Still currently going through the application! I agree - the suitability statement is too long! Do you have any tips?

Hi everyone,

I don't see a discussion about the Ofwat Graduate Development Programme for 2017 intake already, so I will start out the discussion about any updates in the due course. Any updates are very much welcome!

A brief timeline of my application:
  • Application opened 17 Feb
  • Applied 19 Feb
  • Online assessments sifting TBC
  • Application closes 13 Mar
  • AC to be held 21 Apr


Can we all agree that the suitability statement was way too long?

For anyone looking to apply here are the programme details.

Cheers
Apparently there are two sifts before the online testing stage - is it normally this rigorous for a grad programme?

There were almost 300 people who applied for the programme and 92 are being passed to Ofwat. Of those 92, we expect around 50 of you to go to progress to the online testing stage.

Online test invitations have started going out! All the best, I hope everybody gives it their best shot.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find practice test for the online test? Also did anyone else apply to both ofgem and ofwat?

Me! Both Ofgem and Ofwat are using the Psychometric Portal which I have never heard of before. I am just practising using the generic ones such as SHL and do the tests closer to the deadline.
How did you find the online tests?

Was very pushed for time for the maths one. I'm hoping it isn't negatively marked, because there were one or two I ended up guessing 😕

I didn't either! Nonetheless, just got an invitation to the AC! Fingers crossed for you.
Thank you, so did I! I'm surprised!

Hi, I've applied for the Regulatory Policy Analyst role and haven't heard anything since the online testing stage. I assume its because of Covid-19. Have you heard anything?
