Is an 'allocation meeting' a second interview? (Civil Service/ ONS) watch

    • Thread Starter

    I applied to the Office for National Statistics and the assessment process consisted of

    (a) an online application
    (b) a 60 min interview (following success at (a))

    I was recently informed that I passed the interview and should now wait for an 'allocation meeting' where my assigned business area will be determined, however the email also says there may be a 'reserve list'.Does this mean I am definitely getting an offer? Is the 'allocation meeting' an interview and if so how can I prepare?
