The interview was hard and horrible and now have to wait 3 weeks.

I was told that they are continuing to have a huge recruitment drive well into 2017 so there will be plenty more opportunities.
I heard this too. Hard and horrible does not sound good!

Does anyone get the feeling that the ones waiting to hear are either getting interviews or they are going over the Competences again as others from the same area have already got rejections?

Or they have lost the scores and have to go through the competencies again?

Just had my interview in Cardiff today. They are doing 3 interviews per hour over a 3 week period. I personally found the interview enjoyable, just gave an example for each competency and they asked further questions on them. Good luck if you are going and make sure you prepare your examples, get someone to tick them off against the competencies and the explaining paragraph of the competencies and most of all go in relaxed and be confident. Don't forget they are testing you on the communication competency whilst you are speaking!

Hello,

I am due tomorrow.

Are the questions: Can you tell me a time when you have made an effective decision? (for example). Are there any ice-breakers, tell me something about yourself, etc?

Got this email at 4.20pm - more than 24 hours since the email they sent yesterday morning saying I would hear within 24hrs. Why don't they just give us a realistic timescale instead of 24hrs then disappointing us when it doesn't happen? Seriously peed off now!!!

Thank you.

Sorry to prattle on, were the questions phrased: tell me a time when you have delivered at pace or managed a quality service?

Hi mine lasted 45 minutes. Icebreaker was tell us a little about yourself and why you want this job. Other than that it was all about the competencies. Best of luck.

Yes, so it was tell us a time when you have .... in my case she read out the competency explanation paragraph and asked when i had done that. They then both asked further questions. It felt like they were asking for examples to meet all the criteria on the competencies. Found them really nice and helpful to be honest.

Many thanks.

Very nervous, your description has helped settle those nerves.

Good luck with your outcome/result.

I'll keep you posted.
