I'm just filling in an application for the above vacancy and a page on the application confused me. With today being the deadline and also I Sunday I assume emailing the recruitment team would not get me an answer in time.

On the "Experience and Skills" page there is the following paragraph: "Existing civil servants who are already a member of the Government Statistician Group (GSG) - Please note if you are already in the GSG you do not need to re-sit the online multiple choice test but please make it clear in your application form."
Followed by the question "Do you have the skills and experience as outlined above?" If you select yes a text box appears asking for additional details.

I don't think this is particularly clear: is this just a space for existing GSG members to indicate that fact? or are all candidates expected to use this page to write a statement explaining how they meet the job requirements, in addition to providing competency examples provided in another section of the application?

I have never seen a page like this on a CS Jobs application before and I don't want to complete the application incorrectly.

If the box only appears when you hit yes, then the box is only for GSG members.

Thanks.

I thought as much but always get paranoid that I'm being an idiot and filling the form in wrong.

Do you know if we will be tested on all the competencies it lists in the advert or is it just the 3 that were on the application form?

To my knowledge, the interview questions will be based on all those listed job advert (three statistical ones plus three more general ones).

Hi have you got one? I don't know what else they're going to ask about data analysis, acquiring data other than what's already on your form.
