Check your spam, that's where mine was. The email is sent by capita, not the scottish gov email address
They tried to send me an invitation twice and it never arrived - I checked my spam, no dice. So they had to add me manually and send me my login details. I would email Capita and Scottish Gov to let them know because last I heard they're not extending the tuesday deadline for peope like me who only got access on Friday. But if you don't get access till Monday maybe they will extend it for you?

Hi,

Yes, I joined the Scottish Government as part of the 2017 graduate programme. I don't have the exact figure for the starting salary but I believe it's around £28,000.

Does the salary go up every year on your scheme?

Thanks

Oh boy - my plan was do to this test this afternoon, and just realised I'm the same boat as a few of you - the test invite never arrived (not in my junk folder either)! I've got a huge deadline on Tuesday, so my mind's been pre-occupied - hopefully they're able to reply to my email quickly so I can make the test in time!

Tricky and Keira - did you only email them, or give them a ring as well?

Thanks!

Same happened to me, finally got it Friday afternoon but it had to be sent manually as well. Have you guys done the SJT yet? How hard / tricky did you find it?

I emailed Capita yesterday for the invite to be resent - have still not heard back. Also emailed Scot Gov, I guess will just have to wait until business hours tomorrow.

Hey, Thanks for all this great information. I have a more general question. I was wondering what career structure is in place? Graham you said you're in your second year (and by the way your work sounds so interesting!), what do you hope to do in the next few years ? What have other graduates done upon completion of the graduate scheme ? Any info / advice would appreciated !Claire

Hi Claire,

The SG graduate progamme is relatively new and at this point no group has finished the full 4 years (it's run every two years, so the first cohort are in their final year).

In terms of career progression, the intention of the pogramme is to get you into a C1 grade role. This would put you at a team leader level, you would normally have responsibility for a policy/operational area and several staff reporting to you. There's quite a bit of variety at C1 level, so you could really move into any area you wanted to.

I still have a few more years left on the programme and unfortunately I don't get to choose where my placements are. I've always had an interest in IT and there's a few cyber security teams within the Scottish Government that I would like to work with. I always try to keep an open mind about where I'm posted as sometimes the areas you think aren't very interesting can turn out to be really good. I really enjoyed my time in Chief Nursing Officer's Directorate despite having no real interest in health policy.

Cheers,

Graham

Yes, there's an annual salary increase though I don't have the exact numbers to hand for each of the salary steps.

Thanks,

Hi,

There's no requirement to have a 2:1 degree or above to get onto the programme. As long as you have a recognised degree (or equivelant) by July 2019 then you would be eligible to join.

Thanks,

Graham

Hi,

We are not fully sure for the online test stages, but I am pretty sure around 200 or so applicants made it through the assessment centre stage in our year

Many thanks,

Jason

Sooo do we think the results will come out today or is it a case of taking Capita's time lines with a kilo of salt?

Nope. Having gone through a big recruitment drive with the Scottish Government previously, take all time lines with a couple kilograms of sea salt. Friday means the next Monday. Next week means next month.
