Has anyone who applied for this role received any response? I believe we were asked to complete a competency question based on making effective decisions, this was followed by an online situational judgment test.
There are already three or four threads for these type of jobs. Most of your answers will be on there.*
Someone needs amalgamate all these threads. *
I emailed last week and they said candidates are being reviewed and we should know if we're successful by the end of this week. Fingers crossed!
I applied for this too, passed the sift test (1st time - i've taken it twice before!) it says their reviewing my application. I imagine there was quiet a high volume of applicants. Fingers crossed we hear soon.
just got an email from them, they have now changed handing out results to mid next week.
Did you approach them first? Just wondering as I haven't received any email correspondence since I submitted the online test.
I haven't received anything today either. This waiting is awful!
I've hear nothing either - been checking my email all day :-/ Thanks for the updates! I will force myself not to check
until mid-week :-)
Having applied in the previous two campaigns, don't expect anything within normal or stated timescales. Get used to lots of waiting haha.
This makes me feel a lot better, I emailed them a couple weeks ago and they replied if i was successful I would hear by the end of this week. Ended up hearing nothing, but if you guys are in the same boat then I'll not write it off just yet!
From the other threads it looks like the dates for hearing something always get put back, so it can take months to hear if you've got an interview, then months to hear if you're successful.... or not !!
Other Civil Service seem more organised so I won't be putting my life on hold and will accept the first offer. HMRC's loss is someone else's gain is how I see it :-)
I got my results .... unsuccessful.
I got unsuccessful. I scored 2 this time around. Better than last time as I scored 1. Never got proper feedback this time which is disappointing!*
The guidance around providing feedback on the sift has changed unfortunately. Feedback will no longer be provided unless you reach the interview stage.
Personally I think this is a backwards step as you then have no way of knowing what/how to improve
