    One of my friends has - she hasn't heard back after the verbal reasoning test yet. What about you?

    Sorry just to clarify. It was a verbal reasoning test you completed and not the HEO Civil service initial sift test?? I had completed the sift test a couple of months ago, so maybe they would just use my banked scores, however to keep me waiting for a couple of weeks when they know i haven't made it?? smh

    I think it went okay, nerves got in the way a little. Plus I didn't wear a suit, and it seems to be a very formal office.

    Can never tell how a civil service interview went mind! Good luck to everyone else with interviews!!
    Hey hope it went well and the best of luck! I have my interview tomorrow, did they mainly ask examples of the competencies? or anything else?

    Hi all! I had my interview yesterday.

    I feel like it went well though the interviewers gave absolutely nothing away. I believe interviewees should hear back in three weeks time.

    Best of luck to everyone yet to sit for theirs!

    I had mine yesterday! It's so hard to tell how I did. I just felt like I was talking for ages!

    I was told three weeks to wait as well.

    Good luck everyone

    Hi, I had my interview on the 18th and the interviewer told me that the interviews were being held until the end of May. I selected the first slot (that's what they told me anyway). It looks like those interviewed on the 18th and the 25th were both told three weeks, so not really sure here. When I asked about start dates they also said they were not sure...when I asked about specialist areas, again they said it depends on us. I contacted Capita and they said they will have an idea this week on successful candidates this week, lets see.

    Is anyone else applying to work from Sheffield?

    I applied for Cardiff myself.

    I've noticed that on the application page, under the 'view attachments' tab they've added some documents on the 6th June.Apparently that means that they've had the results and are uploading. Not long now all!

    Well spotted - thanks! Did you get the T&Cs, FAQs and character questionnaires etc? All encouraging stuff. Seems like months since my interview!
