Hi that's great. No I got an email today saying I'm still in the pool. Can I ask which location that's for?

Not sure whats going on as the email said that we take priority over the new campaign so I guess offers are given out in order of the checks being completed?

Hello!

I'm going to be based in Bristol - based on the way reserve lists work in other government departments they usually allocate roles to people on the list before and during the interview stage of the recruitment drive, so I wouldn't be surprised if you heard back with a provisional offer in the coming weeks

Have you had your security clearance back?

I had an offer letter with post details in december which I signed and returned. Completed the drugs test and security clearance.

I work for another government dept and know the clearance can take a few weeks atleast.

Also saw that they have posted over 50 positions for this role. And a grade below & higher. Hoping to hear something soon!

I already had the security clearance. They sent an email the other day saying I'm still in the pool but take priority over the new candidates so I'm hoping it won't take too much longer.

Thats good! My role we only require counter terrorism level clearance and was hoping the SC level doesnt take too long. Do you also work for another govt dept?

Hey! congrats on the offer. I myself have not long been offered a place at NCA, i wanted to ask if anyone here had any idea how long the process for checks/tests may now take from this point on and what it consists of? is there a physical test? the drug test do they take blood? (im terrified of needles), how long does this process take including emplyment checks. any info would be great! hoping i dont have to overcome this fear once again aha.

Need some advice re NCA application form. It states experience then CV. I feel like im duplicating myself. Did you give clear examples on experience or a summary of your experence?
Thanks

Hi I'm afraid I haven't applied using the new system yet. When I applied last year it was the old competency system with no CV. I guess CV is asking for your work experience? Good luck and be prepared for the wait.

Hi

I applied on the old format. Just competencies.

I would maybe keep your CV brief as application asks for examples of behaviours.

When do you start?
