Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone has applied for a Business Support Officer position within the NCA and what was the outcome of your application?

I've had a successful at interview email but not quite sure what to make of it given it says my details will be in a candidate pool for 12 months and your posted in merit order - which doesn't really help with planning either to move/work etc

It got me wondering about anyone else's experiences?

Regards,
Soph

November email came for security clearance application. I also then got the email in december confirming location but pending security checks etc hope that helps

Thanks that does help. The email I got said they were posting in merit order based on the highest scores. I scored all 6's so was a bit surprised by that. That's great you have got your confirmation. Does it have a start date? Hope I hear something soon as I know people who have been asked to go for a substance misuse test but I haven't heard anything yet....

They have given a 2 day slot to choose from and it's in Birmingham. I'm sure you will hear soon they probably can't do everyone in the same week.

No I haven't received anything. Didn't we fill those forms in already? What is it asking for? Thanks.
