Compliance Caseworker EO/HOWatch
Hope I'm not duplicating. I could see threads for previous rounds of applications, but nothing for the ones being currently advertised. Has anyone applied for the recent ones where the deadlines are either today (EO) or next week (HO) in Croydon?
My reserve list was due to end in september and anyone left on the list would basically be deleted and would have to apply again. so i aasume theyve been doing more recruitment so they always have people ready to fill spaces.
Although it does concern me a little that they are constantly recruiting does that mean they have a high turn over of staff and people dont like/cant do it??
The eo/heo jobs seems to be the same thing (only based on what ive read on old threads ive never applied for a heo role) but one pays more wonder if anyone knows the difference between the 2 roles?
I already work in a different agency So already a civil servant but an AO so this is a step up and i could understand in other areas of the country that they needed to replace staff after closures but not at newcastle as they are already based at the hub so no closures. Maybe just a lot of work or people move around a lot it seems like a huge department with all the different areas and teams.
My opinion is that you dont have anything to worry about with those scores. They are really good and i would be surprised if you didnt get through to them looking at your competencys
It is certainly a unique recruitment process and its not very quick either!!
Thanks for the tip. Just checked mine too and been invited to interview. Bit surprised as the closing date was originally last Monday but had been extended to 1st September, so didn’t think they would start sending out invites for interviews until after then.
Congratulations when is your interview? I have mine next week. I was just wondering as you have previously had an interview with hmrc are the questions very specific or more vague? I understand what the competency’s are but I cannot think on the spot so I am preparing my answers based on the effective behaviours for those competency’s
That does make sense and is very helpful thanks. It’s sort of what I thought if I picked examples based around the compentency/effective behaviours which is what they are looking for how can I go wrong 😆. Even if the questions are far off I will stick to what I have prepared. You have done well to be successful at all 3 interviews!! I don’t want top scores I just want to get through the interview In one piece as I haven’t had an interview in over 6 years. I heard over 500 people are being interviewed
Definitely didn't look anywhere close to 500 available slots for interviews when I booked mine at Newcastle, but don't know if they have released further slots.
Hi, just checking are the questions all competency based looking for your examples or have you found they ask...’what would you do in this situation’ etc scenario based questions?
Is yours this week or next?I do think I would struggle with a question around following policy but going to have a good think about, but like you say as long as you hit the competencies sounds like it won't be a disaster, I like the idea of a Dungeons and Dragons answer though!
Do you know whether to go into the Longbenton entrance or the one down towards High Heaton btw? Sat Nav takes you to the Heaton one but heard a few people say the sat nav takes you to the wrong one.
Out of interest what scores did people get in their verbal/numerical/judgement tests? ☺️
Hi, are you applying for this role and have you had your interview?
I got 97% Numerical, 99% verbal reasoning & 80% the sjt was the hardest as essentially you are second guessing what you think they want to hear. How did you do?
