Hi guys,

Quick question, I am thinking of taking a position in the Home Office, but it's not my ideal role. Ideally I want to move to become an immigration officer or border force.

So, how different is the internal recruitment process to the external?

The internal process is largely the same up to and including the interview it’s the post interview check that are quicker on internal

Hi thanks for replying!

Are there jobs posted just for internals only?

Yes generally most civil service vacancies are advertised internally first. Basically they can advertise in just that government department or across the civil service and after that it goes externally. On some occasions the internal and external are run concurrently

Just remember if you take a role as an external you wouldn’t be able to apply for an internal post till you complete probation (generally 6 months)
