I thought 45 mins would be far too long if they were just ognna ask us the 5 compentencies "Tell me when you made a good decision..." etc.

    I recently applied for this. The deadline was the 12th Sept. Gosh found the Verbal reasoning test a little weird.
