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

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)

Also to remember that once you pass your probation period. Depends on the job and can be 3 months. You won't have a probation period in any role in the civil service which which is great. I recently got my 3rd job on promotion and not had a probation period for over 3 years.

Do you know how different it is for fixed term contracts? Is it as simple to get a promotion or even a permanent contract?

Once your in your in. Just register your work e-mail in the civil service account settings area and you will see a host of job everywhere. They tend to recruit internally first before externally. Some times they do externally first .
